Downs Rugby Representative Trials – We wish our students trialling this weekend at the DOWNS RUGBY Representative Trials all the best.

Southern Downs and Border District Cross Country

It was wonderful to play host to this year’s Southern Downs and Border District Cross Country trials on Wednesday this week.

The 12 year old girls and boy’s teams are to be commended on their team efforts with 7 top ten placings out of 8 competitors. We are extremely proud of all who competed across all age groups.

Congratulations to Riley Wainwright, Samuel Bourke, Briana Groves, Hayley Wainwright who were all selected in the Southern Downs Team to contest the Darling Downs Championships on 21 May.

Congratulations also to Benjamin Carey, Ewan McFarland and Eliana Jones for their placings and to the several top 10 performances across many age groups. Team selections to attend the Darling Downs Championship have been notified via SEQTA.

We have the QCIS Championship on 17 May and we would really like to see a full complement of participants so we can mix it with the other schools. Training will continue as per the published schedules.

JAM Athletics Carnival

Due to the early staging of the National 10-12years Track and Field in Darwin this year all carnivals have been pushed forward and as such ours is no exception. As advertised on the calendar we are holding our JAM Athletics next Friday 10 May. Please look out for details of the day on SEQTA over the weekend if not already in your inbox. All students are pre-nominated as per their age group they turn in this calendar year, i.e. 10 years born 2009. All the children need to do is turn up and they can compete. Lessons have been carried out by Mr Fender, Mrs Dwan and myself to prepare the students in a variety of events and will continue to do so up until next Friday’s main event.
