North Haven Public School students Ethan Hensby and Adam Drewitt have represented the school at the NSW PSSA state athletics.
Ethan competed in the 13 year boys 100 metres while Adam was involved in the 11 year boys shot put.
Both achieved personal bests at the state titles held at Homebush.
Ethan ran 14.36 seconds in his heat, which qualified him for a place in the final.
In the final Ethan broke 14 seconds, running a very commendable 13.92 sec to finish in 8th place.
Adam threw a massive 10.96m - 1 metre further than his previous best - to finish 18th in the state.
What a great achievement for the two North Haven boys who are both relatively new to these events.
To qualify for the state carnival augers well for their future athletic careers.
Rotary service awards
The school population is congratulating Ciara Everden, Mia Lenane and Tom Spilsbury who received Rotary Junior Community Services Awards in recognition of their community service and engagement.
To qualify for this award students completed a rigorous project that involved:
10 consecutive weeks of community service;
Learning a new skill or enhancing an existing skill through a 10 hour self-improvement program;
A minimum of 2 hours per week physical/ recreation activity, and,
Engagement and reporting on 5 key social experiences: a community commemoration, a community meeting, a cultural exchange, a religious or spiritual experience and a cultural/ arts experience.
Attaining this award required a considerable commitment of time and effort, over two terms. The students gained much from the experience and we are super proud of their efforts.
Meanwhile K-2 students visited Timbertown at Wauchope recently.
Although it had been raining for a few days prior, on the day the weather cleared and we were able to go ahead with the excursion.
Students enjoyed a ride on the steam train, panned for gems, watched the blacksmith ply his trade and lots more fun activities.
It was a great day.
