It was unfortunate that under the current protection framework we could not hold our full school Athletics Competition as we would have desired. As one of only three other schools in the region to hold an athletics event I am grateful that some students were able to participate in a championship event instead. It was a great success and while certainly a lot quieter than normal it was no less exciting. It was great to see our students were able to participate and shine on the athletics field and there were many exceptional performances over the day.
A huge thank you to our community helpers Tammy Turner, Rick Stolwerk, Kath Manning, Angela Amsterdam, Jen and Leon Olsen, Maureen Barradell, Ugen Iyer, Grace Wiegersma, Jaine and Mike Curran, and Emma Owens.
