On Monday the 10th of August, 30 students represented Rockdale Public School at the District Botany Bay PSSA Athletic Championships, at Sylvania Waters Athletics Field.

The students trained well in preparation for their events and are to be commended on their efforts on the day. Special mention to the following students who all qualified for finals, with outstanding results in both track and field events: Adam Mi, Angelo O, Gladwin S and Sayal K (senior boys relay team) ran first in their heat, qualifying for a final on day 2. Gladwin S (High Jump, 200m and 800m), Rachael M (800m), Claire G (800m), Britteney K (800m) , Sayal K (800m), Adam M (200m) and Daniel J (800m). Congratulations and best of luck!

The student’s support for one another and for fellow competitors was a wonderful demonstration of sportsmanship witnessed throughout the day. Remaining events and finals will be held on Tuesday the 18th of August. Good luck to all our students competing!

Special thanks to Judy Miller for her involvement in preparation for the day.
