The children assembled in Gosling Sports Hall to music from a school band.

Mayor, Councillor Lynne Sparks, launched the event and each school represented a country in the Gold Coast Games.

14 local sports clubs provided coaches to oversee the school leaders who did a great job ensuring the children learnt good skills and generally had fun.

At the end awards were given and each child had a leaflet on the local clubs where they could continue in these sports, click here for a copy: Sports Clubs Leaflet for Gold Coast Games.

Thanks to the WH School Sports Partnership for organising the event, the teachers, school leaders , club coaches and the many helpers.
