On Thursday 22nd November, over 500 children converged on Margaret Griffen Park in Lynfield for their annual Central Primary Zone athletics competition. The organisers come every year to the park for its excellent capacity for both the events and for the space for parents to watch their children enjoy their sport.
Roskill South Athletic Club for whom the fields are home, lend their equipment for the day, including jump mats, discus, shot put and track equipment.
With ten central schools competing on the day, the top three placing schools on the day were (in order), Owairaka, Balmoral and Maungawhau. Most rewarding of all, the children had a fun and enjoyable day.
Considering athletics for your child? Roskill South Athletics Club is a Junior Track and Field club that aims to develop the skills of all junior athletes from 2-16 years, for personal enjoyment and competitive preparation.
