Hard work pays off for Monogorilby students
MONOGORILBY students are working in line with their school motto and striving for excellence both in the classroom and on the sports field.
Thanks to their work this term, under the direction of Vicki-Lee Radke, fitness levels and athletics skills have improved.
The hard work paid off for the students who attended Abercorn Goodwill Games recently when six students were awarded the age champion trophies.
“This bodes well for Monogorilby’s upcoming sports day on Saturday, June 15 to which all are welcome,” Principal Jo Vidler said.
In other sports news, the school has secured visits from Richard Dugdale for rugby league coaching and Shaun Lethem from Little Athletics to work with students on how they can improve their track and field techniques.
P/1 teacher Mark Zita, has been spending his morning tea and lunch times refereeing and coaching league and gridiron games and will be soon spending some time teaching piano to all students.
“Several Monogorilby students have been doing very well in equine pursuits at weekends, with campdraft and showing wins and places,” Ms Vidler said.
