Sports Day – Friday 3rd July 2015

Sports Day

Our annual Sports day will be taking place on Friday 3rd July. We would like to ask for your support in ensuring that your child comes prepared to get maximum enjoyment out of the day.

First of all, we would like to remind parents of the information sent out to you by text. On previous Sports Days we have encouraged Years 7 – 9 students to wear fancy dress for part of the day. This year the college has made, we believe, the sensible decision to play down this element due to the potential cost implication to parents. Instead the students are asked simply to wear a colour to match the rest of their P&A group.

Guidance for students in Year 7, 8 and 9

  • The timings of the college day will remain the same
  • Students should come to college in their Minsthorpe PE kit
  • They should come prepared for all weather possibilities; bringing sun cream, a water bottle, a waterproof top, a towel and a spare kit
  • In addition to spare kit, students should bring something in their P&A colour to change into for the afternoon

Guidance for students in Year 10

  • The timings of the college day will remain the same
  • Students should come to college in their outfit for the day
  • They should come prepared for all weather possibilities; bringing sun cream, a water bottle, a waterproof top, a towel and two spare outfits

Guidance for Post 16 Students

  • Friday 3rd July is a study day for Post 16 students – If Post 16 students wish to study on site, they need to sign in and out at the Post 16 study centre

Please can we ask for your support in ensuring that Year 10 outfits are appropriate and safe for physical activity in a college environment? Any student wishing to wear a morph suit as part of their fancy dress must wear a pair of shorts as well.

You are reminded that this is an event for students only. In the interests of safeguarding, parents/other adults will not be allowed to spectate. We thank you for your support and look forward to another fantastic day.
