The Georges River PSSA Athletics Carnivals were held over two Mondays 19/8 & 26/8. In the weeks leading up to the carnival, it was wonderful to see the enthusiasm of our students, eager to refine their skills. The high jump mats were a regular occurrence on the flats and relay batons, shot puts and the long jump pit all put to good use! And then….. the hard work paid off!
The 1500m was run for the first time at District level and Oatley students are now record holders in 4 out of the 6 age groups.
At the completion of the Field Carnival Lugarno Public School was ahead on points and even after the heats of the Track carnival Oatley was still trailing. Once the points had been added in for the finals, Oatley Public School was once again declared Champion School of the Georges River PSSA. That means that for 2019 OPS is the Champion School for Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics – what an amazing achievement.
Results for Oatley students are attached. These students will now form part of the Georges River Team that will participate at the Sydney East Carnival in Term 3. Notes will be issued to these students shortly.
