WINTER SPORTS LIGHTNING CARNIVAL
Year 4-6 students participated in the inaugural Hills Education Community Winter Sports Lightning Carnival last Friday at various venues in Mundaring and Mt Helena. The Lightning Carnival is a friendly, fun competition with the focus on participation and interaction with children from other Hills schools. Scores are not recorded and no prizes awarded. Our students thoroughly enjoyed the fast paced matches and were able to meet and compete with children from Glen Forrest, Mundaring, Darlington and Mount Helena primary schools in football, netball, soccer, basketball and volleyball. Well done to all team members who played enthusiastically and with good sportsmanship throughout the day. Many thanks to Staff members who supervised teams and umpired matches and to parents who came along to support our teams.
