We are all looking forward to our St James Twilight Sports this afternoon and evening.
Venue: Bill Sewart Athletics Track East Burwood
First event: 4.20pm
Catering: The food marquee will be located above the grandstand. Items include: BBQ, soft drinks and much more. Thank you to our Grade 4 Champions Katie Mills, Sarah Dowds, Desire Loy and Penny Stewart for coordinating this event.
Students wear: Sports uniform and house coloured Tshirt if they have one (if not then sports top and we can provide a house coloured sash)
If the weather is inclement, we will be attempting to complete the sports unless it becomes dangerous.
School will operate as usual in the morning.
Hopefully today's trial of the optional dismissal was successful for your family.
Please ensure that:
- all students bring along their appropriate medication, hat and drink bottle
- all students have something substantial to eat prior to the event. Taking food across the track to students during the sports can be problematic. We ask that all parents wait until after the sports to give your children a sausage or another snack.
