Parents and carers are invited to attend our annual Sports Day, a very important day on the school calendar, to show their support and celebrate with us this whole school event.

Sports Day commences at 7:30am and the Opening Ceremony will occur at approximately 9:00am when the year 12 house captains carry the ‘Olympic Flame’ and light the cauldron to officially begin events.
For safety reasons, parents are asked not to bring vehicles into the school grounds and should park in the area available near the roundabout, west of the school gymnasium. Sports Day is not an appropriate occasion for acquaintances or friends of students to visit the school and they will be asked to leave.
Parents are reminded that all Education Department schools are smoke free zones.
All students are required to attend Sports Day, even if they are not participating in any events. Students should be at school joining in the activities or acting as an official. Parental support is requested in this matter. As a safety measure, roll calls will be made throughout the day.
As per the usual process, parents are requested to notify the school on the day if their child is absent on Sports Day. A signed note in the diary is required upon return to the school.
For reasons of modesty and protection from the sun, students should wear clothing that adequately covers the body. Students should wear a hat and have sunscreen protection. Clothing should be appropriate for a school environment and therefore offensive slogans or logos or large areas of bare skin are not permitted. Students should also ensure they have clothing which does not restrict their performance in events. Students are encouraged to wear clothing (shirt/blouse/athletic singlet/shorts) in their house colour.
The early start and early finish to the day may present issues for some families. Please assist us to manage this by informing the Home Group teacher, via a note in the diary prior to the day, if you child;
