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.
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!
