Thank you to Moritz of 5AB for this comprehensive softball report!
After the Kew Primary softball mixed team easily won the district competition, we had to wait a long time for the next stage which was division. After some last minute practice sessions before school, on Tuesday the 16th of October we finally went to division at Myrtle Park. We went up against three other schools, Ashburton Primary, Greythorn Primary and Balwyn Primary for a place at Regionals. Division was a bit more difficult because there were more rules that we weren’t used to playing by, for example, stealing bases. Continue reading
I have a friend who doesn’t know how to ride a bike. It might not seem like a big deal – when you’ve reached 50-years-old and got by without riding, you could safely assume that you’ll manage to bypass bike-riding events for the next few decades. However, as my friend occasionally says, learning to ride represents more – it’s a childhood rite-of-passage, it’s about conquering fear, it’s feeling the wind in your hair.
I’ve encouraged my friend to learn to ride as an adult – perhaps some secret lessons at Macleay Park while the kids are at school?!. She cites the prospect of wobbling along, falling off, feeling out of control, and awkward dismounts as a middle-age-broken-bone-waiting-to-happen but I reckon that given she talks about, she’s psyching herself up – after all, we never stop learning.
The Kew Primary bike education program caters for riders of all skill levels – some kids learn to ride over the five-week program, while others fine-tune their skills. Diamanto Pantazis tells us more about the program.

Thank you to Theodore and Elika from 5AB for their delightful report on Athletics Day.
Every year, many children at Kew PS tend to get excited when they hear the words Athletics Day and this year was no different! There was much fear that the weather would interfere but luckily for us, the sun shone for most of the day. Continue reading
The first major sporting event at Kew PS in 2018 was the annual House Swimming Carnival. It was fantastic to see everyone in their house colours whilst cheering, chanting and supporting each other. Throughout the day the performances in the pool accurately reflected the schools motto ‘Be Worthy’ as everyone put 100% into every event they were competing in. Continue reading
It has been another big sporting term at Kew Primary School. I was so proud of all our sporting accomplishments but in particular the highlight was our House Cross Country. Also the gymnastics program across the school has been a success, especially using the new equipment in lessons. I also really enjoyed hearing from our students about their exciting experiences in sport. Below are just three of our main events this term, thank-you Feargus, Amelie and Joanne for sharing your thoughts.
Year 6 Hooptime
by Feargus 6CA
As soon as the Grade 6’s heard that Hoop Time Basketball was coming up, it was all that everyone was talking about. Questions rushed through our minds. What team were we going to get in? Would we have our friends in our team? Would we get to division? Continue reading
Thank you to Maia from 3/4K for this week’s post –
When I first heard that Kew Primary School would be doing Little Devils Circus Skills, I was immediately excited and was chatting non-stop with my friend about how much fun it will be. Continue reading
