Students show sporting spirit

The sun was out in full force, but this did not deter the dedicated teams Jardine, Kennedy and Leichhardt and as they battled it out in the events which included high jump, long jump, running, shot put and javelin.
Many parents and grandparents came to support the students as they ran, jumped, hopped, leaped and threw with all their might.
