Sports Day - Wimbledon Athletics Track

Evelyn Grace Academy Sports Day - Tuesday 16th July 2019 at Wimbledon Athletics Track

Dear Parent/Carer

The 2019 Sports Day will be on Tuesday 16th July 2019 at Wimbledon Athletics Track (Home Park Road, Wimbledon, London SW19 8AU). This is a compulsory school day for all students and is an excellent opportunity to come together as a school to compete individually and in Houses.

Students will be expected to arrive at school by the normal time of 8.25am. Students will line up in their form groups before boarding coaches to travel to Wimbledon Athletics Track. It is very important students are on time to ensure they do not miss their allocated coach.

The dress code for the day will be the Academy PE kit including the black t-shirt and jogging bottoms/shorts and trainers. Students who normally receive a Free School meal will be offered the choice next week whether they want to be provided with a packed lunch by the school or bring their own lunch. It would also be advisable to bring snacks and extra water to drink.

When at the venue, the usual expectations of behaviour will apply with students sitting in the stands with their year groups until called to enter an event. Whilst in the stands, support for their Houses is encouraged. Our normal rules about the use of mobile phones will apply throughout the day i.e. any visible phones will be confiscated and a 90 minute detention issued.

We will be leaving the venue at 3.00pm and will expect to be back at the Academy by approximately 3.30pm.

Please contact me here at the Academy if you have any questions about the day.
