Ath­letes ex­cell at carnival

Campaspe News - - GOLF NOTES -

ON TUES­DAY Au­gust 29, the 11 and 12 year old stu­dents from Rochester Pri­mary School trav­elled to Vic­to­ria Park in Echuca to com­pete in an ath­let­ics carnival.

The carnival in­volved five Echuca Schools and schools from Lock­ing­ton, Moama and Rochester Pri­mary.

The chil­dren had been train­ing hard for many weeks dur­ing the lead up to the carnival, spending many lunch times and re­cesses prac­tic­ing high jump, hur­dles, dis­cus and shot put as well as the re­lays.

The chil­dren showed great de­ter­mi­na­tion dur­ing their prac­tices and loved hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to achieve their per­sonal events.

On the day of the carnival, chil­dren com­peted in eight dif­fer­ent events, with their per­for­mances go­ing towards a to­tal team score for their school.

All the Rochester ath­letes gave their all in ev­ery event and they achieved some bril­liant per­sonal results.

The won­der­ful at­ti­tude of the stu­dents, helped them to pro­duce an in­cred­i­ble win.

At the end of the day, Rochy Pri­mary School won the over­all tro­phy by more than 100 points.

The chil­dren were de­lighted with the re­sult and should feel very proud bests in many dif­fer­ent of how hard they worked and how much they im­proved dur­ing our ath­let­ics unit.

On Wed­nes­day it was the nine and 10 year old stu­dents turn to com­pete.

This was the first Ath­let­ics carnival for many of th­ese stu­dents.

The school was again in­cred­i­bly proud of how hard the stu­dents com­peted and the ef­fort and de­ter­mi­na­tion they showed for the whole day.

The team did a great job to fin­ish fourth over­all.

Many stu­dents have now qual­i­fied to go on to the Re­gional Ath­let­ics Carnival in Bendigo and we wish those stu­dents all the best.
