The Interschool Athletics competition took place on Wednesday 16th September at Wembley Downs Primary School. The students have been preparing all term. I have been particularly impressed with students’ continual commitment to training Monday and Tuesday mornings before school. The Kapinara athletics team finished 3rd overall this year, Woodlands in second place and Wembley Downs taking the top spot. The points between the top 3 schools were very close throughout the day, with Kapinara being in first place at the halfway point. I have been so impressed with the students progression this year, they have improved their skills and ability to perform under pressure in competitive situations. We also had great individual success with Xavier M winning the Year 3 Champion Boy title, Mila G winning Runner-Up Champion Girl in Year 5, Owen M winning Runner-Up Champion Boy in Year 5, Stephanie W winning Runner-Up Champion Girl in Year 6 and Eita S winning the Runner-Up Champion Boy in Year 6. Our Year 4 tactic ball girls’ and boys’ teams won their events and we won so many individual ribbons across all events – far too many to mention them all. A great day, with some outstanding performances. Thank you to all families who came to support our students, and thank you to the organisers at Wembley Downs PS.
A special thank you to Ms Filov for all your help on the day.
Ms Liz Burrows and Mr Dean Hodgson
