Good sports at end-of-term event
APPLETHORPE State School brought a successful term two to a close with a delightful afternoon of picnic sports and is now gearing up for a fantastically busy third term, with our annual School Sports Carnival – the highlight of our sporting pursuits, and preparations for our annual Prep Open Day under way.
Our last day of term two brought laughs aplenty, as staff and students alike enthusiastically took part in some traditional carnival sports, including the classic egg and spoon race, three-legged race and the sack race.
Our friendly competitors were overcome with bursts of laughter as they endeavoured to carry boiled eggs on spoons, amble down the sprint track strapped to their mate and keep their balance while bouncing along a 40m stretch in an unforgiving produce bag.
Ice creams all round were a welcome treat and ensured the longest term of the year ended on the highest of notes.
Our carnival games were a fun prelude to our annual School Sports Carnival taking place on Friday, August 3, which will see our sports houses – Marsh and Leslie – go head to head in a variety of exciting track and field events as well as fun tabloid events for our youngest of participants.
A highlight of our third term is our Prep Open Day and we look forward to welcoming all preschool aged children and their families to come along on Tuesday, August 21, from 9am-1pm and spend an enjoyable day with us.
Bring a piece of fruit, some morning tea, a water bottle and a hat!
Our Prep Open Day offers children and their families the opportunity to meet our highly experienced teachers, engage in an array of fun learning experiences and experience first-hand our nurturing, reassuring learning environment.
A tour of our delightful school grounds, including our well resourced and air-conditioned classrooms, will ensure our prospective Preps will not only be familiar with their future school, but will be eager for the fun to begin in 2019!
We are now welcoming applications for enrolment in Prep next year, with application forms and enrolment packs available from our school office.
