In the afternoon, the golf and track events took place. The team had practised the relays – in particular the baton changes – in the weeks leading up to the big day. The focus was such that the Year 4s wanted to practise during the morning. The hard work paid off with the following results in the relays: Year 4 girls (2nd), Year 4 boys (3rd), Year 5 girls (2nd), Year 5 boys (1st), Year 6 girls (1st) and Year 6 boys (1st). Congratulations as well to Ron in Year 6 who came first in the sprint.

The behaviour of the children was superb: they spent the duration cheering each other on and chanting. It was amazing to see such pride for the school and the community coming together. Thank you too to the parents who showed wonderful support for our pupils. The children worked really hard and this accumulated in two trophies: best on the field events and best overall school. Well done to everyone who took part.
