Time

All day

Location
Various sporting fields

As part of the PDHPE syllabus, students will learn how to maintain a happy and active lifestyle. By allowing your child to attend the primary Gala Day they gain the opportunity to enjoy sports and live a healthy lifestyle. PSSA (Primary Schools Sports Association) organises Gala days to allow students to compete against local schools. Each term, schools have the opportunity to participate in four Gala days. They are full days commencing at approximately 10:00 am and concluding at approximately 2:00 pm. During the day students play a total of three/four games. As a condition of being selected for a Gala Day team, you and your child must sign a contract in order to be accepted into the team - see Gala day contract below. Your child will be participating in training sessions held at Thomas Acres Reserve. Due to this, students will be required to walk to and from the Thomas Acres Reserve during Friday sport sessions. Please sign and return the training permission note - see Training permission note below. Winter Gala Days are listed below: Gala Day 1 - Friday 24 May 2024 (Term 2, Week 4) Gala Day 2 - Friday, 21 June 2024 (Term 2, Week 8) Gala Day 3 - Friday, 16 August 2024 (Term 3, Week 4) Gala Day 4 - Friday, 13 September 2024 (Term 3, Week 8) Please note that if a Gala Day is cancelled due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, it will not be rescheduled. We need to give bus companies 24 hours notice to cancel, otherwise, we are still required to pay for bus hire. This may result in us not being able to provide a credit. Transport Teams will be required to travel by bus to venues within the Campbelltown area. Please be aware that if payment is not made by the Gala Day, your child will be unable to attend. All students MUST travel by bus. There are 4 payments of $10 to be paid before each Gala Day. Please ensure payment is made prior each Gala Day. What to take on the day For each Gala Day (and training session), children will be required to bring the following items: A sun hat to wear between games. It is not always practical for hats to be worn during games, however they must have a hat on between games. Sunscreen is also recommended as there is often very little shade. Water to replenish body fluids lost whilst playing sport. Soft drinks and/or sports drinks are not recommended. A plastic bag to put rubbish in or to put dirty clothes/shoes in. Protective clothing/items that will be required for certain sports e.g. mouthguard, shin pads, boots, headgear etc. Lunch and Recess - Lunch orders cannot be ordered on Gala Days. Training days On Fridays that are not Gala Days, the students in Gala teams may be required to walk to Thomas Acres Reserve for training. Other important information: As is the case in any school activity, poor sportsmanship and/or unacceptable behaviour will not be tolerated and may result in the offender(s) being excluded from participating in PSSA Sport. Please include up-to-date medical information about your child on your child’s permission note. This needs to be completed before they can take part in any out-of-school training sessions or Gala Days. The information is necessary to allow staff to carry out a comprehensive duty of care regarding your child.

King's birthday public holiday

Date

10 June

Time

All day

Location
School closed

The monarch's birthday has been celebrated in the United Kingdom since 1748, during the reign of King George II. Even when their real birthday was in May or June, the celebration was often on a different date. Edward VII, who reigned from 1901 to 1910 and whose birthday was on 9 November, moved his official birthday to summer, in the hope of good weather. King George VI, born on 14 December, celebrated his official birthday from 7 to 12 June. Queen Elizabeth II's official birthday was (usually) the second Monday in June. King Charles III's was announced as also being the second Monday in June.
