Athon / Fundraising

Each year our major fundraising is our Athon.  Every year will have a different theme.  2015 was a challenge Athon with an PE focus,  2016 a mad scientist Athon with a science focus and in 2017 we held a Rock-athon with an Arts/Music focus.  The Athon is organised by our Friends at Baverstock (FAB) parent group.  Money raised from these Athons have in the past gone towards:

  • Purchasing our school van
  • Updating our BNN TV studio
  • The Tiger Turf
  • Our all weather cricket pitch
  • Baverstock Beach (Sandpit)
  • Adventure playgrounds

This year we decided to change it up a bit and have a Sponsored School Fun Run  …… see below for the details
