Age group champions Josh Boulle (Murchison PS), Eliza Hoare (Euroa PS), Bridget Catania (Murchison PS), Zac Alderton (Murchison PS), Blake Fothergill (Nagambie PS), Julia Finnigan (Nagambie PS) and missing from photo Harry Burgess (Nagambie PS).
On the last Thursday of the third term, Nagambie Primary School hosted the Nagambie and District Primary Athletics Carnival.
Grade Three-Six students from four other schools, including Murchison, Euroa (Primary and St Johns) and Peranbin (Violet Town, Strathbogie and Swanpool) joined us for a great day of fun, activity and competition.
To qualify for this event students had to finish in the top two places at their own school’s house athletics.
Students competed in the full range of events including sprints, hurdles, long, triple and high jump, shot put, discus and distance (800
Students finishing in the first three places received ribbons and at the end of the day medals were awarded to the District age group champions. Students who won events now go onto the Division Championship, which is run at Epping (on a synthetic track) after the holidays.
It was a great day and many people contributed to its success. The school grounds were looking especially lovely due to the work of chief gardener Ed and her assistant John. Greg Heathcote had the track professionally marked out.
Staff Mr Bodycoat, Ms George and Noelene had everything highly organised. The Nagambie Primary Parents Club once again ran a great barbecue.
Many parents and grandparents lent a hand. Former Nagambie Primary students, now at Euroa Secondary College, provided great assistance too. It was a lovely way to end the term.
