Requesting Absence from Sport
Please note that as per Ms Allum’s article in the Green Gate on June 20, all parents are required to request permission to seek leave from Saturday Sport from Ms Allum (Secondary) or Ms Cumming (Primary).

BTGG 20/6/19
“From now on, there will be a change of rules and expectations for all School co-curricular activities. If a girl puts her name down for some activity, she will be expected to fulfil all requirements of that activity - 100%! We expect girls not to sign up for something if they already have another conflicting commitment, unless some arrangement is agreed between the staff involved beforehand.
We expect that parents will request permission for any such Leave from Liz Cumming or me, in the same way that you would ask for a period of time for Leave from the ordinary school day” Ms Allum

SCEGGS Mid-term Break – August 19
A reminder that all students are still expected to play their Saturday morning sports fixtures over the SCEGGS Mid-term break. It is the school expectation that all girls will honour their commitments to their teams.

Sports Choice Forms Term 4
Sports Choices Forms for both Primary and Secondary students will be sent out this week. Please check the schedule carefully and ensure that your daughter can commit fully to the sporting activities that they are signing up for. Please contact the PDHPE Dept if you have any questions.
