District Athletics 2015Michael Smethurst, Sports Coordinator
On Friday 4th September, Kingston Heath Primary School competed in the Cheltenham District Athletics Carnival at Sandringham Athletics Track.
The 45 athletes took to the track and field events like ducks to water, winning many heats and placing in others. However, to qualify for the next level (Division) for track events, you had to record the fastest or second fastest times in all heats combined. One of the highlights was when two of our year 3 students decided to compete against the year 6 girls in the 800 metres. Not only did they represent our school with pride, they also were able to beat some of the year 6 students across the finish line. It is always exciting to see children challenge themselves.
Kingston Heath Primary School wishes the following children who have qualified for the Division Athletics Sports all the best at the Division Athletics Carnival:
Discus 9/10 Girls – Sienna G – 1st

Discus 11 Boys – Tyson S – 1st
