Students from eight local primary schools ran, threw and jumped in the Athletics Interschool champs, held on December 1 in Millwater.
The event was run by the Hibiscus Coast Athletics Club and appeared to be hitting the mark of combining fun and sporting achievement.
Organiser David Kayes says the enthusiasm was great to see, and there are some very talented young competitors.
Top prize overall for Year 5 was won by Kingsway, and Silverdale took the overall trophy for Year 6.
Zach Hamilton from Kingsway won the discus with an Interschool record of 24.42m, and he was also second in shot put and high jump.
Emma Chambers from Silverdale School also stood out, winning the long jump, 80m and 800m and coming second in high jump, while another Silverdale student, Michelle Catterall, won the shot put and long jump as well as coming third in the 80m.
