Annual Jogathon – this Saturday 9 September

From the Jogathon Team:

Gaby, Nicole, Connor, Panashe, Luca 

Jogathon The Jogathon is a charity event tradition at LIS. For the first time, a small group of Secondary students have organized the event entirely. Our goal is to make a difference for the Orphanage Casa das Crianças. All proceeds directly fund the facilities at the orphanage and improve the welfare of the children there. 

The Jogathon has been a very successful community event in the past. We hope to see lots of families supporting this cause. Join us this Saturday September 9, from 9:00 – 11:00 AM by the basketball court. The Jogathon Team will welcome you and direct you.

Find below the sponsorship form.

Jogathon is back – 9 September

“It´s that time of the year… the annual LIS Jogathon is right around the corner! (Saturday, 9th of September)

For new students and families joining us who may not know what the Jogathon is, it is a fundraising event that LIS hosts annually, whereby all donations are proceeded towards the orphanage Casa das Crianças; which is an orphanage that the school has been working with for the past few years. As a community, we would like your participation in donating shoes suitable for running, which will be used by the kids joining us from the orphanage. This way, they are able to join in the event with everyone else.

The boxes where students can place the shoes, will be delivered to each homeroom by Tuesday (29th of August) and shoes will be collected by year 13 students every 3 days up until the day of the Jogathon (9th of September).

More information about how you can join in the fun or help out at the LIS Jogathon on September 9 will be coming soon.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact either Nicole, Connor, Gaby from Tear 13 or LIS teacher Ms. Sheila Ascencio (sascencio@lisluanda.com).

Annual Jogathon a huge success

Thank you so much to everyone for your support and participation in the Jogathon! It was wonderful to see so many parents and siblings joining in and supporting a wonderful cause.

We had an amazing team of students in the secondary school helping to organize logistics and enlist volunteers to make this event happen. In the elementary school, we had many classes involved in spreading awareness by making posters and passing out sponsor forms, as well as making bagged lunches for the children from the orphanage.

In past years, funds raised for Casas de Crianças has gone to buy additional land and to purchase washing machines. We know they are extremely grateful for your generous donations. We are still receiving donations in the section offices. Our current total is 1,332,630 Kz

Obrigado a todos pelo vosso apoio e participação na Jogatona deste ano! Foi fantástico ver tantos pais e irmãos juntarem-se a nós para apoiar uma boa causa.

Tivemos uma excelente equipa de alunos do Secundário a ajudar-nos a organizar a logística e a mobilizar voluntários para fazer deste evento um sucesso. Na secção Primária, tivemos muitas turmas empenhadas em divulgar o evento, fazendo cartazes e distribuindo os formulários de patrocínio, para além de preparar os saquinhos de almoço para dar às crianças do orfanato.

Em anos anteriores, os fundos arrecadados para a Casa das Crianças foram utilizados para comprar mais terreno e arranjar máquinas de lavar. Temos a certeza de que eles estão muito gratos pelos vossos generosos contributos. Ainda estamos a receber donativos nas nossas secretarias. Até agora, temos um total de 1,332,630 Kz

Cash donations are also accepted and should be delivered directly to Teresa in the PYP office. Regardless of donation method, please bring your pledge forms to the PYP office for your students efforts to be counted.
  2. Help your child clean out their closet and bring any gently used shoes and socks to school to donate to the students of Casa das Crianças. Collection boxes will be located in front of the PYP Office in Building 2 (the red building) and in Secondary homerooms.
