Pete’s Sports Report
As always, very busy and wonderful moments in Physical Education and Outdoors. Term 3 saw all our students display outstanding sportsmanship, resilience, and persistence in their sporting endeavours. Major events included the Penbank Year 3-6 Athletics Day, Camps (Sovereign Hill, Wugubank and Alexandra), AFL Roadshow clinics, Fathers and Friends Breakfast, and the Mornington District Athletics Carnival.
Term 4 will see some more exciting occasions at Penbank. Prep to Year 5 students have commenced swimming lessons at Pelican Park Recreation Centre.
Physical Education will focus on net sports (volleyball, badminton, table tennis), golf and invasion games. Friday afternoon sports sessions will include the much-anticipated Friday Frenzy, which is an internal friendly sport-based round robin competition.
It has also been amazing to see the development of the Prep and Year 1s in their weekly PMP lessons.
I would like to congratulate our wonderful Athletics Team who participated in the Mornington District Athletics Carnival. Special mention to Mavis Laverty (1st U11 Shot Put and 200m), Mimi Pullar (2nd U11 Hurdles), Max Rogut (2nd U9/10 MC Long Jump) and Sammy Nyguen-Brown (7th U9/10 Triple Jump) who represented Penbank at the Southern Peninsula Division Athletics Carnival. We wish Mavis, Mimi and Max all the best at the South East Regional Athletics Carnival this week.
It is wonderful to feel our community coming back together at all these events.
Thank you to everyone who has assisted, supported, contributed, and encouraged our Physical Education and Outdoors programs. I cannot put into words how much I appreciate the support.
