School Cross Country POSTPONED till Thursday 30th May 11.00am-3.00pm (will finish earlier)


Deanwell School are having a cross country run on 28th May 2019. Every year we participate in a school Cross Country run as part of our Health and Physical Education curriculum.

This year we are fundraising for Kidscan to help Kiwi kids in need of all ages across New Zealand.

Your fundraising helps to provide Kiwi kids in need with food, raincoats, shoes and basic healthcare so they can get to school dry and warm, fuelled to learn and ready to reach their potential.

2019 KidsCan School Fun Run Sponsorship Form booklets have been sent out to students and spares are available from the school office.  Get online and start fundraising today.
