Sports Activator Dates
Fiona Wilkinson, the South Otago Sports Activator will be at school on Thursdays 5th and 26th August and 23rd September. Year 1-8 students attend 30min-1hr sessions on these days learning skills that are relevant on the sporting calendar. If this is not already a PE day for students they are reminded to bring PE uniform.
South Otago Touch commences Week 9 of Term 3 - Thursday 23rd September. This will mean over the next couple of weeks interested students will be asked to sign up and parents will receive permission emails. This year teams will be larger with a minimum of 10 players per team where possible, to avoid team shortages due to illnesses and absences.
In 2020 TCAS had six teams with over 50 students playing and we can not be entered without having a coach or referee, so community/parent/student help is essential. There are Refereeing and Coaching Clinics being held on Wednesday 8th September so if you are able to help with Touch this year please email Tania Barr [email protected] stating where you are able to help and which age group. Thank you!
