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.

Some other important information:

  • The school Food Hub will be open for those students wishing to purchase food on the day.
  • Students must bring sufficient food and water for the whole day.

I understand that playing sport is an opportunity for me to learn, practice skills, and gain attitudes and values in an environment outside of the school.  I realise that this requires me to take on genuine responsibility for my own enjoyment and safety and that of others.

I agree to do the following to make this happen:

  • Show courtesy and consideration to others.
  • Follow the rules and instructions of staff and other supervisors at the events.
  • Look after myself and my personal belongings.
  • Declare medical conditions that could affect participation in the events.
  • Accept the rules set by the school for the events.

I understand that my parents / caregivers will be contacted and I may be sent home at their expense if:

  • My actions are considered unacceptable by staff / supervisors of these events.
