Bellerive Primary clinches fifth consecutive athletics carnival

FOR the fifth consecutive year, Bellerive Primary School has taken out first place in the Division A Interschool Athletics Carnival.

Held annually, the carnival sees schools from across southern Tasmania battle it out for the title, with Bellerive Primary School taking out first place this year with a score of 409 points.

This was closely followed by Howrah Primary School with 315 points and Lauderdale Primary School with 290 points.

Bellerive Primary School principal Steven Hay said this was a “wonderful achievement” for the school.

“It is a reflection of the talented athletes we have, as well as the preparation and hard work they complete before the carnival,” he said.

“This victory typifies the values of the school and the attitude of striving to do your best in all pursuits.

“Our students are very pleased with this ongoing success, but at all times continue to display sportsmanship and respect other competing schools.”

The students worked hard in preparation for the carnival, participating in three early morning sessions at Clarence High, which has a 400-metre track, as well as taking the time to train during school break times.

Mr Hay said as a Move Well Eat Well School, the carnival participation linked in well with this program.

“The carnival also provides substantial benefits of confidence, achievement, sense of self-belonging and participation, which then spills over to other areas of curriculum and in the students’ personal development,” he said.
