Dampier Pri­mary School was thrilled to win the Kar­ratha in­ter­school ath­let­ics car­ni­val on Fri­day, Septem­ber 9.

Prin­ci­pal Luke Bre­man said Dampier stu­dents had done well to win in sev­eral cat­e­gories in the car­ni­val on Mil­lars Well Oval, on their way to tak­ing out the over­all award for best prize.

“Jumps and throws were fan­tas­tic and (so was) our team game work as well,” he said. “We’re over the moon. “Con­sid­er­ing we’re a third of the size of the other schools, it’s amazing.”

Dampier was the small­est school in the com­pe­ti­tion, which in­volved pri­mary schools across the City of Kar­ratha area.

Mil­lars Well Pri­mary School hosted the day and Wick­ham Pri­mary School was the win­ner of the most im­proved shield.

Mr Bre­man said Dampier stu­dents and staff had been train­ing hard with two one-hour ses­sions each week and daily fit­ness ses­sions.

Last year, the school fin­ished in sev­enth po­si­tion.
