SCDHS Country Week 2020

Southern Cross District High School, WA

We are writing to you to inform you about a fantastic, educational opportunity our secondary students have been provided with next school term. For the first time in many years, our Year 7-10 students have been invited to participate in Country Week 2020. Country Week is an annual event coordinated by School Sport WA that takes place in the final week of Term 3 each year. It involves students from district high schools across Western Australia travelling to Perth to compete against one another in various sports.

It is our understanding that Southern Cross District High School has not participated in the event for many years, however, we feel that many of our secondary students would benefit from this opportunity. Throughout the week, students would participate in a number of sporting and non-sporting activities. The aim of this educational experience is to provide our students with the opportunity to further develop their social and cultural competence, whilst being active and encouraging physical activity. In the future and if successful, it is our hope that we would be able to offer this opportunity to students on an annual basis.

This July, we are trying to fund our year 7-10 students to journey to Perth from 20 September – 25 September to participate in the event. Parents will be expected to contribute financially to enable their child to attend, however, the total cost of the camp far exceeds this amount. As such, students and their families will also be participating in a number of fundraising events over the course of the next few months. Even so, it is going to be very difficult for us to be able to raise the funds needed to be able to attend.

We live in an amazing mineral rich area of Western Australia, but it has come to our attention that many school children in this area are quite disadvantaged in a social and cultural sense. In addition, junior sport in the Yilgarn region has been significantly impacted by Covid-19 and, as such, many of our students will not have the opportunity to participate in community-based sport during the winter months of 2020. 

If you feel that you may be in a position to support these students to attend Country Week 2020, any financial contributions in the form of a donation would be greatly appreciated by our students.
