Students who have returned their Medical and Permission form will be given a wrist band in form class on Tuesday 26th March. NO students will be permitted on the bus to Kearneys Spring without their wrist band. All competitors must wear their wristbands during their race.

Students will work periods 1 to 6 only.  At 12.55pm students can purchase lunch requirements then make their way to the bus interchange.  Buses will depart at 1.10pm.

For those students that do not participate in the Interhouse Cross Country, they will stay here at school and participate in the Fun Run. Each student will walk laps of the school oval (400m track) and total laps will be recorded. Certificates will be awarded for the following results: Student Male and Female with the most laps per house, Form class with the most laps per house, Overall House with the most laps.

Points for students participating in the Fun Run count towards the Overall Participation Award.
