Swimming carnival is only three days away, on Thursday 5th February. If you haven’t done so already please submit your childs permission note to their class teacher. It’s going to be a great day of racing as well as fun novelty events for non competitors. The weather forecast for Thursday is looking good so don’t forget your hat and sunscreen. Get creative and dress up in house colours!
Ben and Peter competed at the PSSA Athletics Carnival today. The boys competed as members of the CIS team. Ben ran in the 200m on Day 1 of the carnival and then participated in Shot Put and 100m throughout Day 2. Peter had his events; 800m and Long Jump on Day 2. Both boys represented both WCCS and CIS admirably. They both did their best and had a great time. Ben earned his place on the PSSA team through his personal best performance in Shot Put. He threw over 9m. Ben will be attending Nationals at the end of November being held in Tasmania.
The 2 days could not have been more opposite. Day 1 was raining and freezing. Everyone was rugged up and could not get warm. However, day 2 was hot and sunny, the tents that were up to protect against rain and today it was to stop everyone getting sun burnt.
Well done boys!
Today was a great day!
We had 18 students representing WCCS at the State Athletics Carnival. There were a number of individuals and there were 2 teams for the relay. All students did very well. Thanks to all the parents who came and supported our team and again, thanks to all of our athletes, doing WCCS proud.
Zach, Ben and Peter have progressed through to CIS as individual athletes and the Jr Boys Relay team came second overall and will compete as a team at the CIS.
Great day all round!
