Playing in the big league!

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

Swimming Sports 2018

House Swimming

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

And they’re racing…

At Hays Paddock on the 25th May eight schools competed at the Kew District Cross Country. It was a calm, cool day with no rain, prefect conditions for running. This event was a great celebration of endurance running and sportsmanship. All competitors shook hands at the start of the race and wished their rival runners all the best for the run.
Parents from all schools were dotted around the course at checkpoints. This ensured that the runners were safe and cross country rules are enforced. The parents cheered all the competitors along, which I am sure helped spur on a few runners through some tough moments of their race. Well done to Kerry Lomas who was on the bike for all races, leading the runners around Hays Paddock. Continue reading

And they’re racing!

We could not have asked for a better day for last week’s House Cross Country meet. While Mr Penson and Kerry limbered up ahead of their participation in every race, Clare made sure the competitors were physically and psychologically ready to run. I took careful note of her words of wisdom at the start of the U11 Boys race – “I want you to push out of your comfort zone. I’m not asking you to vomit but work hard.” (Excellent advice – I’ll remember this next time I go out for yum cha).

Over to Clare Connor for the results –

It’s kick-off time for the new oval!

We’ve watched our oval take its new shape over the past few months. James Penson tells the story in full –

oval-5You may have noticed that across the other side of the globe, there has been much talk about who will win the race into the Oval Office. However much closer to home, there has been even more talk and excitement about our own oval! Continue reading
