Athletics Day 2017

This event was on Monday 30 October 2017 Western Ave Sports Grounds.

(Postponement date Wednesday 1 November 2017, check the school Facebook page if the weather is in question)

Our Year 2 - 6 school athletics event is being held at the Western Ave Sports Grounds in Omokoroa. Children may come to school as usual and will travel by bus to this event or you are welcome to take your child/ren straight to the sports ground. Everyone will need to meet outside the clubrooms at 9.00am in their class groups where the roll will be taken. This day will conclude with relays at 2.00pm. Our Year 0 & 1 children will remain at school with their class teachers for their own modified sports programme. Parents will need to contact our school office if they have children who are unwell and unable to attend this event.

After the event, you are welcome to take your child home or they will be returned to school by bus and be supervised until 3.00pm when our school buses will run at their usual time. Please indicate on the transport slip your intentions in regards to this.

Children will be competing in their year group levels and will rotate around the different athletic events.

Please ensure your child is wearing their Pahoia School Sports Shirt and suitable shorts to compete in. Every child must have a wide brimmed hat and be well protected with sunblock on this day. They will need their usual lunch, a large drink bottle and money should they wish to buy from our food stall.

Sausage Sizzle $2
Juices $1
Other small items will be available to purchase.

We are all looking forward to a fun and competitive event and invite as many families as possible to come and support their children on this day.

Please note:

If children haven't been picked up by 2.30pm, they will return to school on the bus.

Children need to be signed out if taken early, please see the pod teacher.
