The Event:

This year Primary Sport Canterbury cross country races will be run in YEAR levels, rather than age. Therefore, we will be doing the same on Wednesday. There will be 4 races - Year 4 , 5, 6, and 7&8 combined with the boys and girls race for each year level being staggered a couple of minutes apart.

WE NEED YOU to help with [a] walking to and from Westlake with the students, and [b] marshalling duties on the day.

[1] Walking - will involve walking down and back with your child's class. Just ensuring they are safe on the journey.

A notice will come home MONDAY regarding the event, as will a parent help reply form. Parents who offer to WALK WITH STUDENTS should arrive at your child's classroom at least 10 minutes before the indicated departure time.
NOTE: If you offer help, we will take it up. Rather than reply to all parents we will have a blanket response:

 Thank you for offering to help. Yes, we would love to take up your offer. Please be at your child's classroom at least 10 minutes before indicated departure time. Cheers. Grant and Danny.

[2] Marshalls - we will need some parents who are happy to act as a marshall around the course keeping an eye on proceedings. We will also need some helpers near the finish line to ensure students run in the right direction and stay in order once they have finished.

On the day, please listen out for the MARSHALS announcement from Danny or Grant. We will call a short meeting for those who can help marshall, at which point we will allocate tasks.
