Years 3-6 students will be participating in our House Athletics Carnival. It will take place over 2 days:


Day 1 – Field events on Thursday 5th September at school. The 9 and 10 yrs children will begin at 11:30 a.m. and finish at 1:00 p.m., while the 11 and 12/13 yrs children will begin at 2:00 p.m. and finish 3:30 p.m. All children will have an earlier lunch at 1:00 p.m. and will be dismissed from school at normal time at 3:30 p.m.


Day 2 – Track events (plus Triple Jump) on Friday 6th September at the No7 Oval near Frontline. The children will be walking from school at 12:45 p.m. to begin at 1:00 p.m. All children will have their lunch before they go and will be dismissed at the No. 7 oval at 3:30 p.m. Because the children will be leaving the school grounds for this day, they will need to return the permission slip that has been sent home.


The aim of the 2 days is for all students to participate and have a go. We will also be selecting students to represent our school at the Seymour District Carnival to be held on Monday 11th September. The District event only involves Years 3-6 students. They will be selected according to their efforts, placings and techniques performed at next week’s school carnival. For example, we cannot send someone to District for shot put if their technique isn’t officially ‘legal’, even if they throw the furthest.


In each event students can tally points for their House teams. Just competing will score points for their House team. It is imperative for their teams that all students have a go. Parents are also welcome to come along and cheer loudly! Children have been encouraged to wear their house colours - red, blue, green or yellow.


Please complete the permission slip that has been sent home and return it to school as soon as possible as it is needed for students to participate on Day 2. Also indicate if your child is one of those few children who will need transport back to school immediately after the carnival to catch the bus or attend Out of School Hours Care. There is a $4 cost to cover the cost of running the 2 day event. We are also looking for parent helpers for the carnival. If you can help, please contact Kevin Warne.


Good luck, Athletes!
