iChallenge 2017

28/03/2017

​Frequently Asked Questions:


What is the iChallenge?

The iChallenge is a VERY special event unique to our school and is a major fundraising event run by the P&C. For approximately 20-30mins the students of HRSS get to run, walk, crawl and climb over our specially designed obstacle course that includes two inflatable obstacles from AUSSIE INFLATABLES.

What are the funds raised used for?

This year half the funds will be used for Technology (iPads, laptops or similar) and the other half will go towards our Fixed Shade Structure on the Oval. Sponsorship dollars help us to meet our goals! Every little bit helps.
To qualify for prizes please have ALL prize money to the office by FRIDAY 24TH MARCH

When is it?

The event runs all day on Tuesday the 28th March – Week 10.

Is it a free dress day?

YES! The whole day is a free dress day and we recommend the children wear clothes that can get DIRTY!!!! Normal school shoes are compulsory as they will be taken off prior to starting the course. We also suggest that students bring a change of clothes and a towel so they can change after their turn on the event course.

Can parents come and watch?

Yes you can BUT more importantly we NEED VOLUNTEERS! An event this size can’t happen without LOTS of volunteers, so if you have any free time at all on Tuesday the 28th March then please email pandc@highlandreservess.eq.edu.au​

Can my child participate if I forget to return the permission slip?

NO. Last year there were some children bitterly disappointed that they had to sit out and miss the fun. However due to this being classified as a Medium risk activity the school CAN’T let the students participate if the forms have not been 100% filled out, signed and returned to the classroom teacher by FRIDAY 17TH MARCH.

What are this Year’s Prizes?

  • The child with the highest amount of sponsorship money across the whole school will
WIN an iPad mini of their own!
  • In each class the child that raises the most amount of money will win a pack from Amart Sports.
  • Each student that raises over $20 will go into the draw to win a Vivo Fit Fitness band.
  • The highest fundraising classes between Prep – Year 3 and Year 4 -6 will WIN EXTRA TIME on the iChallenge course and an icy pole each.
  • The class with the highest sponsorship PARTICIPATION will also WIN EXTRA TIME on the iChallenge course and an icy pole each.
This is such a GREAT event and now WE NEED YOU to help your children to safely obtain sponsorship to ensure that this event continues into the future. ​
