Sports Day Information 2019

Dear Parents,

It’s almost time for our annual Sports Day event. As you know, we are planning for it to take place on Friday 7th June at 1:00 pm. Hopefully this lovely weather will continue however, the event will take place weather permitting.

Following discussions with parents at ‘Coffee & Catch Up’ the afternoon will be split across the key stages. The first half (starting at 1pm) will be for Foundation Phase followed by KS2 for the second half at 2:15pm

Our school gates will be open at 12:45 pm. Please enter by the field gates not the school gates. The field gates are half way down along the edge of the field.

You are welcome to bring your own chairs or blankets to make it more comfortable. There will be a coned area set aside for parents and family members to view the events from. We would appreciate it if you keep to this area to ensure the smooth running of the events planned.

Please send the children dressed in their PE kits and tracksuits for the day’s activities. We encourage the children to wear t-shirts of their house colours. They will need water bottles, sun hats and plenty of sun cream that should be applied the morning before they arrive at school.

As well as the competitive element, Sports Day is a great opportunity for a whole school event that allows us to focus on growth mind-set and the importance of participation. Taking part, having a go and trying your best is just as important as winning. We thank you for your support in cheering and clapping for everyone who is having a go and participating in the experience.

We are pleased to tell you that the Friends of St. Gabriel’s will be once again running a barbeque and providing refreshments throughout the afternoon for the parents. Children will have the opportunity to share this with you, if you so wish, at the end of the day.

We look forward to seeing you.

Thank you for your support.
