K-2 Athletics Carnival

  • Carinya Christian School 25 Boronia Drive Calala, NSW, 2340 Australia (map)

Parents, carers, special friends and grandparents are invited to the Infants Athletics Carnival. This is a great opportunity to come in and get to know some other families whilst spending time supporting your child in their education at Carinya. 


Parents, carers, special friends and grandparents can sign in and get a name tag from 12:45pm on the small oval.  Sausage sandwiches, water, and coffee and tea will also be provided from 12:45pm onwards.  Please feel welcome to bring fold up chairs and picnic rugs for the BBQ.  Some chairs will be provided.

Barbecue Lunch and Activities

At 12:45pm Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 children will have their BBQ lunch on the small oval.  After the children have eaten, parents, carers, special friends and grandparents will also be able to spend some time with their child on the small oval playing games and activities.  When lunch finishes, at about 1:25pm, the children will line up at their classroom so they can go to the toilet and get a quick drink.  They will then be brought back to the small oval in their classes ready to start the afternoon activities at about 1:40pm. 

Afternoon Program

The afternoon program will involve a variety of activities. At 2:45pm students will go back to their classroom to collect their bags before joining parents at 3:05pm at the normal pick up point in front of the PAC. Children not being collected from school will go home in the usual way.

Travelling Home Arrangements

It is very important that your child’s teacher knows exactly how your child is travelling home on the day of the carnival.  Please RVSP via the link below ASAP.  This will assist with catering for the event and needs to be completed regardless of whether you are able to attend. Reminder texts will be sent if it is not filled out.

Parent Help

It would be wonderful if some parents were able to assist with cooking the BBQ or with serving the lunch. Parents and carers who put their names down to assist with serving will need to be at the oval by 12:30pm.  Parents and carers who are helping with the BBQ will be required between 10am and 11:30am.  There may be occasions during the afternoon when parents may also be asked to ‘lend a hand’ as the children move around the activities.

Please note that all students are required to wear their sports uniform on this day.  It would be wonderful if as many parents as possible were able to join us for an afternoon of fun and fitness.  Don't forget to bring your running shoes for the parent and carer race.
