Willagee News: Athletics Carnival


Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our Athletics Carnival at our Willagee site is scheduled for Thursday 3rd September. Unfortunately, we are faced with a difficult decision to limit spectator numbers to comply with the State Government imposed Covid-19 restrictions of one person per two square metres. This is due to the limited space available on the oval. Therefore, we ask that only one family member attends between 8.50am and 10.30am due to the limited spectator area for the running races (non-school aged children are able to attend with that one person).

However, after 10.30am our children move to tabloid events which are spread across a much larger area. Therefore, families are welcome to have more than one adult present for these events while still maintaining physical distancing.

Pre-primary families – after the race, your children have tabloids in the PP area. As this is a larger space, more than one adult per family will be possible. Please refer to the letter that was sent home for further information.

Schedule of races – To assist in planning your attendance, please see the times of the races below.

  • Pre-Primary: 9.00 – 9.15am
  • Year 1: 9.15 – 9.30am
  • Year 2: 9.30 – 9.45am
  • Year 3: 9.45 – 10.00am

Sausage Sizzle and Canteen – A sausage sizzle and canteen food will be available on the day, however, this needs to be pre-ordered. Please have your order in by Friday 28th August.

The cake stall fundraiser that is usually available during the Athletics Carnival will be unavailable due to the Covid-19 restrictions.

Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for your support.

Yours sincerely,

Vivienne Doig
