Dear Parents/Carers,
 
On Thursday 18th July all students in Year 7, 8 and 9 will be taking part in The Wiseman Olympics. This will be a day of fun and excitement as all our students represent their Houses in a range of sports at Perivale Track.
 
The purpose of the day is to develop the students’ self-confidence, team building skills, and the school’s community cohesion. It is an inclusive event with every student participating and contributing to its success and as such it does not replace the school’s traditional sports day and the events will not require a high level of athleticism.
 
All students must come to school in their PE kit and register as normal with their tutor. They will then walk accompanied by staff to Perivale Track. All students will remain at Perivale Track where they will be fully supervised and will be dismissed from there at 2pm.
 
Students must wear their full school PE kit with a t-shirt that is their House colour. Unfortunately the school is not able to supply all these t-shirts so if possible we would appreciate it if you could purchase a cheap and simple t-shirt in your child’s House colours for them to wear on the day. The House colours are as follows:
Campion: Red More: Yellow Ward: Purple
Fisher: Blue Southall: Green Clitherow: White
 
Students must bring with them plenty of drinking water, a packed lunch, a high factor sun cream which they will be responsible for applying and a sun hat. If they use a blue inhaler they must also bring this with them. Students who opt for the steeplechase event will need a change of clothes. Students are strongly advised not to bring any valuables as the school cannot guarantee their safety. Students who get free school meals must collect their lunch during am tutor from the school’s canteen.
 
If The Wiseman Olympics cannot go ahead due to adverse weather conditions you will be notified and it will be a normal school day.
 
If you have any further questions about the day or in regards to your child being educated off site please do not hesitate to contact me.
 
Best wishes,
 
 
 
Mrs O’Neill
