2020 St Dominic’s School Faction Athletics Carnival Details

On Wednesday, 19th of August, St Dominic’s will hold its faction carnival at Yaluma Primary School for Pre Primary to Year 6

The event will run similar to last year, with students moving around stations in their year levels.  Last year’s carnival was a big success, and I am looking forward to more of the same this year.  Let’s hope the rain holds off for the 19th.  We will also have a DJ to entertain the students in between events.  Thank you to the P & F for kindly organising this, as well as the sausage sizzle.  Find out more about the P&F Sausage Sizzle in a previous post located here.

This year, we will have Timing Solutions providing us with gates to time student races. This means that students will run in heats, with the best times being awarded ribbons.  Interschool selection will also be based on these times.

Attached to this communication is the following:

  • A schedule of events.  You will notice this year that we have added the 200m event to the schedule.
  • A map with the layout of the carnival.
  • A program of events.  Here, students will be able to identify which heats they are running in.  For ease of organisation, students will be running against the same children for the their races.  Please remember that ribbons and Interschool selection will be based on time and not results in races.
  • A parent helper form Athletics Parent Helper Form.  Please fill this in. Many hands make light work.

I am very much looking forward to the day. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me.
