Basketball: Franklin Zone Days

Well done to our year 7-8 Mixed Team who competed on Wednesday 28th September. Many parents have commented on how well they played and what great sportsmanship they had. Overall, the team came second, which is fabulous. Only one team beat them all day and by the third game the score difference was very close. Thanks to David Shoemark, Karlene Vare and Jurjen Haitsma for transporting and supervising on the day.

The Year 5-6 boys competed on Tuesday 27th September. Thanks to Alex Cussen and Farisha Hussein for transporting and supervising the students on the day.
