Sports Day Sprints and Sapsasa Athletics

Sports Day Sprint Run Offs

With Sports Day fast approaching on Thursday 6th April, it is time for the students to try out for the Championship Sprints and Relays which take place in the afternoon on Sports Day. This week on Thursday 2nd March students in Yr 2- 6 will run off in their year level and house teams for a place in the Sprints or Relays.

Students should wear appropriate footwear on this day. Students who are absent from school on this day will have the opportunity to run off against their peers in the coming weeks.

Students selected to run in the championship races in the afternoon of Sports Day, will receive notification of their event once results are consolidated.

Sapsasa District Athletics Carnival

On Thursday 30th March,  we will be taking a group of students to participate in the  School Sport SA Southern Heights Athletics carnival at Athletics SA Stadium.

Students in Year 5 -6 and Year 4 students born in 2013 are able to try out for events in 100m, 200m, 800m, high jump, long jump, shot put and discus. Try outs will take place during PE lessons and lunch times at school.

Parental consent is required for students to participate in shot put and discuss activities. If your child is interested in trying out for these 2 events they will need to collect a consent form from Mrs Pettman so they can participate in the tryouts. Consent forms for shot put and discus will be available for interested students from Tuesday this week.

Once tryouts and nominations are finalised students will be notified of their selection to attend the Athletics Carnival. We will require parents to assist on this day once the team is selected.
