School Captains

On the 18th of August, the school council participated in No Bullying day by giving out ribbons to students without orange, and helping out with other activities, like colouring in and making posters to promote no bullying.

On the 25th of August, we judged all the amazing costumes for Book Week, and hosted the parade where everyone showed off their fantastic costumes. It was a pleasure to do anything and everything to help out, and we look forward to doing more.

School Athletics Report!

A couple of weeks ago we had our school athletics carnival. The events we had were long jump, high jump, triple jump, discus, shot put, 100 metre sprint, 800m running race and relay races. We also had activities before school including skipping and basketball shooting. It was absolutely amazing to see all the house spirit and encouragement from all students. Thank you to everyone who participated on the day!

The winning house for our school athletics carnival was Jersey Joeys who on 1130 points! Well done! O’Hea Ospreys came in 2nd with 1103 points, Bishop Bandicoots came 3rd with 1054 points and Gaffney Gliders came 4th on 936 points.

Last Wednesday we had 42 students attend the district athletics carnival at Coburg athletics track. It was an absolutely amazing day and everyone cheered each on each other really well and it was a really fun day. A big thank you to everyone no matter whether you got through or not you did an amazing job to get to districts.

A big congratulations to the following students who made it through to Divisions. We wish you all the best!
