On Thursday 22 June (Week 10, Term 2) Victoria Point SHS will be
holding its annual Inter-House Athletics Carnival, taking place on site at the
VPSHS oval. It is a wonderful carnival day full of fun and excitement. All
students are expected to attend, support their House and participate in the
various athletic and novelty events.
Students are permitted to wear
house colours. Shirts MUST fully cover
the back, stomach and shoulders – suitable appropriate length shorts and
footwear included. Those students who choose not to comply with
these standards will be sent to the detention room (student centre) where they
will stay for the day OR until they change back into sport uniform.
To accommodate the inclusion of
Year 7’s, the day will begin earlier than a usual school day. All students
will be required to report to their Family Group classrooms at 8:20am to
have their attendance recorded and their ID number written on their arm. This ID number is essential when
participating in events. Teachers will then escort students down to the oval at
8:30am to be seated for the commencement of the carnival. Students are expected
to stay within the CLEARLY MARKED supervised house areas unless competing.
Plenty of water and a hat are
recommended in anticipation of the beautiful weather conditions. A SUNSCREEN STATION will also be
operational and advertised throughout the day, meaning students will have no
excuse for getting burnt and dehydrated.
The canteen will only be open for BREAKFAST from 7.45 am to 8.15 am on
this day, however
some fundraising groups will be providing food purchasing options. It is still
strongly recommended that students bring with them their own water and lunch.
Students will only be allowed to sit and eat their lunch on the oval in their
designated supervised seating area. All
other areas around the school will be out of bounds during the day.
The carnival will conclude at approximately 2:45pm.
The Champion House will be announced at the end of the day with formal
presentations to be held at the next available assembly.
