Primary School Athletics Carnival

Friday, 7 June 2024

Date: Friday 7 June 2024
Time: 8.50am until 3.15pm
Location: SCAS front oval

Participants: Year 3-6 students, and Year 2 students who turn 8 in 2024 and are interested in representing SCAS at the HRIS Primary Athletics Carnival.

Event Program and Timeline

The SCAS Primary School Athletics Carnival is compulsory for all students in Years 3-6 and serves as a selection event for the Hunter Region Independent Schools (HRIS) Primary Athletics Carnival, which will be held on Friday, 16 August 2024. Students who place first and second in their age group for each Track and Field event may be selected for the SCAS team to attend the HRIS Carnival. We request that students notify Mrs Johnson or Mr Barrett as early as possible if they do not wish to be eligible for selection in the SCAS team to attend the HRIS Carnival.

Event Day Procedures

The Carnival will commence with the 800m events from 8.15am. This is not a compulsory event although any students wishing to participate should meet Mr Barratt on the Front Oval at 7.50am.

At 8.50am sharp, all students will be required to meet their classroom teacher at their classroom to complete roll call. Students will then be accompanied to the Front Oval and placed into their age groups which they will stay with for the duration of the Carnival. 

Students will move to each event in their respective age groups on a rotational basis (see the Event Program and Timeline hyperlink for more information). All students will reassemble in House groups for the relays at the conclusion of the Carnival.

The Athletics Carnival is scheduled to finish at 3.15pm which will enable students to travel home as per their normal school day arrangements. We would discourage early departures prior to this time, and any student who does need to depart early will need to be signed out by a parent or caregiver at the School Front Reception. Please allow time (up to 15 minutes) for us to be able to locate your child if signing out early.
