Kids get into spirit of walkathon
Children adorned with crazy hats, tinsel and reindeer antlers took to the streets of Mt Roskill recently.
They could be seen marching up Dominion Rd in droves, barely stopping to take a breath.
But it was all for a good cause. They were taking part in the annual Dominion Road School walkathon.
Children of all ages followed a course around Mt Roskill to help raise money for their school. And to add some Christmas cheer, they donned hats and decorations.
Principal Marian Caulfield says the walkathon was a great success.
“It went fantastically well and all the kids participated.
“We hope to be able to get new technology for our school,” she says.
Dominion Road School has been holding the walkathon for the past three years.
Children aged from five to 11 took part in various walking courses while family and friends sponsored them.
Mrs Caulfield says the money raised has not been counted yet, but the school hopes to find $10,000 to buy new data projectors.
