Year 3 Swimming Carnival (2 photos)

On Friday 15th June, the Year 3 students participated in the end of term swimming carnival at Middle School. It was pleasing to see so many parents and grandparents attending this event. One of the highlights was the visit by Middle School students who will be competing at the School Sport Australian Championships in July. Madison Cooper and Dylan Logan were great assistants on the day and four Year 3 students had a race against both students at the end of the day.

All students participated with great enthusiasm, earning valuable house points during the novelty events. Flynn were the winning house on 236 points, closely followed by Penman 234 and then Burrows and Taylor on 197.

 A weekly lesson will be held each Friday afternoon during Term 2 between the times from 1:45pm – 3:00pm. Children will depart Junior School via bus at approximately 1:25pm and return by 3:20pm. At the conclusion of the term, a Swimming Carnival will be held on Friday 14th September. Details of this carnival will be forwarded to you prior to this date.

Year 2 Soccer with Pete Bradley  (1 photo)

Last Tuesday, two Year 2 classes were able to participate and have lots of fun in a soccer session run by Pete Bradley. Students had the opportunity to refine their kicking in skill activities and small games. All the students participated well and benefited from receiving tuition from a highly accredited coach. I would like to thank Pete for this great opportunity and hope to see him again in the future.
