The Botanic to Bridge is a fantastic event that is currently in its 7th year.
 
I strongly encourage all Toolooa students and their families to get behind this great local event and in the process help raise some money for Toolooa SHS.
 
IMPORTANT DATES
 
Registrations Open – Now!
Registrations Close – Wednesday 17th August 2016 at 8pm
Event Day – Sunday 21st August 2016
 
Registering
The Botanic to Bridge is a fantastic event which encourages families to embrace healthy and active lifestyles, and provides an opportunity to invest funds into our schools and community. Over the past six years, Botanic to Bridge has contributed over $145,000 into our regional schools, funding sport and recreation equipment and initiatives. Student participation ensures that funding is directed to our school. Students can register as individuals, in a team, or as part of a family registration. A family registration consists of up to five people (two adults and up to three school age children). Families with more than three children or two adults will need to register additional members individually.
 
Children four years and under are free. If they are not travelling in a pram they will need to be registered.
 
Note: When registering as a family or in a team, all members must compete in the same event, either the 3km or 8km. Family and team entries cannot be split across the two events.
 
Team Entries
Students and teachers can also enter as part of a team entry, be it with class mates or as part of a mixed team including family and friends.
 
Fundraising
The registration fee for school aged children is $10, whether entering as an individual or as part of a team. The entire $10 registration fee for children is returned to Toolooa SHS.
 
Parents can nominate  Toolooa SHS to ensure $5 from their adult registration is returned to the school. Similarly, teachers and staff who wish their registration fee to be directed to Toolooa SHS can nominate the school in a similar way to parents. If registering as a family, it is important that each individual person nominates Toolooa SHS when registering, to ensure this payment can be directed to our school.
 
As we have done over the past few years, we once again are trying to add a little more encouragement to persuade our students to enter this year’s event.
 
Mr Goltz has agreed to continue the promise of some sort of reward for anyone who can beat our fastest finishing teacher over the line.
 
So get online at www.botanictobridge.com.au and register to compete in one of this year’s events.
