INTERSCHOOL SPORT
Last Friday, Wattle Grove's Interschool Teams competed in Netball, Soccer and Football. Whilst the three Netball Teams, A1, A2 and B played hard, they were not able to take home a trophy this time. Better luck next time. The Football and Soccer Teams had more success, with all three teams taking home a trophy. Congratulations to all those teams, Soccer A, B and the Football Team. Many thanks to all the teachers, coaches and parents who went along to support the teams. Thank you to the umpires from Darling Range Sports College who did a great job on the day, as well. Thanks also to the Canteen Team who organised all the lunches for the six schools competing on the day.

They rotated through eight classes set up with lots of fun hands-on maths activities for them to meet the challenge and do together.

Congratulations to Rubie in Room 31 and her assistant Stephanie, who did a marvellous job to sell 100 Roses and raise over $500 for Cystic Fibrosis Research. They could have sold a lot more if they had them as there were a lot of students, parents and teachers who would have like to buy one. Perhaps they can order more for next year.
