Hello Parents,

Next Tuesday, April 17th is our Track and Field Day. It is different from second grade so please see the information and details below:

Tuesday, April 17th will be our Annual Grade 3-5 Track, Field and Swim Day.  This is an all day House Colour event, which will take place at the ISB Stadium and pool. The opening ceremony will begin at 8:30am with events commencing at 8.45am and conclude in time for the end of the school day.  We encourage all parents and family members to come and cheer on your child in what is sure to be an action packed, fun-filled day. 

 What to Bring 

All students should bring the following items: 

  • Swim suit, goggles and cap (if required) 
  • Towel 
  • House colour t-shirt 
  • Comfortable running shorts (example; PE shorts) 
  • Comfortable running shoes 
  • A hat  
  • Water bottle  
  • Sun Screen: apply at home before coming to school (except Grade 4- apply after your morning pool events)

Students will sign up in their homeroom class for their picnic lunch if they wish.  Students who bring their own lunch from home must make sure nothing needs to be heated in a microwave and there will be no hot water available. The PTA have kindly provided us with a popsicle for each student. 

 We will also be in need of parents to help give out ribbons at the finish line during track events.   

Announcements will be made to come down and help.  

 If the AQI is above 150 at 7:30am on the day we will reschedule to Thursday, April 19th. If it is above 150 AQI on the rescheduled day it will unfortunately be cancelled.   


We hope to see everyone there! Go Dragons! 

Thank you,
