Dear Parents and Caregivers,
On Friday, May 20 Golden Grove Lutheran Primary School students will participate in the annual Sports Day. Students will be involved in a range of tabloid and relay events from 9:30 am to approximately 11:45 am. We will then have a short interval before holding our annual relays, including our STAR Relay event, aiming for a finish at normal lunchtime (12:45 pm).
In order to help Sports Day run as smoothly as possible for everyone, we ask that the following be observed:
- School starts at the normal time (8:30-8:45 am) and finishes at the normal time. Should you wish to collect your child earlier, at the conclusion of sports day (approx. 12:45 pm) please fill in the form below (tabloid activities open in a new tab)
- Students come to school in sports uniform. Plain t-shirts in house colours (red, yellow or green) are allowed.
- Sneakers must be worn; hair is to be tied back and wearing a school hat is essential.
- No canteen lunch orders are available on the day. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, there will be no P & F stall this year. Please pack recess and lunch for your child/ren. Café Connect will be open for orders.
- Students must bring a drink bottle and sunblock is to be worn. Coloured zinc, coloured nail polish and/or dying of hair are permitted but must be done at home. Any coloured spray, nail polish or zinc brought to school will be confiscated.
Parent spectators and volunteers:
Please observe and adhere to the following guidelines as we continue to be guided by SA health with regard to COVID:
- Please wear a face mask on the day whilst maintaining the recommended social distancing advice of 1.5m when in the company of other people.
- If you are volunteering on the day, as guided by the collective decision of the Lutheran school sector, we remind you of the double vaccination requirement for all volunteers as this serves to protect students, staff and the wider community as we all continue to be confronted by the risks associated with COVID-19.
Doughnuts on the day
Our P & F have kindly offered to purchase one doughnut per child. These doughnuts come in house colours: Grenfell (green), Richardson (red) and Sunnybrook (yellow). There is also a colour free option (white icing) and gluten, dairy and egg-free option (cinnamon – see ingredients below).
Canteen orders can be made via the Qkr! App and over the counter sales for lunch only.
Please find below the timetables for all events.
Finally, have lots of fun! We look forward to seeing you at school on Sports Day.
