Sponsored Walk 2019

Sponsored Walk 2019

Sponsored Walk 2019: Very proud of all the Alford Academy pupils that took part in the Sponsored Walk on Friday. A very special thanks to Forestry and Land Scotland for giving us permission for the event, to Rs Coaches and Peace Coaches for providing the transport and to all the Staff and S6 Pupils who provided support on the walk and behind the scenes. It was a great day!
Pupils can now start collecting and handing in sponsorship money/donations. If you have collected a large amount of cash you may hand this straight in to the school office – remember to give them your name. If you are handing in a cheque or a smaller amount of cash you can put it in a sealed envelope with your name, SDA class and the word SPONSORED WALK clearly marked on the outside of the envelope and place it in the pupil drop box outside Guidance offices. Remember the money raised will go to very good causes – the School Fund which is used to support trips, events and activities for pupils throughout the year and charities nominated by Interact pupils. Please give generously. All Sponsored Walk money must be handed in before the October holidays. Thank you for your support!
