BSB Organises Sponsored Walk/Race in Aid of Save The Children

Come and join us for our traditional Sponsored Walk/Run on Saturday, 3rd March, in aid of NGO Save the Children. The sporting event will take place at 10am at the Olympic Canal in Castelldefels, just next to the main school’s site.

Students of all ages from both campuses are welcome to participate in the race, with their relatives and friends, as well as the school´s teaching and administrative staff, all united for this educational sport and aid project which enables work to be done for the defence and promotion of Children´s Rights both inside and outside of the classroom.

This year, the BSB celebrates the 11th edition of the Sponsored Walk/Race. As a new feature, a group of Pre-University students have been put in charge of organising this year´s event, involving parents, students and volunteer staff, as well as finding sponsors. In this way, the activity encourages the development of students´ social and organisational skills, and forms part of the core subject “Creativity, Action and Service” (CAS), which encourages learning through experience.

The running of the race is very simple: students travel a symbolic distance, be it running or walking. Each family donates the amount they deem appropriate for each kilometre covered, and the funds raised support Save the Children´s programmes against child malnutrition. “No amount is too big or too small; they are all vital. Young children start to learn the importance of generosity, these are children helping other children”, explains Save the Children.

A fun morning is expected. Thanks to the cooperation of the volunteers and sponsors, alongside the race, the student committee has organised a series of events to further brighten the day including a raffle, Zumba, karaoke, games, cake-decorating, and face-painting, amongst others.

Don’t miss it! We look forward to lots of fun and fundraising!
