Sports overview...

This is an overview of sports events for this term.  The school is able to co-ordinate some of these sports BUT not all.  If you are keen to help with the co-ordination of a sport that is not offered by the school, please let us know.  The coloured areas indicate staff are helping with. We are providing this information now so that you and your children can have a think about what they may want to participate in and organise sporting events around your weekly schedules.

Please note that dates sometimes change, and some sports may be added to this list over the course of the year.    School-offered sports teams are depended on support of coaches and volunteers to help.
