TERM 4 (2020)

Competitive Athletics Day - Year 4 - 6

Our Competitive Athletics for years 4 - 6 students will be on Thursday 29th October 8.45am - 2.30pm, with the Sprint Finals and 800m races being run the following day on Friday 30th October 8.45am until completed.

This is not compulsory and any students who would like to enter any events will sign up via their Guardian Teachers, as they are currently practicing athletics during PE times at school.

Our top Year 5 & 6 competitors will go on to represent GSS at Mt Cluster Athletics on Wed 11th Nov (only for year 5 & 6 students)

I would really love to have some parents to help me out.  If you are available either day, please can you let me know by email:  sport@goldensands.school.nz

We will also have a Fun Athletics day for the whole school later in the term.
