Athletics Carnival Approaching!

Mr De Antoni and a small band of very helpful parents oversaw the first 19 events of our Faction Carnival on Monday. While the weather was a little chilly at times, we were able to get through the scheduled events before any rain arrived, with Pegasus opening up a handy points advantage from Centaur, Apollo and Thor going into our main day of competition this Friday 18 September. With the loss of our Year 7 students to high school, the main carnival will run slightly differently this year. Students in Years 1 – 3 will be competing in their events from 9am up until Recess, with our Year 4 – 6 students coming out for their events after recess. Students in Year 1 – 3 will return to their classrooms with their teachers after recess and re-join the seniors for presentations around 2.30pm. The decision to separate the two groups of students has been made to increase participation and reduce the amount of time children spend unoccupied in the bays. Students will remain under the supervision of school staff throughout the day and will not be “signed out” of school unless they are leaving the school grounds under direct parental supervision.

As the weather is forecast to be a warm one, please remember to supply your child with a sun-safe hat, bottle of water and suncream.

We look forward to seeing you all there!
