AQUINAS COLLEGE ATHLETICS
Date: Friday 24th February 2017
Time: 8.45 am – 3.15 pm
Venue: Tauranga Domain, Cameron Road, Tauranga
The event will follow the usual school time frame with the expectation that all students attend this event. Please be aware of the organisation for the day.
Bus Students (afternoon): NO SCHOOL HOPPERS WILL BE AVAILABLE Go Bus will pick up students from Tauranga Domain at 3.15 pm for those who normally catch Bus 6, 7 and 10 in order to connect with other buses. Also at 3.20 pm 1 x charter buses will be provided for students to return back to Aquinas College by 3.45 pm.
For health and safety reasons there will be no other buses provided outside of those provided above and therefore at the completion of athletics parents/caregivers are expected to collect or have made arrangements for your child/ren to get back home via car-pooling or catching the charter bus back to Aquinas College. Students can also walk to the bus stop at the library to catch other Bay Hopper/Urban buses (bus fare applies).
If parents cannot be at the Domain at the end of the programme there will be a bus to ferry students back to Aquinas College. It is hoped that students will be back at school by 3.45 pm.
We are holding these other events during school time: 200m, 300/400m, 800m, 3000m and Triple Jump. A programme of when these events are being held is attached and is also displayed in the gym foyer. Students will also be reminded through the Daily Notices at school.
Students in the various age groups are competing to become their respective Age Group Athletics Champion.
If the day is postponed then buses will run as per normal and students will be expected in school uniform to attend class for a normal Friday Timetable (Week B).
Please Note: The Tauranga City Council has instigated a new policy whereby they no longer will offer a Reserve Day should the original date be postponed. Instead upon cancellation of the programme, they will then allocate another alternative date for us to pick up and utilise. We will have to cross that bridge if Friday 24th February is rained off!!!
