On Thursday 7th September, a group of 54 Year 3-6’s competed in the annual Noble Park District Athletics Competition.
We competed in both Track and Field events. The competition was a challenge but most of the students placed in their events. Any student who came first or second in their event goes off to compete in the Divisions.
Thanks to our efforts, support, and good sportsmanship, our school came FIRST overall out of the 11 competing schools which has never happened before!
We are very proud of our achievements and look forward to the next round of competition.
On Thursday 31st August, 62 of our Year 5/6 students competed in the annual Rugby League Gala Day at Westall Primary School.
When we arrived, each team (Girls Tag A, B & C teams and Boys Tackle A & B teams) and Boys got together and were trained by members of the Melbourne Storm before the competition began.
After the preliminary rounds, the two boys teams finished on top of the ladder and therefore played off in the Grand Final. After two hard fought games, the boy’s teams both were runners up.
The girls A tag team also finished on top of their pool. The girls B team finished second in their pool which meant these two teams had to play against each other for the right to play in the Grand Final. After a very even game, the A team won. Then in the Grand Final, after another evenly played game, the girl’s team were runners up.
All the teams demonstrated sportsmanship and determination. They represented the school well! Congratulations!!!
We owe a big thank you to Mrs Crilly for organising training sessions, the teams and allowing us to go along to compete against other schools. Also, thanks to Mrs Medina, Mrs Anna, Mrs Kapsalis and Miss Carlson for coming along and supporting the teams.
