Term 2 was a massive term for Sport at Kew with 29 different sporting events taking place, ranging from our school Athletics Carnival to Region and State competitions. Here is an overview of some of the success we’ve experienced as a school this term.
We kickstarted day 1 of term 2 with our Athletics Carnival out at Doncaster Athletics Track. The sun was shining which made for a glorious day filled with high levels of competition and fun to be had. Barker was the winning House for the day followed by Cotham, Wilsmere and Boroondara respectively. We’ve had over 100 students qualify to participate in Division Athletics at the start of term 3.
Qualifying students participated in Division and Region cross country during term 2. We experienced a high level of success at the Division level with almost half of the participating students qualifying for region. Our years 7 and 9 female students were the winning teams at division cross country, with our year 9 female team (Holly P, Ruby F and Casey C) taking out the title as 15 Female champions as a team at Region. Six students across years 7 to 11 will be representing Kew at State Cross Country at the start of July.
With high levels of participation across term 2 interschool sport, Kew was well represented in a range of sports and with a number of teams going through to the next round. Winning teams that progressed through to Region include our Intermediate and Junior Girls teams for AFL and our Intermediate Girls Netball team. We also had a number of teams finish as runners up on their interschool sport day including our teams for Year 7 Girls Softball, Year 7 Boys Baseball, Year 7 Boys Badminton, Years 7 and 8 Girls Netball teams and Intermediate Boys Soccer. Well done to all students that participated in Sport during term 2.
