Congratulations to all of the students who trained in the weeks leading up to the competition and who competed on the day. We had an awesome time both participating in the events and cheering each other on. It was exciting to see many people achieve a personal best, perhaps they were given extra inspiration through our work on the Olympics! Congratulations to all of the students that made it through to the Regional Competition, compared to last year, we did an amazing job! Last year we had two people make it through to the Regionals, this year we have eight:
Josie Taylor – 12/13 Year Girls Long Jump
Bronny Illsley – 12/13 Girls 100m sprint & 200m sprint
Alannah Gorski –11 Year Girls Long Jump
Imogen Hillier – 11 Year Girls Discus
Luke Arends – 11 Year Boys Discus
Adam Towse – 11 Year Boys Triple Jump
Erika Vodopic – 10 Year Girls Shot Put
We also had two outstanding Year 3 athletes who performed at Regional Standard even though they cannot compete in the competition until Year 4 (there are no 9 Year events at the Regionals).
Belle Fletcher – 9 Year Girls 800 meters
Ayden Cooper – 9 Year Boys Discus
We would like to thank Mrs Hales and Mrs Tolley for training and entering us in to all of our events and to the parents that were able to come to training and to Landy Field to support us. A very special thank you to Jodie MacDonald who spent the whole day running the Girls Triple Jump for our school. It is a very big job and she worked very hard. Also to Tanya Miller for washing all of our shirts afterwards!
Overall it was an amazing day and everyone showed all of our school values which was excellent!
