Toolamba Athletics Day
Congratulations to everyone across the school who participated in our annual Toolamba Athletics Day. Dewy grass had the teachers a little worried about the previous night's line marking efforts, but once the sunshine was out, the whites of the sprint track lines reappeared! Cheering, roars and screaming of House Colour songs began the day as students, led by their House Captains made their way over to the Community Oval.
Students are to be commended for their great sportsmanship and sportswoman-ship as cheers of encouragement and excited could be heard throughout the day. High Jump especially had many people holding their breath as some massive PBs were landed.
We finished off the day with House Relays, cheering frantically at our senior students while enjoying the fun and craziness of watching all our junior students complete their own version of a relay as well.
House Captains Nic Sorraghan and Lia Giles (Bayunga), Erin Calleja and Ethan Hodgkisson (Goulburn) and Ben Calvert and Lucy Kinnane (Hovell) showed tremendous leadership throughout the day.
For Individual Grade Level champions, please see the list and photos below.
On Saturday when checking through the scoring Heather discovered two errors in the scoring, one in the Grade 1 Boys and the other in Grade 2 girls champion tally. As a consequence we’d also like to congratulate Lexie Kelly and Olivia Webb on their outstanding performances and also award them Grade 2 Girl Champions and Jake Jeffers the Grade 1 Boy champion. Jacob Robinson was the runner up with one less point. A fantastic effort by all concerned.
The overall House Championship was awarded to Goulburn for 2021. Congratulations!
Tatura District Sports
Toolamba students in Grades 3-6 joined schools from Tatura Primary and Sacred Heart Primary at Tatura's Frank Howley Oval for our District Sports. Again, we were blessed with amazing weather for the day.
Many of our Toolamba students could be seen proudly sporting clusters of ribbons on their t-shirts throughout the day. It was also great to see such a high level of participation - with many students receiving ribbons for unexpected events!
Tyson Webb (if you caught a glimpse of him during the day! - so speedy) was awarded Boy Champion of the Tatura Sports Day. Well done Tyson, such a deserving win.
The highlight of the day, (as everyone who was there would surely agree), was seeing Yellow boys and girls, Green boys and girls, Red boys and girls AND Blue boys and girls take out first place for EVERY relay! It was breath-taking to watch all those successful baton changes! A true testament to the dedicated practise and teamwork of our school sporting students!
Well done everyone, it was a fantastic day!
