Broadmeadows District Athletics

On Thursday 16th August 2018, Mrs Selamet, Steve, Cigdem and Miss Monkcom along with 35 students from grades 3-6 attended the Broadmeadows District Athletics at Meadowglen International Athletics Stadium in Epping.

The students had worked hard in the weeks prior to prepare for the big day. All of the hard work paid off, and the students represented both themselves and Bethal Primary School in such a fantastic way. We received many 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons throughout the day, and many students achieved their goal or Personal Best (PB)!

I was one very stressed teacher throughout the day, running and overseeing the event for the first time, but these 35 amazing students and 3 extremely helpful adults made my day a breeze.

A special congratulations to Rosemary (100m sprint and long jump) and Ascia (200m sprint), who will be representing The Broadmeadows District, Bethal PS and themselves at the Woodlands Division Athletics at Meadowglen on Monday 10th September 2018. We wish you the best of luck and know you will do your very best!

Thank you for making all of the hard work, lunches missed and stress, worth it. I couldn’t be prouder of each and everyone of you!
