Today’s Lightning Carnival was amazing. St Andrew’s students again represented the school with flying colours. All sports were fantastic, with Rugby, Soccer and Netball having a good share of wins, losses and draws. AFL again was outstanding, lead by Alison Campbell and managed to win the Freo Dockers Shield Grand final for the 4th year in a row.
From all reports from all teachers involved all, kids had a blast and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
The following students participated in the St Andrew’s Speak Up Final:
Taj Strachan, Sid Dillon, Tori Gallacher, Taj Callaghan, Rudraksha Brahmbhatt, Olivia Wesley, Brianna Neave, Mairead Stubberfield, Ariel Baker, Shanley Harrison, Grace Zanoli and Samantha Cabrera.
Presenting a wide range of topics, the students engaged their audience with clear, entertaining and informative speeches.
Congratulations to Grace Zanoli, Year 6, who was the overall winner with her speech on “Dad Jokes”.
