River School athletes make it into state semis

by Ann Donoghoe

 

River School students will contest the State Athletics Semi-Finals being held at ANZ Stadium on November 6.

The school’s year 5, 6 and 7 students took part in a local interstate competition with students from Glass House and Connondale Schools.    The event was organised by the Queensland Athletics Association with a strong emphasis on enjoyment and cooperation.   With no scores being read out along the way, students from the River School were surprised and delighted to discover not only had their girl’s team won their events but that the school had emerged as the overall winners of what was a fun and exciting morning of sports.   We are extremely proud of their achievements, especially given this is the first interschool competition the school has had the opportunity to engage in.

We would like to thank Dave and Brenton from the QLD Athletics Association for organising the event and Connondale and Glasshouse Schools for being such great sports and making the competition both enjoyable and challenging.

A huge thankyou goes to Maleny IGA who supported this local event and provided each participating school with a quality athletics kit. This comprehensive kit will be a valuable resource for our school.

Our thanks once again to Cameron & Tanya Outridge
of the Range News Newspaper for this story.
