Kody Az­zopardi streaks to­wards the fin­ish line at last week’s Mans­field Pri­mary School ath­let­ics day.

THE Mans­field Pri­mary School held their an­nual ath­let­ics car­ni­val last Thurs­day, and the weather couldn’t have been bet­ter.

Stu­dents from prep to grade six got in­volved, with some ring-in help pro­vided by Mans­field Sec­ondary Col­lege stu­dents.

Whether it was fly­ing over the hur­dles, leap­ing the high-jump or sprint­ing the 100 me­tre dash, stu­dents were grate­ful for the op­por­tu­nity to get out­side and en­joy the last of the win­ter sun­shine.

GREAT DAY: It was the per­fect way to of­fi­cially say good­bye to win­ter last week when the Mans­field Pri­mary School held their ath­let­ics car­ni­val. Stu­dents were able to en­joy the sun­shine and stretch their legs ahead of spring.

RAIS­ING THE BAR: Talia Ap­ple­ton wows the crowd as she con­tin­ued to clear the high-jump lev­els.

UP AND OVER: One of the best spec­ta­tor events at any sports day is the high jump, as this stu­dent proves by clear­ing the me­tre-high bar.

MATES: Al­though not de­lib­er­ate, Cayd Tu­mai and Jack Tan­ner both came dressed in re­mark­ably sim­i­lar shades of Howitt blue.

GO STIR­LING: Erin Brond left no doubts as to her sport­ing loy­al­ties, dress­ing in bright yellow for the Mans­field Pri­mary School sports day.

STONGER IN RED: Team Buller cham­pi­ons Ash­ton Dean and Cody Az­zopardi.

BLUE BROTH­ERS: Ben Les and Dy­lan Lowry were all smiles for team Howitt.

GO BULLER: Wait­ing their turn to com­pete in the sprints were Gen­e­sis Petersen and Erin Lu­nam.

MAGIC MAN: Look­ing like he was go­ing to pull a first place out of his ma­gi­cian’s pocket was Seth Dean.

BEL­LOW FOR YELLOW: Zac Ap­pleby was all about show­ing his sup­port for Stir­ling dur­ing the Mans­field Pri­mary School ath­let­ics day.
