Sports Day – Friday 7th July 2017

Sports Day 2016

Our annual Sports Day will be taking place on Friday 7th July. We would like to ask for your support in ensuring that your child comes prepared to get maximum enjoyment out of the day.

Guidance for students in Year 7, 8 and 9

  • The start and finish times 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, an umbrella, a towel and two spare kits
  • Students should bring something in their P&A colour to change into for the afternoon

For the events in the afternoon students in Years 7 – 9 are asked simply to wear a colour to match the rest of their P&A group. We do not encourage families to spend money on fancy dress outfits.

Guidance for students in Year 10

  • The start and finish times 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 7th 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

Many students in Year 7, 8, and 9 have expressed an interest in applying face paint and using hair spray in the afternoon, as have Year 10. If you do not wish your child to apply face paint and/or to use hairspray, please complete the slip below and return to his/her P&A mentor. Please ensure that if your child is intending to apply face paint that they are not allergic to it and that it is non-permanent. If you are not certain then please inform your child not to apply it.

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. On a final note, we need to emphasise that Sports Day is a normal day in terms of attendance and any unauthorised absence will be followed up in the usual manner. If your child does not wish to take part in sporting activities, please contact his/her Year Office as other arrangements can be made. We thank you for your support and look forward to another fantastic day.

Yours sincerely

Mr M Mann
