On Wednesday the 13th of September our school competed in the Volleyball State Finals competition at Mars Sporting Complex. We had 15 year 6/7 students which involved one girls team and 2 boys teams. These teams performed very well at the metropolitan competition in August and therefore won a position into the State finals.

All 3 teams played well and worked very hard against strong opposition. Our girls team were close in all 3 games they played and unfortunately did not make it into the elimination finals. Our division 2 boys side played 3 games and ended up with 1 win and 2 losses against strong opposition. Our division 1 boys team had 1 win and 1 loss in their minor round and went down by 1 point in their elimination final.

I am very proud of how our students represented our school and played in the right spirit all day. Thank you to the parents who were able to help transport our students to and from the stadium and who came to watch to support the team.
