Faction Athletics Carnival 2021

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

Interschool Athletics Carnival 2020

The Interschool Athletics competition took place on Wednesday 16th September at Wembley Downs Primary School. The students have been preparing all term. I have been particularly impressed with students’ continual commitment to training Monday and Tuesday mornings before school. The Kapinara athletics team finished 3rd overall this year, Woodlands in second place and Wembley Downs taking the top spot. The points between the top 3 schools were very close throughout the day, with Kapinara being in first place at the halfway point. I have been so impressed with the students progression this year, they have improved their skills and ability to perform under pressure in competitive situations. We also had great individual success with Xavier M winning the Year 3 Champion Boy title, Mila G winning Runner-Up Champion Girl in Year 5, Owen M winning Runner-Up Champion Boy in Year 5, Stephanie W winning Runner-Up Champion Girl in Year 6 and Eita S winning the Runner-Up Champion Boy in Year 6. Our Year 4 tactic ball girls’ and boys’ teams won their events and we won so many individual ribbons across all events – far too many to mention them all. A great day, with some outstanding performances. Thank you to all families who came to support our students, and thank you to the organisers at Wembley Downs PS.

A special thank you to Ms Filov for all your help on the day.

Ms Liz Burrows and Mr Dean Hodgson

Faction Swimming Carnival

Nomination Form

Running Sheet

Welcome to Faction swimming 2020. This year’s faction carnival will be held at HBF Stadium, 100 Stephenson Ave, Mount Claremont WA 6010, on Friday March 13 from 9:00am until around 12:00pm. The event will take place in the indoor 8 lane pool.

The schedule for the day is as follows:

  • Welcome
  • 50m breaststroke
  • 50m backstroke
  • 50m freestyle
  • 50m butterfly
  • 25m breaststroke
  • 25m freestyle
  • Championship trophy awarded to winning faction
  • Champion girls and boys and runners up medals awarded
  • Close of competition

Confident swimmers in year 4, 5 and 6 are asked to nominate for at least two of the 50-metre events. (Children will be selected for the interschool swimming competition based on their performance in the faction swimming carnival.) The 50-metre events include freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. There will be no 200m events in this year’s interschool carnival or faction carnival.

Children who are not as confident at swimming the 50-metre events will be able to nominate for the 25-metre freestyle and breaststroke events instead. Please DO NOT nominate for both the 50m AND the 25-metre event of the same stroke. 25-metre events will be participation event only and will have no ribbons issued or points allocated to them.

Children swimming in the 50-meter events will be placed into heats. At the end of these heats, the times will be compared and 1st to 4th places will be decided. A draw will result in two ribbons being presented.

50-metre butterfly events will be filled by children who nominate for those races. These events will count towards the championship trophies.

The school and community place a strong emphasis on all our students developing confidence and competence in and around water and with this in mind we ask that all students nominate for a minimum of two events.

Many thanks go out to parents who have participated in the past. It is likely that we will require the assistance of 16-24 parents as up to 3 per lane may be needed as backup for the electronic timing.

Children will be seated on the south side of the pool in their factions and parents will be seated in the visitors’ section on the north side of the pool. Parents will be required to pay a $2.60 entry fee. We ask that parents and siblings refrain from entering the competitors’ section. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed at HBF Stadium unless they are assistance dogs.

Queries about this event can be forwarded via email to  Elizabeth.Burrows@education.wa.edu.au  or Dean.Hodgson@education.wa.edu.au

Kind Regards
