2020 St Dominic’s Sporting Events Update

The following communication details the scheduled sporting events for Term 3, 2020 as well as information regarding some events that have been rescheduled in Term 4.

Due to COVID-19, our school Cross Country was forced to be postponed.  The reason for not being able to run the Cross Country was due to the fact that it is held off site at Birralee Reserve.  Being off site lead to concerns relating to the use of a public space and public toilets during the Covid-19 pandemic.  With COVID-19 restrictions lifting, we are now happy to notify you that the Cross Country Carnival has been re-scheduled for early in Term 3.

Below are key dates to add to the St Dominic’s Sporting Calendar:

  • Friday, 7th August (Week 3) – St Dominic’s Cross Country Carnival at Birralee Reserve
  • Wednesday, 19th August (Week 5) – St Dominic’s Athletics Carnival at Yaluma Primary
  • Thursday, 24th September (Week 10) – Interschool Athletics Carnival at WA Athletics Stadium

After meeting with my sports teacher colleagues from our interschool partners, we are working towards re-scheduling other events.  The Interschool Cross Country Carnival has been tentatively booked in for Friday, 30th October (Week 3, Term 4).  The Year 5/6 Interschool Cricket and Tennis Carnival may be rescheduled to Term 4.  Unfortunately, the decision has been made to cancel the Year 5/6 Interschool Winter Sports Carnival, as well as the Interschool Swimming Carnival in 2020.

Please find below a Cross Country Training Schedule that students may wish to follow in the lead up to the Cross Country Carnival.

Please feel free to get in contact with me should you require any clarification.
