Good sports take the field - finally - at West

BLUE skies smiled down on Gympie West State School when it finally held its Whole School Sports Day on Tuesday, July 19.

The event had been postponed twice due to the weather.

WITHAM CAPTAINS: Cody-Jon Gardner, Jessame Hand, Liyah Curtain, Joel Perry, Trinity Jackson and Kayne Walker.

Students, staff and parents turned out in their blue, yellow and green full of excitement for the day ahead.

The competition was close with all three teams putting in their best effort.

There were running races, ball games, field event rotations for the Preps and Years 1 and 2 and the day finished off with the teacher/students/parents relay which was one of the highlights of the day.

200 METRE GIRLS CHAMPIONS: Temple Barry, Kaydee Gibson, Grace Wills.

Congratulations to all who participated in the sports day - it was a great day.
