Goat Race 2018
On your marks, get set, go ! More amazing obstacles more fun and all for a great cause. The countries finest Charity race of the year returns and everyone, including the goats, can't wait to get stuck in.
The race is taking place on the 23rd March and each of our 7 school pygmy goats, Alan, Ethel, William, Bertie , Angel and Paviilion and Downs (racing together) will be teamed up with 2 student Goatherds and will have to complete an obstacle course against the clock and against each other. The fastest goat wins a trophy and the honour of being crowned SuperGoat. They have all be dreaming of winning the title this year, game on!
Students have to raise money to transfer into carrots & goat treats, to lure their goat around the course.
So we're asking if our friends in the wider world might be able to support our Goat Race and Sport Relief by sponsoring the goat of their choice with whatever contribution they are able to make. You can make a donation by cheque, payable to Varndean School, or by our Just Giving Page here:
Please make sure you mention the goat you'd like to sponsor and your name so we can thank you in our social media coverage. The event is already sparking lots of imagination and media interest.

No words to describe her powerful and heartbreakingly sad story. Not all stories have a happy ending. Thank you Monica for sharing your powerful message. #enrichmentweek2018 #varndean #creatingmemories #bearingwitness https://t.co/RvJL5Zvnln
#Snowdonia Mount Tryfan. We climbed the mountain over several hours in cloud, drizzle rain & slight winds. Students demonstrated so much resilience & overcame some v challenging moments of feeling like "I can't do it" to just pushing themselves through it & helping each other. https://t.co/Dsx41QD0eU
