Skool 2 Skoolies Sponsorship


The St Edmund’s College “Skool2Skoolies” initiative was created by St Edmund’s students in 2003 to highlight the positive contributions that young people can make to their community and give back to the community that has done so much for them over the past five years of their lives.

Each year, Year 12 students from the College are given the opportunity to live out the College ethos and continue their ‘gentlemanly’ behaviour by committing themselves to raise funds for three charities which encapsulate the spirit of social justice within the Ipswich community, Australia and worldwide: The Ipswich Hospice, St Vincent de Paul, and the Christian Brothers’ Immersion Programs.

Last year, through the dedication of students and charitable donations from local Ipswich entities, we were able to raise in excess of $20,000: a donation of $7500 to each of the previously mentioned groups. These donations assisted in creating a tangible change in the work carried out by these life-altering support networks. Approximately thirty students from this year’s Skool2Skoolies ride have already begun continuing the legacy through raising funds for this worthwhile cause. As they begin to ramp up preparations: greasing their gears and getting some valuable kilometres in their legs, these young men will continue to step off their bikes and onto the streets in search of support in one of the following ways:

CHAMPION Sponsor - $1500

  • Champion sponsors have a full width name/logo printed in the most prominent locations on the event’s cycling clothing (Typically the front or rear centre of the jersey)
  • Receive a complimentary set of event clothing
  • Acknowledgement in media coverage as well as school broadcasts

Breakaway Sponsor - $1000

Breakaway sponsors have a large name/logo printed on the event clothing

(Typically on the side of the jersey or sleeves)

Peloton Sponsor - $500

Peloton sponsors have a small name/logo printed on the event clothing. (Typically upper chest, jersey pockets or high on the back)

Saddle Sponsor - $2500

This is a unique opportunity for interested businesses to become the sole sponsor of the cycling knicks (shorts) for the ride. Your business logo would feature prominently on the outside of the leg on all riders.

Any support that can be offered for this meaningful cause would be greatly appreciated.
