Last Wednesday was our Education Week Open Day. We began the day with open classrooms and invited parents and visitors into our classroom to watch our Morning Routine.
Next we had our special Open Day assembly, followed by a hot dog picnic lunch. Year 6 sold drinks to raise money for their farewell.
After lunch was our Olympathon. We participated in many Olympic sports including high jump, rhythmic gymnastics, hockey and shot put. We also collected sponsors to fundraise for this event.
Finally we were all set to have some sessions with Cricket Australia and the Greater Western Sydney Giants AFL team. Alas, we were hit with a freak hail storm so had to abandon that plan! Asides from the weather, a great day had by all.
On Friday the 30th of April our school participated in the District Cross Country. The day started and everyone was nervous and excited at the same time. It was time for the first race, before we knew it the gun fired and they were off. We were all anxious to see who would cross the finish line first.
We all did great considering there were over 120 runners in each race. Everyone in our school finished the race, which was an accomplishment in itself. Most of our runners ran in the top 100, that is something we should be extremely proud of.
Congratulations to all the participants in the District Cross Country and congratulations to all the runners. Good luck to Solomon at the Regional Cross Country.
