Our Senior School athletes showed determination last week, improving their overall performance percentage and finished fifth at the PSA Athletics Carnival. Director of Sport Anthony Lynch said it was the highest point score for the School in eight years.

“The Alcock Shield competition is the strongest school-based athletics competition in WA, driven by the best school-aged athletes in the State,” he said.

“The boys were terrific. They have dedicated a lot of time and energy to training which is paying off with some outstanding performances.”

The Preparatory School finished seventh at the JPSSA Athletics Carnival last week. Sportsmaster Brady Leckie said conditions were tough for the boys, whose performance improved as the day progressed.

“The pouring rain made it an ugly day for competition, however the boys did a good job with the conditions they were dealt,” Mr Leckie said.

“Our Year 4 boys performed very well in the track events, with some great victories for Mayowa Afolabi, Matthew Tan and Adam Dring.”
