Pukekohe Intermediate Open Evening  for Year 6 Valley students

Valley School Cross Country / Fun-Run

Thank you to all the students and families for supporting our Valley School Fun-Run.

There are two weeks to go until our School Fun-Run. Hopefully students have been using their student profile pages at to get the most out of the fundraiser.

Currently we have raised around $10,000, so if you are yet to create a page, we hope you will. Remember, the money raised will be going towards new sports equipment and programmes for our Valley students.

We’ve set our money due back date as 23 August, so please make sure you’ve returned all your money to to your classroom teacher by then. 


Between 23 August and 30 August simply visit and create / log into your Profile Page.  Then click on the ‘ORDER PRIZES’ button and follow the prompts. We have been advised from the School Fun-Run team that the RC boats are a faulty product and to choose a different prize.

If you have any questions, please contact the School Fun-Run team on 0800 377 170 and they will gladly assist!

Our School Fun-Run Event Programme starts from around 10.30am. Please come along to support your runners! We ask that you do not stand in the middle of the field or on the footpath by the junior block as our runners will be using these areas.
