Athletics Day 2019 Information for Parents/Carers

Helpful Reminders

Firstly we would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who is able to take the time to come down and create such a supportive atmosphere for our tamariki at these events.
  • Sun Safety - We provide sunscreen for children throughout the day, however, should your child require a specific sunscreen due to allergies or skin sensitivity please send this with your child for athletics day. Please also ensure your child has their hat and ideally is wearing a t-shirt with sleeves rather than a singlet.
  • Photography - Please be mindful when sharing photos online that you may also be sharing another child’s image taking part in the same event as your child.
  • Timings for the day - We aim to run as close to time as possible. You can find information about timings for the days on our Sports website.
  • Race Etiquette - Race spotters need to be able to see up the track and the finish line clearly. Please check that you are not blocking this area whilst cheering on your child.
  • Trainers / Bare feet - Children may choose to participate in bare feet however they must be wearing trainers for shot put and discus.
  • Water Bottles - Please ensure you send your child with a bottle of water. Athletics is thirsty work!
Thank you in advance for helping our day to run as smoothly as possible. We look forward to seeing you there.
