Little Athletics is a fantastic way to keep fit and builds the foundation skills of running, jumping and throwing, which are all transferable to other sports. If your child is interested in participating in Little Athletics outside of school, Joondalup Little Athletics Centre is a fantastic local club –  http://www.jlac.org.au The WA Little Athletics season usually runs from October until March.

If your child is going to be absent on Friday 20 August, please contact Hannah Uglow ASAP at hannah.uglow@ststephens.wa.edu.au, as this helps with the planning of our event.

We look forward to seeing our students participate in the 2021 Interhouse Athletics Carnival!
