Loirston Primary School
30th May 2008
The annual sports will take place on the dates outlined below. The format will be non-competitive, as in previous years, as this ensures that all children, regardless of ability, are fully involved throughout the event and this year it is also a key activity as part of our health week programme. In addition there will be a competitive year group sprint for Primary 4-7 pupils. Heats will be run off and the finals will be on sports day.
Information relating to this will be issued separately.
P4 – P7 SPORTS planned for the afternoon of MONDAY 16th JUNE with MONDAY 23rd June being the wet weather alternative. The sports will start at 1.30 p.m.
P1 – P3 SPORTS planned for the morning of MONDAY 16th JUNE with MONDAY 23rd June being an alternative should the weather be inclement. The sports will start at 11 a.m.
Pupils will be allocated a team prior to the day and should come prepared with warm sweatshirt, jogging bottoms worn over shorts and T-shirts. Trainers should be worn. On the reverse of this letter is guidance regarding weather conditions.
Finally, in order to run the sports we require more adults than we have staff. Primary 7 pupils will act as marshals for P1-3 and you can just come and watch! However, HELP IS needed for P4-7 sports. If you would be willing to help at the P4-7 sports, please complete and return the attached slip by Friday 6th June.
