Sapsasa Athletics

The Southern Heights Track and Field Championship is this term on Thursday 28th March. Students in Yr 4 –  6 (born 2012 – 2014) will try out for 100m, 200m, long jump and high jump during the school day on Friday 8th March .  Trials for shot put and discus will happen later with students needing a signed consent form to try out for these two events.  Once trials are completed and a team selected further information and consent forms will be given to the students in the team.


For us to participate in Sapsasa events throughout the year we will need parents to assist with transport and supervision. If you would like to assist with any of our Sapsasa events this year please complete a school volunteer pack  so you have the clearances ahead of time. Volunteer information available from the front office.
