Another Golden Day for Flinders House

Port Lincoln High School’s SportsDay for 2023 has been run and won.  After a two-year COVID-induced hiatus, it was the “Team in Gold” who again secured gold last Thursday – reigning (2021) champions Flinders house again narrowly claimed the overall victory from the “Green Machine” of Eyre house.  The battle for third was also tight, with the “Red Devils” of Grantham house ultimately proving too strong for the “Blue Crew” of Stamford house.

Thankfully, the early drizzle and overcast conditions gave way to fine, sunny weather throughout the day.  Adding to the spectacle, we were delighted to have parent/caregivers back on site to watch the proceedings, which even included some junior primary classes having a go at events.  As always, the costumes were colourful, the team spirit was high and the atmosphere was one of positive energy.

Congratulations go to Miss Yasmin Stewart, Mrs. Marianne Cox and the HPE Faculty for their organisation, to the staff for their facilitation of the event, and to all who participated in another enjoyable day of healthy competition.
