This would not have been possible without the help of the many parents who provided supervision of teams and support on the day. Big thank you to our athletics coach Ms. Malone who put in all the hard work in Valleymount today and to the class teachers for preparing them for their trials. It has been a fantastic week of sporting achievements for our school and we are very proud of all our pupils and staff who give up their time to promote sports/supervise and coach teams.
