Tuesday saw an exciting spectacle with the year 4 indoor athletics competition. The children were superb and competed in different athletic events. They showed fantastic teamwork and supported each other throughout the evening. Mimi- Jo fell in one race, picked herself up and continued with true grit and perseverance. She came back to win the race! Other highlights include Finley winning the chest press, Cassia winning the triple jump, Daisy and Lily winning the chest push and everyone for winning 9 out of the 12 races. They finished an incredible second overall and are hoping (fingers crossed) that it is enough to go through to the district finals.
The girls were absolutely phenomenal during a tournament at Leen Mills on Tuesday. We had three year 5’s and six year 4’s on our team and most of the other teams were made up of year 6’s. The girls drew 2 games out of 4 and Isabelle Morrison scored a wonderful goal after some great play by Cassia against Croft in a 1-1 draw. Isabelle Whitworth was in goal for the first time and overcame nerves to put in some brilliant performances. All of the girls showed outstanding sportsmanship throughout and displayed all our Hillside values, teamwork in particular. Miss McCormick and I are incredibly proud!
