Saturday 9th May would normally be the Gonzaga College Sports Day. Unfortunately we will not be able to run the event this year due to Covid-19 restrictions.
What we would like to propose as an alternative to Sports Day is that we as a community on the day would take part in some physical exercise: a run, a walk or a cycle, within current restrictions. As the day coincides with Pieta House’s annual fundraising appeal, we would ask if possible that you make a donation to the Darkness into Light appeal. Like many charities, they have had to cancel their main fundraising project this year and would be really benefit from any help we can give . To show our support for mental health awareness and the great work they do the organisers ask that we wear something yellow while we take part in our activity.
It would also be greatly appreciated if we could have a photographic record of our unique Sports Day 2020. Please take a photograph of your individual or family participation and email it to Ms McNamara or send it as a Direct Message to the school Instagram account (@gonzagacollege) These photos will be added to the school website and may be used in next year’s Gonzaga Record.
If you would like any more details, please contact any of the Sports Day organising committee: Ms McCarthy, Ms Morris, or Mr Stewart.
Hoping you can join us tomorrow raising money for a great cause.
