School Cross Country Tomorrow

Mon Aug 15 05:32am

Tomorrow, Tuesday 16th August, is our school cross country. This will be held at the Huapai Domain. Children will all come to school at the normal time. They will wear House coloured mufti with sneakers. Footwear is compulsory for all races. Please consider packing a mat / tarp for your child to sit on at the domain.


Our year 5-8 students will all walk down as a group with their teachers shortly after the roll is taken at 9am. Our year 0-4 students will all walk down as a group with their teachers at approximately 10:30am to watch the end of the senior races before starting their own.


 We are keen to have as many families as possible at the domain to support and cheer positively for the runners. You are most welcome to walk down with your child’s class from school. Please speak with your child’s teacher. Alternatively, you may wish to meet us there after bringing your child to school.


After your child’s race, they will be able to receive a sausage from the sausage sizzle. If your child has special dietary
requirements, please consider providing a sausage for us to cook. This should be given to your child’s teacher in a marked
container.


Please see attached for our cross country maps and information.

DISCO DETAILS. Tomorrow (Thursday 7th July) our HFN is hosting a Huapai District School disco. Years 1-4 5:30-7pm then Years 5-8 7:30-9pm

Tickets are $5 at the door of the hall.  There will be a black light, so anything white will glow.  Glow-in-the-dark items will be on sale as well as chips, lollies, drinks and icepops.  


Please note, students will need to be collected from the hall at the end of the disco. Some parents choose to stay and boogie, most don’t but it’s over to you. We generally turn all the lights on at the end, have the students gather and then they are released by staff to parents who are waiting outside the hall.

Thank you to our HFN for all your hard work with this initiative for our children!
