Newlands took part in the annual Federation Sports Event. This year 6 schools and 7 teams competed for the Shield:
Newlands worked hard all day with our yr 1/2 team winning many of the different events. Showing we have an excellent group of young sports people coming through Newlands.
Our yr 3/4, and 2 x 5/6 Teams also competed really well and were successful in beating other schools to gain valuable points.
The Sprints at the end saw some nail biting finishes. Catherine from Yr 2 won the girls yr 1/2 Sprint and Skye from yr 6 drew to claim joint 1st in the girls yr 5/6 Sprint.
The final results saw Newlands finish in 2ND only 80 pts behind Oakwood. CONGRATULATIONS to all athletes who competed. It was a great day and a fantastic result.
