Athletics Day!!

Last Friday our whole school participated in Athletics Day. Although the sun didn’t come out all day it didn’t dampen anyone’s spirit. The day was full of everyone competing in track and field events. Great sportsman ship was showed by all students from different year levels! All encouraging each other to do their best.

All the 3/4‘s did such a great job in participating in the track and field events. Field events like Long jump, triple jump, high jump and discuss were well represented with enthusiastic athletes ready to do their best. The track events were no different. We may be waiting a little while for the grass to grow back as there were some very FAST sprinters!

A big Congratulations to Clare House for winning this years Athletics Day. Also well done to Francis House for winning the Spirit Award!

    Hi guys its Hunter here
    I’m just saying that athletics day was a wonderful day and I had lots of fun.
    My favorite field event was definitely long jump because I did really well.
    Also my favorite track event is obviously the batten relay because I’m with a group of students not just me.
    Also next year can the year 3s to 6s have hurdles because it’s a mixture of running and jumping which is two of my talents.

    Hi Michelle here,
    Well my favorite field event was all of them because they are challenging and they’re fun. My favorite track event was long jump because its fun. I saw some other people from different colors saying “Well done” or “Good job” when some people finished their race. For next year I think that we should really have hurdles because we haven’t had much hurdles.

    Hi it’s Marie, Liana’s mum
    Sports day was talked about at home by both my girls, they loved it. Liana especially enjoyed the 100 meter sprint, it was her favourite event. Well done Liana. It’s a shame I couldn’t be there this time to share the fun with you.
    Bye for now.

    Hi guys it’s Liana here,
    I loved athletics day because I got to run, support my team, cheer and spend the day outside. It was a great experience. My favourite event was the 100 metre sprint! I enjoyed the baton relay even though I fell over, but thanks to Amy Kennedy she stopped her race to help me up! Thanks Amy.

    See you guys later.

    Hello everyone,

    On athletics day everyone did a fantastic work on everything that Mr. Snell worked hard on. Good job for everyone who made it to the district. And if you didn’t, that’s okay because no-one is perfect so don’t worry if you don’t make it through just like me.

    Hello bloggers,
    Louisa here, my favorite field event on athletics day was long jump because I got to compete against my friends and it was a good challenge for me. My favorite track event was the baton relay because for that race our team won! We didn’t win the entire competition but at least we all had fun!
    Bye for now from Louisa.

    Hi everyone,

    It was fantastic to see the effort, enthusiasm and great sportsmanship shown by the whole school on Athletics Day. It was especially nice to hear the wonderful encouragement the older students gave the preps for their first school athletics carnival. Congratulations to Francis for winning the Spirit Award and to Clare for winning overall! Good luck to all the students representing St Mark’s at the District Athletics Carnival on Friday. Looking forward to another great day next year!

  13. Vallan says:

    Hi blogger’s it’s Vallan

    Athletics day was great. My favorite field event was shot put because you had to push the shot put as hard as you can. My favorite track event was 800 metre because i thought my friends were going to beat me but in the end I came first, what a relief. I noticed very great sportsmanship from Clare house, a lot of the time I saw them cheering on the other teams.

    Bye blogger’s

  21. Jack says:

    Hello fellow bloggers, it’s Jack here.

    On athletics day, the whole school participated in the field events, sprints and baton races.
    I chose triple jump and high jump as my events. In triple jump I came third but was not chosen as an emergency for the district team because there were enough people to compete.
    In high jump, I came third and was chosen to be a second emergency for the district team on Friday.
    I am very proud to support my school. It is held at Dolomore Oval in Mentone on Friday.
    Everyone made a great effort on the athletics day and good luck to the district teams.

    Jack out.

  23. Jacinta says:

    Hi guys Jacinta here,
    My favourite field event was 800m because I was competing against some very fast runners and also because it was pushing me to the limits. My favourite track event was 100m because you get to run your fastest and try your best to win! Overall everyone had a really good and fun day.

  24. Rolena says:

    Hi All
    I just want to say thank you to all the Green team members who tried very hard to win and cheer up the team. Very good effort from the green team I loved the loud cheers and the screaming that almost made me deaf. Thanks to all the teachers and helpers of the event, I really enjoyed the day! 🙂 🙂

  25. Cheyennes dad cedric says:

    It is so good to see that most of the students took part and compete at the games and I am sure this will help to build up the team sprit with the team mates and all the students in school, keep up the good work.

  26. Cheyenne says:

    Hi its Cheyenne here,
    Athletics day was really fun I really enjoyed it! it was good because instead of doing races and thing like that we did field events, such as high-jump, long jump etc. My favourite field event was high jump because I really enjoyed high jump and I was also doing it with my friends.

    Bye for now Cheyenne!
