Last Friday, August 28th, approximately 50 students competed in the St Albans District Primary Schools Athletics Carnival held at the Keilor Athletics Track. They competed in a number of athletics events, including 100, 200 and 800 metres running, hurdles long jump, triple jump, high jump, discus, shot put and relay. The students had been preparing for the Carnival over the last few weeks practising for their events and were excited about competing against students from other schools. Unfortunately the weather was not the best, but this did not deter our students from having a fantastic day, and producing some excellent results.
Gloria was a star again this year winning 3 events. Others to gain a first place were Andrew, Jason, Anet, Leisha, Esera, Lance and the 12 yr old girls relay which consisted of Annie, Elleni, Lani and Gloria. Kathy, Rebecca, Jackson, Hannah, Nandana also performed well in their events. All these students have been chosen to represent our district at the Division finals which are being held next Tuesday, September 8th.

We each competed in events, some of us winning and getting a place, some of us not, but we all tried our best. Now some of us are going to the division finals,the next step.When ever there was an event, we always supported each other even the other schools.while other schools ran amok and misbehaved our school was on it best behavior! As the school captain was proud of our school.Even thought at the end of the day we were all exhausted we all had a great time and were proud of our school. Elleni.
