Our House Athletic Sports Day

Today the Grade 3 – 6 students participated in the annual House Athletic Sports.

It was a very warm day, so hats and sunscreen were a must! It was wonderful to see many parents and grandparents cheering on the students as they rotated through each activity.

The students participated in a variety of athletic track and field events, including:

  • 100 metre run
  • 200 metre run
  • Hurdles
  • High jump
  • Long jump
  • Triple jump
  • Discus
  • Shot put

Each student is in a particular house (which are identified by different colours) and the points they score in each event goes towards their overall house total. It was a very close competition, with only 16 points separating first and second place. The eventual result was:

  • First place – Lawson
  • Second place – Dennis
  • Third place – Gordon
  • Fourth place – Patterson

Miss Jordan and Mrs Morris were on the hurdles event all day, and they enjoyed seeing the students trying their very best. Here are some photos of the 4KM and 4KJ students enjoying the fun!

Well done to all of the 4KM and 4KJ students for their excellent efforts and sportsmanship!

Thanks to Mr Hair for organising another terrific House Athletics Sports Day!
