Sports News

Last  month has been a particularly exciting time for Springsure State School athletes. We had a number of students participating in the Capricornia Track and Field Trials in Emerald on 21st and 22nd August. Our students had a terrific carnival with personal bests from Jaime-Lee (high jump), Jackson (triple and long jump), Mark (400m), Lana (400m), Shakaya (triple jump) and Nick (high jump). Brooke and Katelyn also performed very well in discus and shot put with highly competitive throws. A special congratulations to Jackson who finished second in long jump with a massive personal best. This effort was enough for Jackson to qualify for the Queensland Schools Athletics Championships in Brisbane from 12-14th October. We wish Jackson the best of luck in his preparation for the championships.

Our primary students have also been busy playing 9-a-side Rugby League at the Steven Bell Shield. We were fortunate enough to send two teams to the event and all of the players had a fantastic and fun day of Rugby League. Congratulations to Beau who was selected by the event convenor as Springsure's player of the carnival. The final flurry of school sport continues this Friday with the Central Highlands Rugby 7s. Springsure has nominated an U10's and U12's team and we eagerly await news of their successes at this carnival.

Aside from sport, I would like to congratulate Mrs Watson and all of the competitors in the Eisteddfod. It was fantastic to watch your wonderfully entertaining performances, both in the lead-up and at the event itself. A special congratulations to the guitar and drum group who performed at the Eisteddfod. Maclaine (drums), Lana (guitar) and Mark (guitar) achieved first place, Sean (guitar) and Rhys (bass) received second place and Riley (drums) was awarded a highly commended. This, along with the other wonderful results in verse speaking, instrumental and vocal sections contributed to wildly successful Eisteddfod results for Springsure State School.

Finally, as the extra-curricular calendar draws to a close this term I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to all of our parents who have supported our programs through volunteering, driving students to events and ensuring the seemingly-endless paperwork is returned on time.  Without your support our students would not be able to showcase the talent our community possesses.
