Esperance Christian School hosts six-school carnival

Primary students from across the region descended on the Esperance Greater Sports Ground on April 5.

Students from Esperance Christian Primary School, Scaddan Primary School, Condingup Primary School, Salmon Gums Primary School, Munglinup Primary School and Cascade Primary School competed in an inter-school carnival.

Munglinup and Cascade Primary School competed as a unified Mallee West team. 

Esperance Christian School Year 3/4 teacher Nick Saul said there were two shields in the carnival. 

Condingup Primary School won the Esperance Norseman Hodges Shield. 

The Handicap shield went to Mallee West. 

Mr Saul said the carnival was a "huge success".

"We were a little bit worried at the start of the day because of the weather, but it cleared up really well for a great day of competition for all the schools," he said.

"All the parent helpers and all the volunteers made the day run really smoothly and everyone had lots of fun."

Mr Saul said the students were good sports and cheered on each other.

"It was healthy competition and really good sportsmanship from all schools," he said.

Events on the day included 50, 75 and 100 metre running events and team games such as tunnel ball and flag races. 

The senior girls champion was a draw between Lucy Hallam from Scaddan and Bronagh Fowler from Condingup.

Mr Saul said the biggest point scorer was Lucas Perks from Condingup.
