Athletics Carnival Day
Pre-primary and Kindy
Our Kindy families who do not attend on a Friday are very welcome to come along and join in the fun.
Hair and accessories
Food and drink
A coffee van will be on site for the grown-ups.
Students are encouraged to sit with their family during our designated lunch break (approximately 12.15pm).
In line with our Healthy Food and Drink Policy, we do not encourage students to bring lollies and/or energy drinks such as Powerade to the carnival. Such items may be kept by staff until the end of the carnival.
It is a good idea for students to bring healthy snacks for consumption throughout the day, even if they are getting a sausage sizzle.
- We warmly welcome you to be part of one of the best days in our school calendar. This is a good opportunity to show your support for your family's house by wearing house colours - they may even be a spot prize for the best dressed parent!
- Just before lunch we will be holding Staff vs Community vs Year 6 events - passball and tunnelball. Please register your interest with Erica Salt as soon as possible - first come, first served!
- If you are available to assist with part or all of the day, please do let Erica know. Past feedback from parents has shown that being involved in this way really adds to the greatness of the day. It also helps everything run more smoothly so that we can make this a great day for the children.
- Unless you are volunteering, we respectfully ask that all families please stay in the designated areas during the carnival. Please do not go into the house bays or ask your child to come to you. This just helps the day run smoothly.
Set up and pack down - volunteers needed
Anyone who is able to assist with the packing down of equipment at the end of the carnival will be gratefully received.
