Kids Games

Tuesday 1st July Frankton Events Centre

Hi all,
The Kids Games are on tomorrow.
The forecast looks very cold so make sure your kids wrap up warm and bring a jacket. If postponed they will let the school know by 8.00am and we will put on the school website.
Buses leave school at 9.00am and will return by 2.30pm.
Please check with your child about what country they are for the day and wear appropriate colours. They can have face paint if the wish. They will also need clothes to be active in. Thermals underneath could be a good option.
Make sure they pack plenty of lunch and a drink bottle.
We still need a couple more parents who can help with teams so please let me know if you can help.
Feel free to come along during the day and see how they are doing.
