Hot shots finish on a high note
Ping pong, athletics and more
DALLARNIL State School students have been participating against each other in the sport of table tennis for at least 10 years.
Principal Andrea Kelly said in Term 4 table tennis was introduced to encourage the children out of the sun and heat and into the shade and cool underneath the school rather than running around outside.
“The kids really enjoy it and even the preppies become involved,” she said.
“The senior aggregate we couldn’t even separate them – that’s how close it was.”
Jonah MacDonald was awarded the male sports award after his selection for shot put at the state championships while the female trophy went to Johanna Kelly
The girls’ award was so close it came down to performances at the district and zone swimming trials
Encouragement awards went to Hayley Smart for her performance in the pool and Clayton Carlson for having a go at many sports.
