Yr 3-8 Athletics

Arrowtown School Yr 3-8 Athletics

Thursday 25th October – 2012

Events Centre

Hi all,
Our School athletics is on this Thursdasy 25th October at the Events Centre.
If postponed it will be broadcast on the local radio stations and school website by 8.00am.
Postponement day is Wed 31st October.
We have ordered some buses to take us there and bring us back but it would be helpful if you could let your child’s teacher know if you intend on taking them there and back yourselves. Can you please indicate on the form below and return to your CLASS TEACHER TOMORROW!
Buses will leave school at 9.00am and return to school by 3pm.
The cost is $4.00 for the bus if they take it. We will meet by the running track at 9.30am for a briefing of the day’s events.
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 not be allowed to purchase food or drinks from the Events centre shop. They will also need to be wearing appropriate clothing for athletics (i.e. no jeans) and have sun block and brimmed sunhats. NO SPIKES!
Parent help – As 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.
The children who make it through to the Central Otago Athletics on 7th 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 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.

Thank you
Paul Winders
Sports Co-ordinator
