May 20 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm
Our annual school Athletics Carnival has been moved to our back up date due to wet grounds…, our back up date for the carnival is Friday Week 4, the 20th of May
The carnival will be held from 8:30am until 2:30pm. 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.
1500m competitors: All students who want to compete in the 1500m will need to be on the oval at 7:50am sharp!
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 2:30pm 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.
– warm clothes as it can be quite cool at the oval
– Students are reminded to dress in their house colours and be supportive of all students on the day.
Team Endurance – Blue
Team Discovery – Yellow
Team Endeavour – Red
Students will receive house points for competing in events, placing in events, cheering and showing house spirit, and helping staff run events. These points count towards the overall House Cup, not the carnival result.
A Google Form was sent out for food orders from the canteen and was due in by Monday 9th May. Some food will be available on the day, but most orders will have to be done and paid for by Monday 9th May.
Canteen: There will be a canteen on the day. Prices range from $0.50-$4. Eftpos available (minimum charge $5).
Icicle bicycle: The SRC will be bringing down the icicle bicycle to the oval, where they will be selling ice blocks. Prices range from $0.50-$2.
