I would like to extend a HUGE thank you and congratulations to everyone who was involved in helping us run a very successful Athletics Day for our grade 3-6 students late last term. The students were tremendous in their effort and sportsmanship throughout the long day that saw them competing in seven events (hurdles, 100m, 200m, long jump, triple jump, discus, and shot put). Additionally, we had some students choose to run in the 800m race as well as some being selected for the House relay race. All of this was on top of the high jump finals which were held at school. This completed a wonderful term of learning and preparation that had occurred in all of the PE lessons leading up to the event. The Athletics Day couldn’t have been held without the amazing support of the volunteer parents and grand parents who helped at each of the events – you are amazing! I would also like to thank all of the staff for their organisation and support of the event, it was a long and busy day for everyone involved. All of the times and distances have been compared, and our district athletics team has now been selected as a result – those families have been informed and the team is also on display near the gym entrance. Points for each event were calculated and the final House results were:

1st: Phipps (yellow) 10,513 points.

2nd: Landscape (blue) 10,397 points.

3rd: Lockwoods (green) 9,739 points.

4th: Montana (red) 8,988 points.

Well done to everyone in the Phipps house!
