Sports Day

We are pleased to inform parents that this year’s sports day will once again be taking place at Eltham College. As you are aware, Sports day will be held on Friday 13th July with the first events starting at 9:45am. We will be aiming to finish all events by 1:15pm, children will then have lunch. After lunch, parents are welcome to take their child/children home directly from Eltham College at the end of Sports day. Children will not be allowed to walk home from the college alone.

We would like to invite you to attend and share in the day’s events. Please note upon arrival, all attendees will enter through the front of the main school, Eltham College, Grove Park Road, SE9 4FQ.

All children will be leaving school immediately after registration and will walk to Eltham College with their class teachers. Please ensure your child comes fully prepared for the day. This includes coming to school in appropriate PE kit and footwear (there will not be time to change before we leave), sun cream and sun hats, packed lunch and plenty of water.

We will be continuing with the team system this year, whereby your child/children will represent a house in a bid to compete for the Sports Day Trophy!  This format is a fantastic opportunity for children to demonstrate our values whilst enjoying the day. Therefore, it would be great if your child could come to sports day wearing their given house colour, to represent their team (Team Blue, Team Green, Team Red or Team Yellow) This could include; socks, sweatbands, hairbands, t-shirts or shorts

We look forward to seeing you on Friday!
