Athletics Carnivals

 

FACTION ATHLETICS CARNIVALS 2017

   

We were certainly being looked after when it came to the weather for this year’s athletic carnivals. 

  

The junior carnival on Tuesday, 12h September (Junior) began with a light shower but fined up to a lovely day and Thursday 17th September (Senior) was bathed in sunshine. This added to the jubilant atmosphere and enthusiasm shown by all the children.

  

All participants could be heard cheering for their teams and fellow faction members. Great sportsmanship was witnessed as boys and girls realised that the main emphasis for the day was participating and having fun!

  

All children had the opportunity to run, throw, catch, roll, tug, deliver flags, etc in both individual and team events.  

  

Congratulations need to go to all the children who participated to their best of their ability and were valuable members of a team.  An observer of these events would have witnessed all of the children really enjoying themselves.
