Year 5 Sports Gala

Well done to all of our year 5 students who attended a sports gala day yesterday at Callaghan College Waratah Technology Campus. Students got the opportunity to meet other year 5 students from several of our cluster schools and enjoyed taking part in a variety of activities including crossfit, tennis, basketball, volleyball and relays. Check out our photos below…


This term for sport we are doing basketball with the super tall Russell. We had a great time and are improving our catching, dribbling and passing skills.

Cross Country

Today students from 3-6 walked to Islington Park to participate in our annual Cross Country event. It was great to see so many students having a go and trying their best. Well done, everyone! Special thanks to Mr Slade for organising today’s event. Below are some photos, thanks to Mrs Bowman, including a clever advertisement starring our very own Vinnie!
