On Friday 1st June children from Seaford Park Primary School went to Ballam Park to compete against district schools at running events.


Our students were selected to participate by competing against each other in trials at school.


Ballam Park is a large running track in Karingal. It was also used for the field events. When we arrived we exited the bus and walked across the oval to our selected area.  We dropped our bags and began warming up for our races.


Hurdles were first, and then the running races began.


All of the students that came to the track events were trying their hardest, were on their best behaviour, and showed that they tried even when not winning.


Dakota did extremely well in the 800m run for 12/13 year old girls in winning.  Akon also won her 800m in the 11 year old girls, and paced her race nicely.


Declan did well to win his heat of the 80m, and the 12/13 year old girls won their shuttle relay.


There were many other great results on the day, and many that didn’t win a ribbon proved that they were able to succeed by putting in a brilliant effort. Lachlan not only helped his fellow competitors when they were injured, but ran in every event.  Lilly showed that her running has improved tremendously.


Thank you to the teachers and students who participated in these events. All of the students who participated enjoyed the day tremendously.
