The first week back was jam packed with sporting events and all of the staff are extremely proud of the children who participated for their efforts and attitude.
On Wednesday morning, the Year 4 football team competed in the KAS Football Festival. Despite only having one training session together, the team performed brilliantly. They showed great talent, determination and togetherness to produce some great performances, so much so that Mr Carter is extremely excited at the prospect of having them as part of the Year 5 and 6 football team in the next couple of years.
Following the Year 4’s efforts were the Year 5 and 6 Girls football team. They also competed in a KAS Football Festival on Wednesday. Building on their prior successes as a team this year, the girls put together some excellent performances, only conceding 2 goals and losing one match in the whole tournament. If it wasn’t for the extreme heat and a sickness bug affecting our players then Mrs Dawson assures us that we would have been coming home with a trophy.
On Thursday, our Year 6 hockey squad competed in the BSP Quicksticks tournament. The squad was comprised of two teams who performed brilliantly. Both teams played with determination throughout and produced some outstanding team performances, scoring some excellent goals and making astonishingly brave last – ditch tackles. Unfortunately we didn’t bring back a trophy for our efforts, however, one of our teams were only one match off reaching the grand final.
Finally, on Friday, the A and B football teams took part in the final KAS Football Festival. Building on the excellent progress that they have made already this year, both teams gave their all to produce some excellent performances. The B Team remained unbeaten during their group stage matches despite having to face A Teams from two other schools and qualified for the Gold cup, while the A Team kept their nerve and were victorious during two penalty shootouts to win the Silver Cup. Mr Eaton and Mr Carter are extremely proud of their effort and positive attitude on Friday and during the whole year so far.
