The Summer Interschool Sport Program will commence from Friday 24th February 2023.
COMMUNITY SPORTING ACHIEVEMENTS
Congratulations to Lachlan H (Grade 6BS) & Jackson H (Grade 3RM) who attended the State Relay Championships on Saturday 4th February.
In what was an incredible performance on the day, between them, they took home 3 medals: U12 Boys Medley Relay, U12 Boys 4 x 100m Relay& U9 Mixed 4 x 200m Relay.
Can’t wait to see what you can both do at our upcoming Greenhills House Aths Carnival!
If your child achieves something special (grand final win, most valuable player award, best and fairest etc.), please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) through photos and an overview of the achievement to post in Contact. It is important to celebrate and recognise such successes with the school community.
