Junior School Sports update

Posted 11 May 2018 12:19pm

As always, our students have been very active in a number of sporting events. In this article we catch up with the Junior School Cross Country and South Weston Swimming Carnival.

Cross Country

Junior School students from Years 2 to 6 gathered at Stromlo Forest Park on Friday, 13 April for the annual Cross Country Carnival which comprises races across a variety of distances ranging from 1k to 3k. The students displayed determination and grit putting in wonderful efforts. The team of students who will be representing the school at the South Weston Cross Carnival can be viewed here.

Following the carnival, there was great excitement and anticipation as the house scores were announced.

We were very grateful for the support parents and grandparents gave during the carnival. Thank you to the maintenance staff, the PE teams and staff of both the Junior and Senior schools. It was again hearting to see and hear this year the encouragement and support parents gave not only to their own child but to all students.
