The Faction Carnival will take place on Friday 3rd September. We have made the decision to move the carnival from the original planned date of Wednesday the 1st due to the poor weather forecast. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause but we were keen to ensure that the day runs as smoothly as possible.
This will also impact the Music Assembly planned for Friday which will be held on an alternative date to be advised.
We invite you to come and support our students in their events. Please find the running order of events for the carnival here. All times are approximate, we will endeavour to stick to the times listed, however please appreciate we could be running a few minutes ahead or behind at different points during the day. The P&C have kindly organised volunteers to help with the jumping and throwing events in the morning. A full running sheet including all students will be communicated shortly.
If you would like to volunteer and help on carnival day, please e-mail Mrs Burrows at Elizabeth.Burrows@education.wa.edu.au

Jumping and throwing events
These will take place before school beginning at 7.40am. These events have been taught in lessons: the top 4 boys and top 4 girls in each faction have been selected to take part in these events.
Long distance runs
The 800m for Years 5 and 6 and the 400m for Years 3 and 4 will take place before the sprints. Students were given the opportunity to nominate for these events.
All students will take part in one sprint race (50m/75m/100m) Students have completed these races in class and have been seeded in divisions accordingly.
Middle distance events
The 200m event has been added this year to give students the opportunity to compete in more races. Like the long-distance events students were given the opportunity to nominate for this event.
All students will take part in at least one team game to represent their faction.
