On Monday the 24th of October, Harvey Anderson (5ED) and Jack Schneidereit (6TN) competed in the State Schools Athletics event held at the Albert Park Athletics complex. Both of the boys competed incredibly well against the best students in Victoria for their given events. Jack qualified for the finals in both the 100m and 200m sprint events. In the final for the 100m event he came 6th and for the 200m final he came so close to winning a medal finishing in 4th place. Harvey competed in the 800m event and ran his personal best time to come in at 3rd place. Both boys should be incredibly proud of their efforts. We sure are!! To top things off Harvey Anderson has been selected to represent Victoria in our National team which will compete at Sydney, Homebush on the 24th-29th of November against the best junior athletes from all over Australia. He is so excited to have this amazing opportunity. Way to go Harvey!

Sensational effort boys and we hope that you run your best times next week.
Well done to all of our runners who competed at the Division Cross Country. Your determination and commitment to training certainly paid off with some great results achieved.

Good luck Adele and Jaimee-Lee – this is a fantastic achievement!
What an extravaganza it was! Well done to all of our talented students who participated in our school production last week. You all looked amazing and your dancing was sensational. It was a very entertaining morning that was enjoyed by all. You should all be very proud of yourselves. A big thank you to Shaun and Kiandra for all the work they put into choreographing the routines also. What a great day!

The Edwin Flack District Athletics Carnival turned out to be a very cold and wet day but it certainly did nothing to dampen the spirits of our students, or take the shine off their amazing performances! We now have approximately 30 children going on to compete at the Casey North Division Athletics Carnival which will be held on Wednesday, 18th September at Casey Fields Athletics Track. This is an outstanding result for our school and as always our children can be congratulated for this acheivement and also commended for their exemplary behaviour and sportsmanship on the day. It was lovely to see our children shaking hands with competitors at the end of races and trying hard to do their very best in all events. Good luck to all the children who will be competing at the Division Carnival.
The Oatlands Athletic Trials were held last Monday, 29th July on what turned out to be a glorious sunny day! Well done to all students involved for your excellent behaviour and enthusiasm.

We now have over 50 children who will go on to represent Oatlands Primary School at the Edwin Flack District Athletics Carnival, which will be held at the Casey Fields Athletics Track on Monday, 19th August.
Oatlands Primary School would like to congratulate all students who braved extremely wet, cold and muddy conditions to compete at the Regional Cross Country Trials held on Monday. Competition was tough as all participants at this event represented the most elite athletes from across the region. All students involved are to be commended on their performances and for making it through this far. A special congratulations goes to Kye Arthurson who finished in 10th place, securing him a position in the State Cross Country Championships and Adele Hanley who finished 13th, which makes her an emergency for this event. This is an amazing achievement. Well done!
The annual Oatlands Athletics Trials will take place on Monday 29th July at Casey Fields Athletic Complex. As well as a fun sports day, this event will be used as qualification for our school team (for year 4-6 students only), who will go on to compete against other schools in the Edwin Flack District. Students have been busy preparing for the day during their P.E classes this term and grade 3 children are very excited about participating in their first Athletics Trials! As you can see by the look of concentration and determination on their faces, they have all been trying very hard to master their hurdling techniques.
