Greater Western Regional Tennis
Congratulations to Frazer Shurdington and Hannah Heard who will make the trip to Ballarat early next term to compete in the Greater Western Regional Tennis competition. We are right behind you, send support and best wishes for a superb day of hitting to you both – best of luck!
Year 5 & 6 students will be eager to commence their winter sports in Term 2 in preparation for some interschool mini competitions to occur. Students will have preference in choosing their ideal sport to train and participate in. Successful team results will see opportunities to progress within their chosen sport at divisional and regional levels.
We have certainly had a full term of sporting carnivals and events and would love to extend a warm thank you to our parent volunteers that were of huge assistance in delivering these carnivals in such a professional and supported way. Your contribution is certainly valued and I look forward to working with you all again throughout the year.
Have a superb easter and first term holiday break. I look forward to seeing you all fresh and keen for a brilliant Term 2 of sport!
Mrs Hayley Thomas, Junior Sport Coordinator
