Thank You For All Your Help

Thank you for all your support for our World Class Sport and Wellbeing campaign so far. With your help we have managed to purchase some amazing equipment to put into our brilliant new facilities. The next phase is to begin the fitness testing aspect of our project, build a new long jump pit and build a floodlit astroturf.

Last years Surrey Half was a huge success with so many people taking part and having fun whilst getting fit and raising lots of money! We are therefore running the 2017 event so please get involved and lets see if we can beat last years impressive total of £20K. We have linked with the event organisers so that students, parents and staff can take advantage of the discount codes below!

To enter, complete the entry form on the Surrey Half Marathon website and in the appropriate box, enter:

to raise donations for the school, you can either download a sponsorship form, or set up your own JustGiving account.

We are of course exploring all funding avenues and have applied to some of the large funding organisations but the more we are able to raise ourselves the stronger our applications become.

Surrey Half Marathon 2016 Top Fundraisers

We are delighted to be teaming up with local ‘Mumtrepeneur’ and St Dunstan’s parishioner Lesley Hill, to help raise money for our new sports hall. Lesley has agreed to donate half of all proceeds from the sale of her children's products via our new website,, to the school.

Lesley's products include the award-winning Roll-Up Draw Mat and Dry-erase Busy Book, which are designed for kids-on-the-go aged 3-7 years. Both these items are light and compact and perfect for traveling. In addition, they encourage children’s creativity, learning and interaction with friends and family as they are perfect for playing games such as Hangman, Battleships, Noughts & Crosses etc. Kids can also draw, write stories, keep a diary, create a scene for their cars and figures – the possibilities are endless. They are also proving popular by many for practising spelling and times tables as they are much more fun to write on, and erase, than paper! They are wipe-clean and durable which also means less paper being thrown in the bin.

Recently, Lesley has designed her ‘chalkboard’ table runner which adds a lot of fun to your table at parties.

A record of all sales will be given to SJB so you can be sure that half the spend will go towards this great cause.

So please take a look at the website where you can order some kids’ birthday presents and support our school at the same time.

Any questions, then please contact Lesley on 07764988709 or Sam McPherson on 01483 714715 or 07930480350.

This campaign is not just about elite sport but about engaging every student in physical activity and championing healthy living to the whole SJB community.

About SJB

SJB is situated near Woking Town Centre (22 minutes from London Waterloo by rail). The school was built in the late '60s' and so whilst it would not be described as attractive from the outside we feel the learning environment inside is great. Read on...
