Glorious Conditions for Touch Footy

On a gloriously sunny August 24th, an eager group of Year 8/9 students travelled to Tumby Bay for the annual touch football carnival. Cowell Area School attended for the first time and helped make the event a spectacular day of sport. Other participating teams included St. Joseph’s School, Navigator College and Tumby Bay Area School.

The stand out positive for the day – aside from children enjoying the healthiness that comes with being physically active – was the sportsmanship demonstrated by all involved.

The PLHS students were exemplary in their positive communication and attitude to one another and were a great source of pride for the staff in attendance. The skills on show were also impressive in passages; our boys in particular, were unlucky not to emerge victorious overall.
