With the ongoing challenges associated with Covid-19 Sports Day will look a little different this year. The first and most important difference is that we will not be having families attend on the day. We will however, be live streaming many of the events as well as creating videos for Seesaw. The second change will be the timetable of the day. The basic timetable will be Health Hustle, Tabloid events and afternoon running races for students in year 4-7. There will not be any championships race or parent/teacher event.
Over the past 2 years we have enjoyed the support of year 11 specialist PE students from Seda College, who have come to our school on a number of occasions to offer a range of sport offerings to our students -under the supervision of their teachers. This has proved a great success. Eighteen such students will be joining us on our Sports Day and offering maximum support to our early years classes in the absence of parents. This will free up teachers and ancillary staff to be able to photograph and video their students’ participation, which will be posted to Seesaw.
A more detailed timetable will be available closer to the event, providing families with live streaming times. We really appreciate the understanding and flexibilities that families have shown with these changes. Our Sports Day will be held on Monday the 16th of November.
