Today the Girls Softball, Boys Rounders and Girls Rounders teams played in the Templestowe District Summer Interschool Sport Finals. They made the final after an excellent Home and Away Season during Term 1. All students tried their best against very high quality competition.
Congratulations to the Girls Softball team who will now face the winner of the Doncaster District in the Division Final.
This morning, all students in Years 4-6 ventured to Templestowe Park to participate in the TPPS House Cross Country Carnival. 9/10 year olds completed 2 laps of a very hilly 1km course, whilst 11-13 year olds had to complete 3 laps. Not only were students running to earn valuable points for their house, the top ten place getters also earned themselves a place in the TPPS Cross Country Team, which will be running at the Templestowe District Cross Country Championships on Monday May 8th.
I would like to commend all students on their fantastic attitudes, resilience and perseverance, you all made your houses and selves proud. Congratulations to Chivers for winning back to back Cross Country Shields.
