Dear parent/caregiver,

The annual ASMS Activities Day will be on Tuesday 12 February.
The emphasis of the day will be on participation in a range of activities and building relationships amongst the students and staff. This is not a day just for elite athletes, although there will be an opportunity for some students to start their preparation for selection in the ASMS Athletics team.

The 2019 Activities Day will involve a mix of track and field competition, Learning Studies group games and novelty events. The program will include:

  • 1500m (5 Feb, 8am) and Marathon -5km (7 Feb, 7.30am) running races
  • 100m, 200m, 400m running races
  • Long jump, Triple jump, High jump, and Vortex Throw
  • Novelty Events: Sack race, Three legged race, Tug of war, and Noodle relay
  • Learning Studies Group Events: Volleyball, Petanque, Ultimate Frisbee and Soccer

Students will compete as both a Learning Studies group and individually. It is compulsory for all students to attend and to nominate for some of the events.
The day will begin with Learning Studies at the ASMS at 8:40am and students can expect that we will finish at 3:20. A free BBQ Lunch will be provided to all students.
We will be on the Flinders University Main Oval, away from the ASMS building (students will be unable to access the building for the duration of the day) so we urge students to come equipped with snacks, drinks, sunscreen, hat and appropriate clothing. We will, of course, provide shelters, toilets and change-rooms, first aid, bulk sunscreen and drinking water.
There will be an opportunity to purchase soft drinks and small snacks provided by the Service Club. Money raised will help support charities supported by the school.
Parents are cordially invited to attend for all or part of the day either as spectators or officials. Please let us know if you are able to help.
