Students are encouraged to have a ‘sports free dress day’ wearing their sports house colours, favourite sports clothes/uniform or dress as their favourite sportsman or woman, as long as clothing and shoes are appropriate and sun safe.

 

 If you do not wish your child to leave the school grounds, please let me know in writing by Tuesday 18 April.  Spectators are encouraged to attend and cheer children on from the shaded area on the north – western and western side of the oval.
