Mount Archer State School has recently enjoyed great success in the sporting arena.
At the District Athletics Carnival, our school excelled in all sporting categories. The athletics team claimed the Boys Trophy, Girls Trophy and Aggregate Trophy of the carnival for “A” Schools (schools with an enrolment over 450). There is no doubt that great sportsmanship, personal endeavour and exemplary behaviour contributed to the end result. We are very proud of all the students who participated and thank the staff who prepared the students and attended on the day.
At the EQ Regional Shield carnival, the Mount Archer State School netball team surpassed all previous years to finish as undefeated winners of their pool. The team went on to compete for the prestigious Shield Trophy. The team was defeated in the finals to finish 4th overall. Congratulations and very well done, girls. It was a great effort from the entire team!
Congratulations also need to be extended to the Mount Archer Girls Soccer Team who finished the season as runners up. In a closely fought grand final the girls were narrowly defeated 2-1 by St Anthony’s Primary School. The team had an excellent season with more wins than loses. The girls have shown improvement in their skills and most importantly, all of their games have been played in a positive spirit and with wonderful sportsmanship.
