June 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This year Sports Day will take place on Tuesday the 4th of July. There will be Athletics heats, Handball and Basketball events in the morning followed by Athletics finals in the afternoon. In the morning when not competing, students will be in normal timetabled lessons and so must bring all necessary equipment.

Sports Day Programme:

Period 1: Year 7          Athletics Heats, Basketball and Handball

Period 2: Year 8          Athletics Heats, Basketball and Handball

Period 3: Year 10        Athletics Heats, Basketball and Handball                  

Period 4: Year 9          Athletics Heats, Basketball and Handball


 1:50pm-3:25pm          Athletics Finals- Whole College

All students will be taking part in a range of activities that will contribute to House point totals. To ensure that we can maximise the time spent on each event students need to:

  • Come to College in full UCC PE kit
  • If students choose to wear House colours in the afternoon then they must wear suitable sportswear e.g. a plain t-shirt or polo-shirt (not vest tops)
  • It is also recommended that students bring their UCC Rugby shirt and either black or blue jogging bottoms in the event of poor weather
  • Bring a bottle of water and sun-tan lotion

We are looking forward to an inclusive and exciting day of Sport and as always we appreciate your support.

Yours sincerely,
Mr T. A. Bourne
Director of Academy Sport
