District Athletics 2016

Mr Macdermid, Sports Committee

In conditions better suited to a swimming carnival, 48 K.H.P.S. students bravely ventured to Dolomore Reserve in Mentone for the 2016 District Athletics Carnival. Did the rain dampen their spirits (pardon the pun?) Not a chance. In typical Kingston Heath fashion, our students provided wonderful support to all competitors, performed to the best of their ability and had fun, despite what Mother Nature threw at them (all day).

Congratulations to those students who have progressed to the Division Athletics Carnival by finishing first or second in their events. This will be held in Week 1 of Term 4. I’m sure the entire Kingston Heath community wish them all the very best.
