On Thursday 24 March,
Victoria Point SHS will be holding its annual Inter-House Cross Country Carnival in and around the school grounds.
This year’s carnival is promising to be bigger and better than ever, as the day’s
proceedings will include our third annual MINI
GAMES CARNIVAL EVENT to be held prior to Cross Country in the afternoon.
Students will have an opportunity to ‘try their hand’ at a variety of sport
related mini activities within an Ekka-like atmosphere (all for house points). Mini-games
carnival activities this year include wheel chair basketball and indigenous
games as well as many other fun sport-related games and challenges.
All students are expected to
attend to support their House and participate in the variety of events offered
on the day. The appropriate procedures (school contact, forwarding of medical
certificates etc.) should be followed if your student is absent on this school
Students will attend Family Group
and Period 1 classes as per their normal Thursday timetable. The Mini Games Carnival will be held between Morning Tea and Lunch
(altered bell times), with students to
meet at normal Thursday timetabled Period 2 classes at the altered time of
10:35am for Mini Games carnival preparation. Cross Country to follow after Lunch (12:55pm).
The school canteen is available during
Morning Tea and Lunch, as per any other school day. However, students are also
encouraged to bring their own food and drink (preferably water) as well. As there is only limited shade at the venue,
we strongly encourage students to bring their hat and sunscreen.
Students are permitted to wear
house colours. However, students
will be required to travel to school in their FULL SPORT UNIFORM. Once at school, they will be able to change into APPROPRIATE clothing
(MUST fully cover the back, stomach and shoulders – suitable shorts and
footwear included). Male and female running
clothing MUST be appropriate. Students
risk being excluded from carnival proceedings if they do not meet these dress
Those students who
choose not to comply with these standards risk exclusion from the carnival with possible follow up
consequences. Poor behaviour and wilful property damage/vandalism occurring at
school and outside the grounds will also be dealt with severely.
