Run 2K for Kyle

On Tuesday 4 August we held a very special event during Mentor time – “Run 2K for Kyle”. This was a student led initiative and we are all so proud of the group of students who organised such a positive event in the memory of their close friend, Kyle Kovacsics, who passed away at the end of Term 1. Middle School Captain, Dilara Isikli, was the driving force behind the event supported by Year 9 students Emmerson Shankie, Sophie Spurgeon, Holly MacMillan, Annie Ea, Angus Macpherson and Ami Claassen. Students participating wore purple for the run as this was Kyle’s favourite colour and all had sponsorship. Many had very generous sponsorship, as I type this, I know they have raised over $2000 to be donated to Kids Help Line. Kingston Youth Services came along to support the event and Kyle’s family were all in attendance and were so overwhelmed and touched by the level of support in recognition of their son/nephew.
