2014 Girls' School Junior Athletics Day

November 07, 2014 at 2:36 PM

With one postponed day already, the rain date for the Girls’ School Junior Athletics was looking rather dicey, but it turned out to be a fantastic morning of events for all girls involved. Athletics day provides an opportunity for all students to participate and experience personal success in running, jumping and throwing events while gaining points for their House.

Using the top field and Jubilee Sports Centre at the Boys’ School, the Year 0-3 girls took part in the individual sprints, long jump, Frisbee and chest pass events. To earn points, the girls participated in the competitive fun of the sack race and obstacle course. With her ‘chicken’ in her hand, Principal of the Girls’ School, Dr Sandra Hastie showed the girls how the obstacle course was run, much to the delight of the teams cheering her on.

In the 50 and 60m sprint, the runners with the top eight recorded times in each year level made it through to the finals. The final heat drew many parents and friends to the track sidelines to cheer on and support the girls.
