Athletics Day

Years 3 - 6

Things were looking ominous when rain started falling at 5.00am Monday10 August, however, by 9.00am the rain had vanished and the sun even managed to shine, well for a while anyway.


It was a great day. All the students put 100% effort into their events and there was fantastic support from those not competing. Even to the extent where some students competed for other Houses when a team was short.  What was also very pleasing to witness was the improvement in all the kids. Physical Education sessions this Term, have had a focus on Athletics and this practise was evident to see in everyone who competed.


Many thanks must go to Mr. Smethurst who put in many hours organising the day and to Messrs. Starling, Hewitt, Jamieson and Macdermid who joined Mr. Smethurst at the track at 7.30am to set everything up.  Also a special mention to all those parents who came to watch and put their hands up to help. Days like this are successful when we have many people who are willing to assist. The House Captains must also be mentioned for ensuring all students were allocated events and juggling competitors around when people were absent or injured.
