88th CAS Track and Field Championships at Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre (SOPAC), Homebush on Thursday 14th September, 2017

 

It is COMPULSORY for all boys in Years  9, 10 and 11.

  • Boys will travel by bus from TGS to Homebush.
  • Depart TGS at 1.15pm
  • Finish at Homebush by 8.15pm (Approx)
  • Boys may also be picked-up at TGS by 8.45pm (Approx)
  • Please arrange to meet your son in the School car park (entry via Victoria St)

There will be three buses leaving at 11:00 am from Prospect Road for the competitors.

All boys in Years 9, 10 and 11 will travel to SOPAC by bus from School, departing at 1:15pm. Students in Years 7, 8 and 12 can voluntarily attend by collecting a permission note from the Sportmaster’s office and returning the signed permission slip to the student services office by Wednesday 13th September.

The Championships will finish at approximately 8.15pm. The buses will be leaving as soon as possible thereafter and will return all students back to the Summer Hill Campus.

Any student wishing to be picked up by their parents from SOPAC after the Championships must supply a note to Student Services by Wednesday 13th September notifying the school of these arrangements. Students not returning to Trinity must be collected by their Parents or Guardian as students are NOT to use public transport to make their way home.

Parents who collect their sons from SOPAC will have to park in one of the car parks while waiting for their sons to leave the Centre in the evening, as there will not be any room for cars to park outside of the Athletics Centre.

Parents will not be able to collect their sons before the end of the CAS Track and Field Championships as it is grossly discourteous for boys to leave before the end of the meeting. All boys should support their School Track and Field Team right to the very end.

Boys must wear their winter uniform including coats to the Championships.  Boys should also be ready to be actively involved in cheering, thus supporting our Athletes. All I-pods, ipads, computers,  MP3s, tennis balls, reading material, etc will be confiscated.  Boys may take their mobile phones but must ensure they are switched off during the Championships.  The phone may be kept in the student’s pocket.

Boys will be able to purchase food and drink at the Centre. However, it would be an advantage to bring food and drink, as the lines at the kiosk can be very long. No school bags should be taken to the Championships and definitely no glass bottles.

If there is a legitimate reason for your son not to attend the Championships, parents are encouraged to write a letter to the Master of the Middle School (Year 9) or Master of the Senior School (Years 10 and 11) requesting permission. Boys in Years 9 to 11 who are unable to attend the Championships will be expected to attend and give support to an alternate non-compulsory School event at a later date.
