Sports Days for Harris South Norwood 2012
SPORTS DAYS 2012
Our annual year group Sports Days will take place next week at Croydon Arena (Albert Road, South Norwood, SE25 4QL).
The Sports Days will run as follows:
- Monday 18th June – Year 7 & 8 & 9 (09:00 start and approximately 2:30 finish)
Due to the nature of the day, your son/daughter will need to meet us at the Arena at 8:30am, with registration taking place at 8:45am. Students will be dismissed from Croydon Arena at the end of the Sports Day. Should you wish your son/daughter to be escorted by a member of staff to and/or from the Arena, please ensure that he/she is at the Academy by 8.15am at the very latest and that they wait behind at the end of the day to return to the Academy. Please note that the walk to the Arena takes about 15 minutes. Please write a note in their planner to say that you would like them to return to the Academy.
- Thursday 21st June – Year 10 (11:00 start and approximately 14:00 finish)
Your son/daughter will need to make their own way to the Arena, with registration taking place at 10.45am. Students will be dismissed from Croydon Arena at the end of the Sports Day.
On the day, students will have to bring a packed lunch, a water bottle and sun cream. Please also ensure that your sun/daughter has an umbrella and/or waterproof clothing in case of poor weather. Please note, that in case of extremely bad weather, students will be dismissed earlier from the Arena. Students on free school meals will be provided with a packed lunch at the Arena.
All competing students must be in their full Harris PE Kit. All other students must attend in full school uniform.
- Harris / Black shorts (boys/girls)
- Harris / White t-shirt.
- Laced up Trainers/ athletics shoes.
- Harris / Warm black tracksuit (weather permitted)
If your child is unable to take part in an event, he/she will have to bring a note explaining the reason. They should either be in their Harris PE kit or their full Academy uniform.
Unfortunately, due to limitation of space, parents are not permitted to stay in the Arena. Photos of students competing at the events and/or receiving trophies will be posted on our website shortly after each Sports Day.
Should you have any questions about the day, please contact Mrs Jones (Head of PE) at the Academy.
We wish all competitors the best of luck and we look forward to celebrating the Academy’s sporting successes!
