Dear Immanuel School Family
Re: Australian Lutheran World Service - Walk My Way
We're stepping out to bring love to life through Walk My Way!
When: Saturday 1 May 2021
Where: Starting at Redeemer School Nuriootpa to St Jakobi at Lyndoch
Who: Immanuel School Gawler
We're walking in recognition of the long dangerous journey refugees must take to find safety - and to raise money to help send a refugee child to school at the same time. It's being organised by Australian Lutheran World Service (ALWS), the overseas aid and development agency of the Lutheran Church.
It's only $26 to help provide a teacher, textbook and table for one pre-school child living in a refugee camp in East Africa. Many of these kids were born here, and know no other life. Some even arrived alone, without mum or dad.
We want to help in a practical way that changes lives - and know we can do just that!
We'd love it if you could support us in this challenge by sponsoring us. If so, go to the link below and click on the donate button.
If you want to give it a go yourself feel free to join our school team The Immanuel Gawler Gazelles. If so, go to the link below and click on join team.
Our school highly values the work of ALWS and we fully support this event and in recognition of this we have decided to pay all registration fees. To negate the registration fees please use the Coupon code - ILSG1985
For those who think the 26km will be too much of a challenge there are shorter options (5km, 9km, 20km) and we will have access to our school bus to help provide a taxi service. More details will come again soon, once we have an idea of the number of school participants. School staff will supervise Year 6 students. All other students are more than welcome to join the team but will need to be supervised by a parent/guardian.
If you decide you want to give it a go yourself, you can find out more here at https://walkmyway.org.au/
Thank you so much for taking action to bring love to life for these refugee kids and supporting us in the Walk My Way challenge!
Later in the year all students at Immanuel will participate in ALWS led activities here at school.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
