Stu­dents fly high at V Swans Cup

Pilbara News - - News - Re­becca Parish

Hed­land Se­nior High School and sur­round­ing South Hed­land sport­ing grounds played host to five other Pil­bara schools as they con­verged in town for the 2016 V Swans Cup last week.

This year was the first time the event was run over two days, with New­man Se­nior High School, Kar­ratha Se­nior High School, St Luke’s Col­lege and Tom Price Se­nior High School all tak­ing part.

Year 7-10 stu­dents played foot­ball and net­ball in two di­vi­sions and V Swans Hed­land re­gional man­ager Tracey Swami said the car­ni­val was a huge suc­cess. “A par­tic­u­lar high­light for me was the in­volve­ment of our up­per school stu­dents across the foot­ball and net­ball comps,” she said.

“These stu­dents, who are com­plet­ing a Cer­tifi­cate II in Sport Coach­ing, put those skills to ac­tion by tak­ing on coach­ing and um­pir­ing roles within their schools.”

The event wrapped up last Thurs­day af­ter­noon.
