Our annual swimming carnival is on Monday the 19th of November
(Week 7). The event this year will be a daytime carnival with events commencing at 9am
sharp. Our nomination was different this year as we went online with it. We are also using a
sports tracker app to record the results and run the program.
Parents will be able to drop students off directly to the pool on the morning of the carnival from 8:15, where teachers will be supervising. If students catch the bus we will organise with the bus companies to have them dropped off at the high school, where teachers will wait to walk them up to the pool. We ask parents to also notify their bus company, to give permission for their child to be dropped off at Sarina High School on this morning. There will also be a group of teachers walking students up to the pool from St Anne’s. These teachers will leave to go to the pool at 8:20am sharp, so after that time students will need to be dropped directly to the pool by their parents. In the afternoon, we will return to school before the end of the school day and students can be collected by car or catch the bus home from school as normal.
A roll will be taken once in the morning and again in the afternoon. If you are taking your child home with you then you will need to get their name checked off the roll before leaving.
Students are to sit under their house tents and will remain there for the duration of the carnival. This is a student safety requirement and will assist us when marshalling for events. It also ensures that students do not miss their races. These tents will be set up on the High School side of the pool. Parents will have the covered shaded area on the hill. You will need to bring a chair or mat, as there are no seats in this area.
The P & F will have food and drinks available to purchase for lunch. Students will need to bring a bottle of water and their lunch for the day. A list of items students will need to bring is included in our latest newsletter. Please make sure everything has the student’s name on it.

Enrolments for Prep are currently being taken for the 2019 school year. If you have a child due to commence Prep next year born between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014 please complete an enrolment form available from the school office or download from the school’s website. When returning the enrolment form, please remember we need to sight the original birth certificate or a certified copy and we also need a copy of their baptismal certificate & immunisation records. It is essential that we have our current families accounted for so that we know the number of places available for new families.
