Run 4 Us 2020

This is our annual Fun Run fundraising event to support learning for every student at Newlands Intermediate.

Main image

In the past, our fundraising efforts have focussed on providing new and good quality sports and recreation equipment across the school, providing equal opportunities for all students to participate in school-wide events, upgrading musical instruments, purchasing sewing machines and AR/VR equipment to broaden our curriculum.

During our efforts in 2019, the Newlands Intermediate students ran, walked and crawled 9,500.5 km. That is the height of 30,782 Eiffel towers, running the length of the Yenisei River 2.75 times or drilling 3/4 of the way through planet Earth. We are hoping with our extra numbers this year that we break 11,000 km. Astonishingly, 276 students walked/ran a half marathon or more! They are all in the photo above. What a wonderful effort.

Dear Whanau,

The Newlands Intermediate "Run for Us" has become a casualty of the Covid-19 outbreak. We have decided that the responsible thing to do is to POSTPONE this event until term 4.

To all the generous donors we thank you and you will notice that the closing date for this page has shifted out to early December.

Please take care of each other out there and we look forward to keeping you up to date in the future.

Warmest regards

Simon McAtamney
