Today the grade 5/6 students competed in basketball, tennis, volleyball and softball at the Lightning Prem competition. The sun was shining and so were our athletes, with the kids achieving some outstanding results. The school received the district first place pennants in the girls and boys basketball, first place in the girls and boys volleyball, first place in the girls and boys softball and second place in the boys tennis. The boys and girls volleyball were also successful in their division final that was played on the day due to the amount of schools participating in their competition, as decided by the regional coordinator.
It was a very satisfying day for the students, whom some were even quoted as saying it was their favourite day of the year. Thank you very much to the four parents who volunteered to help out coaching the kids. And also a huge thanks to the teachers who have given up their time for tryouts, trainings and to do some study on the sports as it is very foreign to some of us. But no doubt the results from today have shown how much effort the students and teachers both put into be so successful on the day.
Good luck to all the teams that will be participating in the Divison finals in the upcoming week. Standby for dates and notices.
