Please note:

  • The morning roll call will be taken on arrival at the venue
  • Expensive items are to be left at home.
  • Students will have very limited access to their bags during the day.
  • Wallets and mobile phones can be stored in a secure area.
  • Students will return to the College by bus at the end of the day


  • Students may make their way directly home from the venue at the discretion of their parents.

The event is held on a school day and is compulsory for all students in Years 7 to 12.

The day is an excellent opportunity for the students to display their talent in order to gain selection in the College Athletics Team and to promote House spirit through points awarded for participation in events and the House Chant off competition.

The emphasis of the day is participation and every student is expected to participate in all events. Students will compete in their age category in 2016, i.e. if a student turns 15 years of age in 2016, he will compete in the 15 years age group.

It is strongly recommended that students wear the College cap and boys must provide their own sunscreen.

Canteen facilities will be available at the venue but due to inflated prices it is strongly recommended that students take with them a packed lunch including a drink.

In the event of rain, students will come to school in their College tracksuit, but are also to bring books for normal lessons (Day D). The wet weather phone number is 8250 3780. This information will also be available on the Skoolbag app.

We are sure the day will be enjoyable for all. Parents are most welcome to attend.
