State Football Trials Update

Congratulations to Riley H who successfully progressed though to the top 40 students in the Victorian School Boys Australian Rules Football Trials. We at Pt Lonsdale Primary School (and his family I’m sure) are very impressed by his efforts and show of persistence in making it through the selection process which looked at his fitness, skills, understanding of the game along with his ability to work with others.

Well Done Riley!!

Whole School Cross Country – Tuesday April 24th

Wow! Is it this time of year already?

Our Cross Country will be held in the second week of term two (the day before ANZAC Day). This is a good opportunity for students to work on achieving their personal best results and improve on their efforts from last year. Our Junior school will be competing in their mini CC. I wish everyone the best of luck.

Our School Captains and House Captains will be roaming the Junior course and providing support.

Students are encouraged to prepare themselves for the event by running with friends or family members. This ties in with the requirements of the Premiers Active Families Challenge 2012.

This is a great lead up into preparing upper school students for the Peninsula District CC to Be held later in the term.

Run with Thomas

On Sunday Ms Henderson went to the Run with Thomas to support the Kids + Charity. While I was there I ran into many of our students contributing to the day. Helen and Christian said “hello” and were busy looking at all the stalls. There were many kids participating in the event which was great to see. Many children ran so fast that they beat Thomas back to the station.

Does anyone know who the KIDS+ charity helps in the community?

Here is Charlie and Bill after they participated in the 5 year old age group.

Well done Bill and Charlie.
