2018 Inter-House Athletics Carnival

Welcome to the 2018 Pumicestone State School Athletics Carnival.  I hope that you will have an enjoyable time watching our students as they compete.  I have included below some notes for spectators to give you a little more information about the procedures being used for the carnival.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all competitors the very best of luck and remind you that the most important part of competing is to do your best and have fun.

Notes on Carnival Procedure

Field Events
Place getters for each field event will be awarded their ribbons straight after the event has finished in front of their peers and any spectators who choose to watch these events on either day. Yellow lines will be places on the field to signify a qualifying distance/height for districts. *Note: the top three students will go through to districts if they pass the qualifying distance/height. To save time judges will only measure distances if the competitor throws over the red markers in each event.
Students who come top in their heat will later advance to the finals held later in the day. In 100m finals, ribbons will be awarded.
House points will be awarded to relay teams who finish in 1st – 3rd place.
POINTS - All track and field finals/ball games:
1st = 6 points                        2nd = 4 points                      3rd = 2 points                       4th = 1 point
POINTS - Relays:
1st = 12 points                     2nd = 8 points                      3rd = 4 points                       4th = 2 point
RIBBONS - First, second, third and fourth ribbons will be given to the place getters in FINALS of each of the track and field events.  Any student who has not received any place ribbons, may at the discretion of the staff be awarded a ‘Well Done’ ribbon if he/she has competed at a high standard during the carnival.
OUT OF BOUNDS - The school buildings, the central area of the oval and the track (unless competing) are all out of bounds.
NON-Competitors – Students not competing in certain events must go with their age groups to support their peers. No students should be roaming around without a sports day toilet pass. Students are able to watch their siblings compete in an event if their parent is supervising them.
