On Friday August 10, seventy one Greenvale Primary School students attended the Meadowglen Athletics Stadium in Epping to compete in the District Athletics Carnival.
In beautiful conditions the Athletics Team competed with great athleticism, spirit and sportsmanship across a range of events including, 100m, 200m, 800m, 1500m, hurdles, relays, long jump, high jump, triple jump, shot put and discus.
Battling against a number of local schools each student was competing to win points for our school and the chance to represent our District at the Divisional competition. It was pleasing to see each member of the Athletics Team striving to achieve their personal best.
As a result of this Greenvale Primary School once again retained the Championship Shield on a total of 132 points, in front of cross town rivals St Carlo on 88 points.
Congratulations to all members of the Greenvale Athletics Team, your excellent results are a credit to your hard work and training. Good luck to those who will continue on to the Divisional Athletics in a few weeks and I hope to see you all back on the track again soon.
