The SCAS Secondary Athletics Carnival is compulsory for all students in Years 7 to 12 and serves as a selection event for the Hunter Region Independent Schools (HRIS) Athletics Carnival which will be held on Friday 28 July 2023. 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 Offereins 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
Students are to assemble in the Iona Sports Stadium in their respective House groups from 8.30am to 8.50am, and a roll call will take place at 8.50am.
The first event will commence at 9.10am following a Carnival briefing at 9.00am.
Students will move to each event in their respective age groups on a rotational basis. 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/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.

Please ensure that your child(ren) have the following items (with names clearly marked):

- Sunscreen (coloured zinc is allowed for the face only);
- Good food for the day (or a canteen order – please pre-order if your child will be purchasing food from the canteen);

The School Canteen will also be available for lunches as normal, although pre-orders are requested to minimise waiting times.
