Whole School Athletics Day 2020

Whole Kura Athletics Day - Friday 30th October

(Postponement Date: Tuesday 3rd November)

Our whole kura athletics day provides an opportunity for our tamariki to participate in an athletics event. Our PE focus in the lessons leading up to this event is on the movement skills required to participate safely and to the best of our ability. The focus of the event is on fun and inclusion. Years 0 to 4 will be participating in a range of games that develop the fundamental movement skills of run, jump and throw, while the year 5 to 8 children will be participating in more traditional track and field events. 

This event will go ahead as planned if we are at Alert Level 1. If we are at Alert Level 2, Years 5 - 8 will compete without spectators and events for Years 0 - 4 will be postponed to a time when we are in Level 1.

On the day

Children may wear their house top or their red polo shirt. Children should also wear shoes and clothes that will be suitable for running and jumping, (running shoes and shorts/leggings are ideal). Please ensure that your child has their sun hat and water bottle at school.

The Year 5 - 8 athletics run all day long, starting with the optional mid distance event and followed by track and field rotations. Sprint finals conclude the day. To help with the running of these rotations, we are looking for adult volunteers to work alongside a teacher at our track and field stations. If you are keen to help and available, please email Jenny Diggle (

We welcome spectators in Level one, but please leave dogs at home. There will be an adult team in the house relay so wear your running shoes if you would like to join in on this!

Below is the outline of the programme for the day.
