Dear Parents,

On Tuesday 1 May 2018, Grade 3 – 6 students will be involved in the House Cross Country Competition at Nettleton Reserve, Glen Iris.

All students are expected to be involved, and if necessary, can enjoy the run or mix it with a power walk. The emphasis is on participation while being involved in a fit and healthy activity. Please encourage your child’s participation.

The students finishing in the top 10 places may have the opportunity to go onto the District Competition if they can run the circuit adequately. Please note that age groups are based on what age students are as of 31st December 2018 and not their current age.

All students will be leaving school at 9am and walking to Nettleton Reserve. Students will return for lunchtime. All students are requested to bring their belongings in a labelled bag which they will be responsible for looking after and carrying to and from the event.

Children need to have:

appropriate shoes, shorts, t-shirt , track pants and windcheater drink bottle/s

had a big breakfast before school a healthy snack with minimal waste

any medication/s (e.g. puffer) a plastic bag to bring a snack and sit on if the ground is wet

□ sunscreen & hat

Children are encouraged to wear their HOUSE team colours. NO face paint or dyed hair please.

There will be no payment required for this event.

Parental/Guardian Consent is required. Please provide online consent for this event by logging into Compass.

As with all school events, we need parental help. Some of the jobs needed are: setting up before the event, scorekeepers, place judges and track marshals. We require at least 25 parent helpers for this day to be a success!

If you are able to assist on the day of the event please log on to Compass and respond via Insights.

Parent Assistance - Please note that a current Working with Children Check is required when volunteering to help.

Please complete the permission form by Friday 27 April at the latest.
