Little Athletics


As the Summer months approach so too do some of the Summer sports available in our community. Athletics has been a focus as part of our Physical Education and Sport provision at Featherbrook this year. It was a wonderful opportunity for many students to participate in our House Athletics as it offers something for everyone.

For those who enjoy field events such as high jump, shot put and long jump, there was plenty of opportunity to demonstrate strength and explosive power. For those who enjoy events that demand high cardiovascular and endurance capacity the 200m, 400m and 800m distance track events are more to their liking. 'Little Athletics' has been a community - based sports organisation that dates back to the 1960's, being very enduring against a backdrop of many more sports of choice.

As a past Little Athletics participant myself, as well as my own children enjoying the benefits of participating, it may be something that our Featherbrook families may wish to consider. Below are some details if families wish to find out more about Little Athletics.
