Last Friday we held our Annual Sports Day and it was a great success! It was wonderful to see so many family members attending and cheering on the children.
A lot of ‘behind the scenes’ work goes into the planning of Sports Day and I would like to thank everyone who contributed to this. I would especially like to acknowledge the out of hours’ time and work of our Sports Day Committee (Kane Watkins, Steph Webb, Amelia Travis, Guy Barbara and Kaye Coley) for the time they spent planning the day. The committee met in the weeks leading up to Sports Day to ensure that the events included this year were based on the feedback from our students. Thanks also to Greg Coley for marking out the lines and ensuring the oval was ready. Miss Greenhalgh did a great job of choreographing and preparing everyone for the day with the Whole School Health Hustle. A big thank you to Andrew Neagle and his team for the speakers and sound system used for the event.
Thanks also to our class teachers for preparing classes for the events, adjusting timetables to allow for runoffs and extra practices as well as supervising team meetings to practise the team chants and the health hustle.
One of the highlights was the parent event, thank you to the volunteers who participated in this year’s event the Tug of War, the children certainly enjoy seeing their family members joining in on the fun.
Thank you to everyone else who contributed to make the day such a success, helping with scoring, helping to cook the BBQ, volunteering in the canteen or on the cake stall or by providing cakes and baked goods for the stall.
Congratulations to Ind who were the overall winners and to Packer for winning the Good Sports Award. Congratulations to all our students for their positive sporting attitudes and overall contributions to the day.
