Dear Parents/Caregivers


We invite all parents to attend our annual athletics day at Porritt Stadium, on Crosby Road, Wednesday 25th  February.  Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day.


  • RegistrationStudents are to make their own way to Porritt Stadium and report to their tutor group teacher in their House area by 8.30am. The first events commence at 8.50am.
  • Buses: Where possible school buses will be re-routed to Porritt Stadium and will pick them up outside Porritt Stadium at the conclusion of the event between 2.30-3:00pm.  Students who do end up at school will need to catch the anti-clockwise Orbiter bus to the Crosby Road stop and walk to the Stadium from there.
  • Bikes: will be kept in a secure area and be supervised by staff throughout the day.
  • Uniform:  Full school uniform or official House or PE shirts with PE shorts is to be worn to and from Porritt Stadium.  While participating in the events, PE uniform or House T shirts must be worn.  Running shoes are recommended to be worn on the track (to avoid receiving blisters).

The day offers all boys the opportunity to compete at a level that challenges them personally, and also earn points for their ‘House’ in a strongly contested House Competition.  It is also a day to identify our elite athletes and for students of all abilities to compete in at least one jumping, throwing and sprint event, as well as relays.
  • Expectations:  If students are absent due to sickness parents must provide a note in the School Diary to the Tutor Teacher on the next school day of attendance.
  • Finishing Time:  The day will finish at approx. 2:45pm when students will be released.  Parents are requested not to seek early release for their sons, except in the case of emergencies.
  • Sun:  Please ensure your son has protection from the sun in the form of sunblock, a hat, sunglasses and clothing to cover up.
  • Food:  A canteen is available to buy lunch and drinks but you will need cash – No EFTPOS available
  • Weather:  If the weather is doubtful, please check the school website under school notices at 7:00am for cancellation.  We will also send an email via school links.
