The Weekly Wrap – Term 4 Week 4 – 2022

Thank you to all students, staff and families who contributed to the great success of our Sports Day. We loved seeing our community embrace and enjoy the day – a terrific turnout in perfect weather conditions. Congratulations to Woodforde, winning the sports day shield for the second year in a row, with Fraser, Riley and Bradman finishing closely behind. 

A special acknowledgement to Karen Pettman for coordinating the day and attending to all levels of organisation, along with the sports day committee, canteen staff and parent volunteers for their combined efforts to make the day a successful one. Funds raised will go towards a new fridge for the school canteen. A mention and acknowledgement too, to the families who helped stay behind and clean and pack up equipment – thank you.

We would like to commend all students who came along dressed in their house team colours, and participated with such positive team spirit. A big ‘shout out’ to the house team leaders for their excellent leadership of their teams over recent weeks and on the day. They worked collaboratively and enthusiastically to prepare and rehearse the health hustle and team chants, which provided high levels of motivation for their team members, as well as arriving at school early on Friday to set up for the day.
