The first 3 runners from each Year 1 and 2 class will be given the opportunity to run in the finals.

The children can dress up in their whanau colour, running shorts and shoes. They do not need school uniform on this day, however their clothes should be in whanau colours and be suitable for running.  Sunhats, drink bottles and a warm sweatshirt will also be needed so that we are prepared for the changeable weather!  Please make sure all drink bottles and sweatshirts are named.

Parents are welcome to stay and have a picnic lunch with the children after the event.

If the weather forecast is not looking good the saving day will be the following Monday 28 August at the same time.

Kind regards

The Junior School Team
