Korakonui School - Small enough to care yet big enough to challenge and inspire

School Athletics Day Notice

Our Kōrakonui School Athletics Day is scheduled for Tuesday 7th November on the school field. The Te Kawa and Mangatutu athletic display will run from 9.10am to approximately 9.50am. The 5 & 6 year olds will then return to class. The competitive athletics (7 year olds & above including the 7 & 8 year olds from Mangatutu Hub) will start after the completion of the junior display. The age group events will include: distance run, long jump, high jump, discus, shot put and sprints.

Please ensure that your child/ren have the following items on the day:

● Sunhat

● Sunscreen

● House t-shirt or house colours (no singlets)

● Water bottle

● Sweatshirt

● Healthy morning tea and lunch to keep energy levels up

Sausages ($2), ice blocks ($1) and beef burgers ($5) will be available for sale throughout the day.

In order for us to be able to run all of the events on the Tuesday, we need some parent assistance. Please email (brittany@korakonui.school.nz) or drop in and see Brittany if you are able to help with an event. Please also let Brittany know if you are able to help run the BBQ and sell items.

The Lower Waipa Schools inter-school athletics is Friday 10th November, at the Te Awamutu Stadium in Armstrong Ave for those students aged 8-13 years chosen to represent Korakonui School.

*We have minimum requirements for each event therefore placings in a school event does not automatically mean that students will be attending the Lower Waipa Athletics Sports.

**It will be a fast turnaround to get organised for this event so please ensure when the google form is sent out on the Wednesday, it is filled in ASAP (preferably by that evening).
