Sports Carnival

The annual sports carnival is a fun day away from school where the kids participate in a range of track and field events. They get ferried away from school after morning assembly in a line of yellow coaches and travel to a local sports centre. Mums, Dads and grandparents are all welcome to spectate and cheer along as the kids run and jump their way to the finish lines.

Usually I have had three kids at this event and have spent half my time running around trying to find them amongst the sea of uniforms and sun hats. Sian has moved up to High school so today was a breeze with only two kids to chase after!

The best part of the day is at the end of the races when the kids line up to get the buses back to school or if they prefer they can get signed out by their parent and head home early! Bonus! What better start to a three day Public Holiday weekend than signing out of school early!

Let the chill-out begin....
