Stu­dent skills on show in cup ac­tion

Pilbara News - - Pilbara | Sport - Tay­lar Amonini

Schools across the Pil­bara swooped into Port Hed­land for the V Swans Hed­land Cup to com­pete in a three-day com­pe­ti­tion

Hosted by Hed­land Se­nior High School, the three-day foot­ball and net­ball car­ni­val drew chil­dren from New­man Se­nior High School, Kar­ratha Se­nior High School, St Luke’s Col­lege and Tom Price Se­nior High School to the town.

With two di­vi­sions on of­fer, Year 7, 8, 8 and 10 stu­dents had the op­por­tu­nity to test their skills, which they had been work­ing on within the Shoot­ing Goals and Kick­ing Goals pro­grams at V Swans.

V Swans ac­tive ed­u­ca­tion de­vel­op­ment man­ager Shane Beros said the event was a huge suc­cess.

“I think the way the Year 9s and 10s in all schools on the field and courts all per­formed was re­ally good,” Mr Beros said.

“It was a great at­mos­phere over the week.

“It was good to see the older stu­dents step up.

“All the kids re­ally used the op­por­tu­nity to not only put their prac­tice into ac­tion, but catch up with friends they don’t of­ten get to see, be­ing so far away from each other in the Pil­bara.”

The car­ni­val was also a great op­por­tu­nity for Hed­land Se­nior High School Up­per School Cer­tifi­cate II Sport Coach­ing stu­dents to coach and um­pire the Hed­land sides.

Both Hed­land foot­ball teams made it through to the fi­nals, with the Year 9 and 10s tak­ing home a shield in their di­vi­sion.

The Year 9 and 10s Shoot­ing Goals Net­ball team went through their di­vi­sion un­de­feated to claim the cup.
