Our Athletics Carnival is set for tomorrow, Tuesday 20th August at Ken Harrison Reserve. Students have already nominated for events, our Year 7 and 8’s are hard at practice in PE classes and everyone is looking forward to a fun and competitive day.

It would be terrific to see many family members come along to support the students and add to our carnival atmosphere. Events begin at 10am and should conclude by 2.30pm at the latest. Field events are completed on a rotation system with each age group competing in javelin, discus, shot put, high jump, long jump and triple jump.

The events schedule is as follows:
100m events: Begin at 10am
1500m events: Begin at 10.30am
200m events: Begin at 11.20am
800m events: Begin at 11.35am
400m events: Begin at 12.05pm
4 x 100 relays: Begin at 1.45pm

A reminder to everyone that the Athletics Carnival is a compulsory school day.

There will be a canteen available although students are encouraged to bring a healthy lunch and water bottle. Appropriate clothing to compete should be worn, ideally in house colours, along with a hat. A rug to sit on is also an excellent idea as the ground is often still quite cold.
