On Thursday 29th August, Holy Name Primary School took 49 competitors in Grade 4 – 6 to the Coburg Athletics Track to compete in the Preston District Primary School Sports Athletics Competition. For some students this was the first time competing in an Athletics competition, while others have been competing for many years. It was great to see such enthusiasm and effort and all students should be congratulated on a fine display of sportsmanship and team work. Congratulations to Jasmine in Grade 5 who finished 1st in Shot Put, Ben in Grade 5 who finished 2nd in High JumpĀ  and Jai in Grade 6 who finished second in Long Jump. Jai narrowly came second with a jump of 4.10m compared with the winner with jump of 4.11m. They will now proceed to the next round of Athletics, the Divisions.
