  • Due to privacy matters, there is to be NO PHOTOGRAPHY of any sort at the athletics track.
  • Officials will be wearing brightly coloured orange vests.  If a parent / teacher is asked to be an official on the day they will need to wear the orange vest as this helps with identification of the officials.
  • ONLY officials and competitors are permitted out on the track or field.
  • St John’s ambulance will be there on the day to attend to any injuries.  If a child attends this service, St John’s will write up a full report of the incident.

Parent Helpers: 

We would very much appreciate the assistance of some parents on the day so that we can keep our groups to a workable size.  If you would like to help and have a valid “Working with Children Check” certification, which has been registered in CareMonkey,  and you have been through the St Peter’s Volunteer Interview process, please indicate accordingly below and your child’s teacher will contact you. Due to the responsibility involved in supervising a small group of children, you will not be able to bring along pre schoolers.

Parents assisting with this excursion will be required to attend a compulsory briefing session on Monday 5th August at 8.30am in the Performing Arts Theatre.
