The school will be holding its annual sports day on Tuesday 23rd February 2021. This is a fun day for all students to participate in athletics events involving running, throwing and jumping. Students are encouraged to enter at least four events to help earn points for their school house.
The postponement date is Thursday 25th February 2021. This will be advertised via Classic Hits (98.8FM) at 7.00am, 7.30am and 8.00am, as well as our school Facebook page, Instagram and the School Stream App.
This is a normal school day, and all students are expected to be at school. In addition to the events running, students will also participate in both the house chant and best dressed house competition where students are asked to come dressed in their house colours to show their support.
Please note face paint is NOT permitted at school and is to be applied before arriving for the day. It must also be removed by those students who travel by bus before leaving at the end of the day.
