This year we are not running the whole school house assembly sign-ups that we have in the past. We will be signing up year 7 students for events during their PE classes (and on the day of the carnivals). All other year levels can simply sign-up for events on the day. The events are the same as last year:


Swimming carnival - 50m freestyle, 50m butterfly, 50m backstroke, 50m breaststroke, 4x50m freestyle relay. There are also fun/novelty events in the kids pool (shallow water) and volleyball for those who don't want to swim, but still would like to represent their house.


Athletics carnival - 100m, 200m, 400m, 1500m, 4x100m relay, discus, shotput, javelin, long jump, high jump and triple jump.


For those new to the school, events are not done by year level, they are done by age group. The age groups are:

2004-2005 born    (12-13 year olds)

2003 born       (14 year olds)

2002 born       (15 year olds)

2001 born       (16 year olds)

2000 born       (17 year olds)

1997-1999 born    (18-20 year olds)


Students are sorted into houses by surname. The house are:

Gold: A-D

Green: E-K

Blue: L-R

Red: S-Z

So a student (or staff member) with the name John Smith would be in Red house.


Permission and payments are due on Friday!!!!!
