Sports day

Sports day August 14

Our P-3 Sports Day was held last Thursday on Agnes Street oval. The students competed in sprints, relays, ball games, tug-of-war and other rotational activities. The day began with a march past which was a colourful and loud start to the program. It was pleasing to see the large amount of family and friends at this event to support the children. For the very first time a trophy was on offer for the house which accrued the most points in the sprints and ballgames. McNeilly house was the winner of this trophy which meant that they won both the junior and senior carnivals. The day was a huge success due to the support of the staff and parents with a special mention given to John Chapman for the work involved in preparation for this carnival. The parent races were hotly contested and thankfully there were no injuries as the adults sprinted over the 80 metres. It was an enjoyable day from the start to finish and was certainly a highlight of our sporting calendar. Well done Birkdalians!
