Year 6 and 7 students have enjoyed a great year of interschool sport playing against schools in the Glasshouse District on three Fridays of each term.
AFL was played this term and was a non-competitive event with no scores being kept. Students played nine a side games and learned a lot about AFL and improved greatly over the three weeks. The event was run by AFL Development Officers who umpired all the games and also ensured students gained a great understanding of the rules and game play.
The Year 7 teams were our stand out performers. The boys team had won all their games and had no goals scored against them until they met Maleny in the very last game. Maleny were also unbeaten and the game was a great spectacle and was played at a very high tempo. Maleny won but the game was a great challenge for both teams.
The Year 7 girls won all but two games dominating most games with speed, skills and size. They moved the ball up the field quickly with accurate kicking and some great marks were made. This led to many goals being kicked.
The Year 6 teams improved a lot over the three weeks having some great games winning many, but enjoying all.
Next year these Year 6 and 7 students will be part of the Middle School Interschool Sport program. We are proud of their efforts this year, winning five titles during the year and playing sport at a high level with fantastic sportsmanship from all players.
