Arrowtown School Yr 3-8 Athletics
Tuesday 28th October – 2014
Our School athletics is on this Tuesday 28th October at the Arrowtown School. We are holding it at school this year as our numbers are increasing and we need more time to get through the events. By taking off travel time to and from the Events Centre hopefully we can get through them all.
If postponed it will be posted on the school website by 8.00am.
Postponement day is Friday 31st October.
We are not going to have a lunch break so the children are going to take their bags around the stations with them and eat and drink when they feel they need to.
Please ensure your child has a large packed lunch with plenty of snacks and drink bottle for the day. They will also need to be wearing appropriate clothing for athletics (i.e. no jeans) and have sun block and brimmed sunhats. No spikes on shoes.
Parent help Please!! – Like last year we hope to allocate two or three parents to each age group to go around the events with them and help at the stations so the parents can watch their children compete. Please indicate on the form below if you can help.
We expect every child to give it their best on athletics day and a high standard of sportsmanship and behaviour is also expected.
A note is needed if there is a medical reason as to why your child can’t compete otherwise they will be expected to take part.
The children who make it through to the Central Otago Athletics on Tuesday 4tgh November in Alexandra, will be notified in the following couple of days after our athletics.
Entries to Central are limited to 2 in the field events and hurdles and 4 in the sprints events, however they also have to meet the standard as well to gain entry.
Central Otago is for under 9’s and up.
Timetable – please refer to timetable on back of this notice.
Ages are at 1st October.
Hope to see you all here on the day!
Yes / No I can / can’t help with my child’s group (circle one) on the day.
