Pick up will be at the conclusion of the carnival (2.00pm), unless there is a deterioration in the weather.  This could result in an earlier finish time.  Any student who does not have a parent/carer present to transport them home by 2.00pm will be placed on a bus and returned to school.

  Additional Information: The track is an all weather track, so if there are light showers on the day the carnival will still go ahead. In the event of extreme weather visit the Danebank website  and follow the link to “iDANENET”, then SPORTS NEWS to confirm if the carnival is cancelled. In the case of a cancellation a normal school day will apply.
