The District Athletics started almost three weeks ago, when the seventy Greenvale Primary School Athletics Team members went to Meadowglenn Athletics Track on Friday August 19th.
Unfortunately the rain grew too strong on this day, and we had to cancel proceedings, only making it through half of the scheduled events.
Our second Athletics Day was then rescheduled for Thursday August 25th. But unfortunately, with the threat of a storm, this day was also cancelled.
Our third and final attempt to conclude our Athletics Day was on Monday September 5th. Fortunately for us, we had bright and sunny weather throughout this day and were able to finish off all pending events.
Across all of these days, the Greenvale team competed with great spirit, resilience and determination. With many walking away with ribbons and smiles on their faces.
As some schools could not attend rescheduled athletics days, the district decided to not announce a champion school for 2016.
However, twenty Greenvale Primary School students will move onto represent our district at the upcoming Divisional Athletics at Meadowglen Athletics Track, on Tuesday September 13th.
We wish these students all the best.
