Athletics Carnival (K-12)
May 17 @ 8:30 am - 2:45 pm
Our annual school Athletics Carnival is on next Friday, 17 May, from 8:30am until 2:45pm at Northparkes Oval. All students from K-12 must attend the carnival. The actual carnival will not begin until around 9:15am, after the buses drop students at the oval, however staff will be there from 8:30am.
Our regular school buses will pick up students from Parkes High School and drop them at the oval in the morning. The buses will then pick up students from the oval at 2:45pm in order to transport them to Parkes Public School for the regular afternoon bus run.
Parents are welcome to drop off their children in the morning and pick them up in the afternoon but are also most welcome to attend the carnival as spectators.
Students must bring the following:
Hat, sunscreen, water, food and/or money for the canteen
Appropriate shoes for athletics. Running spikes may be worn during events only.
Students are reminded to dress in their house colours and be supportive of all students on the day. Students will receive house points for competing in events, placing in events, cheering and showing house spirit, and helping staff run events.
Parent helpers are most welcome, please come and see Mr Ballantyne on the day.
