Lightning Prem

Well done to all the students who competed in the District Lightning Prem today. Beaconsfield impressed, as usual, with their sportsmanship and encouragement.

A special congratulations to the Girls basketball (won in a nail biter) and Boys softball who made it through to Division. A decision will be made on the cricket at a later date, as the Beaconsfield vs Pakenham Springs grand final was not played.

Thank you to the parents and teachers who helped coach and score for the day.
