Athletics Carnival

The sun certainly shone on Oatley Public School at the annual athletics carnival on Monday. It was a chilly morning but warmed up as the day progressed. This year we used automatic timing gates for the first time and it made a huge difference to the carnival. The races moved through quickly and the results very very accurate. The timing gates also reduced the need for timekeepers and judges which freed the teachers up for other events. We will definitely be using the timing gates in the future.
There were some amazing performances on the day but most pleasing was the behaviour and sportsmanship displayed by all our students. Results will be published shortly – we will definitely have a strong team representing OPS at the district carnival.
Thank you to the parents and spectators who attended the carnival – it certainly created a wonderful atmosphere for our students to compete in. A huge thanks also to the Got Game teachers who ran the preliminary field events prior to the carnival and to Rob (GG) for helping with the field events and tabloid activities on the day.
