Thirteen children represented the school at the State Athletics Championships at Lakeside Stadium.
Ori competed in the 100m, 200m and Long Jump in the Multi class section and won Gold in all 3 events. Ori is a true inspiration. He has trained so hard and gives his all on competition day. The school is very proud of Ori’s achievements.
All 3 relay teams ran heats and all qualified for finals which was fantastic.
The 9/10 Girls ran a super final and finished 3rd receiving a Bronze medal. Congratulations to Josephine, Cleo, Tricia and Isla.
The 9/10 Boys were clean with their baton changes and ran a great 4th place. Well done to Kensei, Austin, Dean and Aadam.
The 12/13 Girls qualified for the final – 0.03 of a second behind Coatesville. In the final the girls ran out of their skins and with flawless baton changes, held off Coatesville to claim the Gold medal.
What a race and what a victory. Congratulations to Jessica, Anita, Teona and Aeon. This is the 3rd year in a row that Jessica and Aeon’s relay team has won State Gold.
To put the children’s achievements into perspective – There are approximately 75,000 children in each grade level across Victoria (half of which are boys and girls )
