What a sensational day, well done to the Sharks, who smashed the Eagles.
Central Yorke School students are to be congratulated for their efforts and attitude on sports day. It was great to see so many students trying their hardest in both the individual and team events, supporting and cheering on their team, encouraging individuals and filling in wherever they could. This year we had the highest number of students competing in events for quite some time. It was amazing to see all of the talent on show. One of the highlights of the day was watching the competition between the houses. This level of competitiveness is awesome.
A huge thank you to Mr Jason Clifford, the CYS staff and the members of the Sports Committee for all they did to bring about the sports day. The day ran very smoothly, and this is of course due to all the quality planning and preparation before the event. Thank you to CYS School Canteen staff who made sure everyone was well fed and most importantly well hydrated.
A special mention to our House Captains and Vice Captains, who showed our true R-12 ness with all the work they did with all of the students. Whether it was individual, team or tabloid events, it was great to see and I had many positive comments from parents on the day. A huge highlight of the day was again the staff, student, parent Wheel and Ball race. Although the teachers weren’t victorious, it was good to see that there were no hamstring injuries.
To our parents, and the wider school community, a huge thank you for your support and encouragement. We had a lot of parents volunteer to help at all the different athletic events and the day would not have been a success without you.
The fact that we had the majority of our school population turn up on the day, well prepared and willing to stay right to the end says a lot about the support we have at the school.
Congratulations to all once again. Bring on both the Primary and Secondary Interschool competitions. The challenge for us is to see if we can go back to back on 2018!
