Sports Day – Thursday 20th June 2019
I am delighted to inform you that our Sports Day will be held at the K2 Leisure Centre on Thursday 20th June from 8.10am – 2.40pm.
We would ask that your son/daughter make their own way to K2 Leisure Centre, arriving at the time below in accordance to their year group, instead of coming to school that day. Please note that parking is limited at K2, so if you intend to drop off/pick up by car there could be some congestion; please be patient and allow sufficient time.
During the day, students will be required to stay in the Arena, participating and supporting their Learning Community. First Aid, toilet facilities and the Tuck Shop are all within the Arena, so please support us by reinforcing to your son/daughter that they are not permitted to be in any other area of the K2 facility, particularly in the main foyer.
In order that students do not arrive all together, and can be registered accurately, we would propose that students arrive at the following times in accordance to their year group.
Year 7: 8.10am
Year 8: 8:20am
Year 9: 8.30am
Year 10: 8:40am
If your son/daughter usually receives a free school meal, then a packed lunch will be available for collection at lunch time within the Arena. These lunches must be pre-ordered, so students need to collect an order form from Reception, and return it to Reception by the end of day on Tuesday 18th June 2019.
Students will need the following with them on the day:-
- Full PE kit for all students, whether competing or not.
- A packed lunch and plenty of fluids for the day.
- A sunhat and sun cream (or waterproofs, weather dependant).
- A little spending money if you wish your child to use the tuck shop provided. Water will be freely available.
Students and parents must use the side entrance of the track and not go through the main building.
Parent/Carers are most welcome to come along for all, or part of the day. Your son/daughter will be given a programme with the approximate event timings nearer the day. Please be aware that these are only approximate times, and that events could run a little ahead or behind schedule; we would advise you to arrive with plenty of time to spare to avoid the disappointment of missing your son/daughter’s event. There will be a viewing space assigned for you, but I would ask that your son/daughter sit with their Learning Community during the events to allow us to easily call them for races or events, and also so they can cheer on their Learning Community.
