The last week has been very successful for girls sport at TPPS. Last Friday, the girls soccer team played against Serpell in the Templestowe District Final. The game was intense from the first kick off, with Templestowe Park winning 3-0, earning a place in the Manningham Division Final against Doncaster Gardens to be played on Monday 7th August. Following up last week's success, today the girls netball team played their Manningham Division Final against Donvale Primary School. The girls played flawlessly yet again and were comfortable 28 - 19 winners, earning a place in the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Finals on Wednesday 23rd August.
Last week, Grade 3 - 6 students started practicing track and field events in preparation for the TPPS House Athletics Carnival to be held at Doncaster Athletics Track on Tuesday 15th August. Over the next few weeks they will attempt shot put, discus, long jump, triple jump, high jump, hurdles and relay change overs. Please keep your eyes on Compass, as the event will be posted very shortly.
Today the foundation students started their PMP program which will run over the course of Term 3. The PMP Program involves a variety of activities that help students develop their balancing, spacial awareness and coordination. A big thank you to all the parent helpers who will be assisting with the program.
