Faction Athletics Carnival

It was great to see so many parents/caregivers and extended family members out in support at our faction carnival last Friday. Once again, after a slightly damp start, we were blessed with wonderful conditions for the day. After the long jump, long throw and long distance on the Monday, Venville started 16 points clear of Hardy. Hardey did very well in the sprints and team games to overtake Venville. The final results are as follows:

  • 1st- Hardey- 3364 points
  • 2nd- Brearley-  3168 points
  • 3rd- Venville-  3092 points
  • 4th- Ferguson-  2868 points

As with the overall competition, the battle to decide Champion and Runner Up for Year 3- Year 6 was extremely tight. I'd like to acknowledge the following individuals for placing in each respective category:

 Year 6 Champions- Thomas Lishman and Lara Vukovic-Bond

Year 6 Runner Ups- Matthew Klinger and Carmen Sykes

 Year 5 Champions- Ethan Stoute and Pippa James

Year 5 Runner Ups- Romeo Loo and Raya Smethurst

 Year 4 Champions- Finlay Dickie and Milena Vukovic-Bond

Year 4 Runner Ups- Harry McCullough and Abby Lishman

 Year 3 Champions- Mitchell Borman and Molly Kavanagh

Year 3 Runner Ups- Zachary Ashworth and Coco Hickey

 I'd like to thank the staff for their fine efforts in preparing the students and for setting up and packing away equipment, parents/caregivers for turning up to support the students and the students themselves for their good sportsmanship and team work throughout the day. I would also like to acknowledge our school gardener, Bruce for marking out the oval and our Physical Education teachers, Miss Wyatt and Mr Doney for their efforts in making our carnival proceed as smoothly as it did. The faction tarpaulins were a valuable new resource as we had a drizzly start to the day.
