Events And Excursions

Athletics Carnival 2018


Gowrie Oval 9:30am – 3:00pm


All children from Kinder to Year 6 will be participating in events throughout the day. All will compete in track events as well as ball games and/or novelties. No nominations are required. Children simply line up as their event is called. All children should compete in at least one of the sprint races. The Preschool will be joining us in the morning for their 70m races.


Children are to come to school as usual. After the morning assembly, the roll will be marked and the children’s labels given out. They will then walk over to Gowrie Oval with their teachers.

What to Wear

Children will need to wear their full sports uniform (including their school hat). Children are encouraged to wear a top in the colour of their House (no singlets unless worn over the top of their sleeved school sport shirts).

What to Bring

Children need to bring with them their school hat, sunscreen, tracksuit, drinks, snacks and any asthma medication if applicable.  There will be a Fun Food Day lunch order system operating for lunch. Preordering on Flexischools is the ONLY option for lunch orders on the day. (Closing day Friday April 13 at 1pm). The Canteen will also be selling a limited range of snack food during the day.

Order of Events

A copy of the program will be posted on our new school website as well as out via the Skoolbag app.


The carnival is due to finish at 3pm. Parents are most welcome to take their children home straight after the carnival after first seeing their child’s class teacher. All remaining children will be walked back to school for their normal dismissal procedures. Children may not leave with anyone other than their own parents, unless we have written notification.


There are many, many jobs that need to be filled in order for the day to run smoothly. No experience is needed but you must have your current WWVP card on your person.  If you can help, it would be great to have your offer of help before the end of term so that jobs can be sorted out and confirmations sent out Day 1 of Term 2.
