Dear Parents

The 2020 School ATHLETICS CARNIVAL will be held on Friday 31 July at the Academy of Sport, Wakehurst Parkway, Narrabeen
(Week 2 Term 3).

ALL children will be required to travel to the venue by bus with the whole school. The bus will leave school at 9.15am and return at 2.30pm.

Should you wish to take your child home at the conclusion of the carnival (expected time is 2pm) please indicate on the Google form below. This will be a kiss n’ ride process at the Academy of Sport, Narrabeen (similar to our school process). If you attend to pick up your child please arrive at 1:45pm sharp for pick up. The buses will be leaving at 2pm sharp with all remaining students returning to school (including students who have not been picked up).

This years carnival will run differently due to Covid 19 restrictions. The usual follow up cluster and Diocesan representative carnivals have already been cancelled as per NSW regulations. Therefore our carnival will take the form of a fun sporting event, an opportunity for all children to actively participate.

PARENTS ARE NOT ABLE TO ATTEND AS A SPECTATOR OR OFFICIAL VOLUNTEER.
This is unfortunate but is in adherence to NSW and CSO restrictions currently in place.

All students will participate in a variety of running, relays, modified field events as well as novelty events.

5, 6, 7 YEAR OLDS: will compete in the track in the 70m and 100m

8, 9, 10, 11, 12 YEAR OLDS:
100m – run in separate age groups and gender
200m and 800m – run as Junior (under 8, 9 and 10’s); 11 years and 12 years

FIELD EVENTS: TBC. Based on time and in alignment with restrictions. Please note field events are grouped into Junior (under 8, 9 and 10’s); 11 years and 12 Years.

PERMISSION:  Please submit the Google form no later than WEDNESDAY 29 July, 2020 (Week 2 Term 3).  Please complete and submit individual forms for each child
