We are nearly finished with the first 2 weeks of the new Term and AISAA League games & friendlies will be consistently happening every week for the next month and half. We would like to send out a few reminders.

Fixtures – How do I know when games are on and who is selected? Change to G5-U Football Tournaments

Firstly you can find all of our Sport Coaching fixture on the Calendar page under “Fixture List” or by clicking here. Fixtures are subject to change, please double check the week before. We will send out generic SMSs on either Friday or Saturday to confirm games the week before (please see an example of a Home and Away SMS below). From these generic SMS you will be informed if we are “host” (home) or if we are “at” (away), the school we are playing, and the date of the game. Please note we will also share a link to the Coaching Team list which will have “Y” next to names of students who have been selected to play in that game. Please note that receiving the SMS does not mean your child has been selected, you must open the link and check.

Please note one major change to the Calendar is the G5-U Football Tournaments, these were originally schedule for 27th January but please note they will now be played on Tuesday 12th February with the Boys at Berkeley and the Girls playing here at KIS. Both tournaments are expected to start at 8:30am and finish by 11:30am. Student selection will be sent out the week before via SMS.

AQI – How do I know if the Air Quality is too bad to play?

Since the start of this week the Air Quality has not been particularly good, especially in the mornings. Please note we are constantly checking the Air Quality (through our own air monitor on campus and other public monitors) and will always follow our school policy on Air Quality. You can find a copy of the policy here (Air Quality Policy) but the two main point to take from this document are 1) Games will be canceled if the AQI is over 200 and 2) adjustments will be made to game length if AQI is over 150.

This week we have sent out some confirmation SMS to assure you that games are still on. Please note we will no longer send these and ONLY send out SMSs for cancellation due to bad Air Quality.
