PSSA Athletics Carnival

Congratulations Isabella and Fergus at the NSW PSSA Athletics Championships

On Wednesday 6th November, two St Thomas students, Isabella B (year 6) and Fergus B (year 4) represented Polding at the NSW PSSA Athletics Championships at Homebush.

Isabella competed in the 12 year girls 100m, making it through to the semi finals and achieving her best PB ever! In addition to this, due to Isabella’s continued involvement in sport at Polding level in recent years, Isabella had the privilege of leading Polding into the opening ceremony as flag bearer which was a huge highlight in her sporting experiences. Year 6 even watched her live from their classroom!

Fergus competed in the 10 years boys high jump. For someone who has no previous experience in high jump, to make it to State level with no training and to finish 13th overall has made him realise he might start pursuing further interest in high jump next year.

Congratulations to both students on a fantastic result in Athletics this year. Your sportsmanship and dedication has been evident throughout and you should both be extremely proud of your achievements.
