Sports Day 2023

Miss D Turnbull —

This annual event is a highlight in the school calendar and involves all students from Years 0 -13. Held annually at the Caledonian Sports Ground, Columba College has our Sports (Athletics) Day scheduled for Monday, 27th February 2023. This event is weather dependent.

This much-anticipated event has a focus on participation as well as competition with students having fun and earning house points. The day will be a whole-school event again this year, with camaraderie and teamwork seen across all age groups. Parents are very welcome to attend and encouraged to come along to support students throughout the day.

There will be multiple event options in which your child may participate including throwing, running, jumping, and tabloid games. A whole-school House relay will take part at 12.00pm followed by staff, student and parent relays to close the event at 3.00pm. Please see the attached programmes for more details of the day's schedule.

Please note: the Junior School will be released at 1pm after the conclusion of the House relay. Students in Years 0-6 will need to be collected by parents from the Caledonian Sports Ground and taken home with the exception of those that notified us, a bus has been arranged to transport Junior School students back to school where they will be supervised until the end of the school day. Please note there will be no After School Care on this day.

We look forward to seeing you all wearing your House colours on Monday at the Caledonian (with a gentle reminder that NO face paint is permitted for this event)!

Please note: the postponement date is Tuesday, 28th February. You will receive an alert on your School App and communication will be placed on our social media platform if this event is postponed.
