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.
Congratulations to the Girls Basketball, Boys Basketball and Boys Tennis teams for making it through to the Semi-Finals for Inter School Sport.
It was a tough morning. The Girls Basketball team and the Boys Tennis team tried their hardest to make it into the Finals but their competition was just that little stronger.
Whereas, the Boys Basketball team won their Semi-Final game and made it into the Grand Final. It was a tougher game than their first. They tried their best and worked well as a team but unfortunately, they didn’t win. They came runners up in the Noble Park District.
We would like to congratulate all students who made it to the semi-finals and finals! It was great to see you all work as a team, show great team spirit and sportsmanship!
Last week the Year 5/6 students were involved in a 2 hour incursion run by Coach Approach.
We participated in Taekwondo, Soccer, Touch Football and Hip Hop dance.
Each of the rotations were great and run by elite Athletes. It was a fantastic morning with fun had by all of us!
During Term 1, the Year 5/6 children were involved in the AFL program run by Yusuf Qaafow from the Collingwood Football Club.
As past of the program, the children participated in 5 Practical Clinics. The clinics are aimed at developing the children’s skills in AFL as well as improving their general ball handling skills whilst aiming to increase their leadership and communication skills. It also had a focus on the importance of having a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
