Interschool Cross Country

Congratulations to our Cross-Country team on their spirited performance at the recent Hills Cross Country Championship, where we finished 8th overall out of the 11 schools competing. The winning school was Gidgegannup. Our year 6 girls’ team and year 5 boys’ team both earned fourth placing in the team events. Several of our runners finished in top ten positions and with 44 runners in each event these were exceptional achievements. All our athletes showed terrific endeavour and endurance. They should all be very proud of their efforts.

Freo Kick Kick Success

On Friday, 5th August, 20 of our students travelled to Fremantle Oval after school to participate in the Freo Footy Shills Competition, which is an annual event attracting competitors from schools throughout the state. Our students performed exceptionally well, with several earning a place in the State Grand Final, which was held last Sunday at Subiaco Oval, prior to the AFL match between Fremantle and Adelaide. Once again we had some great results with Lauren Davey winning the year 4 Girls Long Bomb and our Year 4/5 girls’ team of Emma Grant, Ella Curry, Siobhan Sudholz, Holly Davey, Lauren Davey and Emma Smith winning the Freo FastBall. Congratulations to all students who participated in both competition days and thank you to parents who supported this event.
