Students from Gooloogong Public School were glued to their computers to watch the NSW School Sport Unit's live stream of the 2019 NSW Primary Schools Sports Association (NSWPSSA) Athletics Championship yesterday.

Four of the school's students, Archie McDonald, Harry McDonald, Grace McDonald and Tommy Williams, represented the school in the Norm and Elizabeth Austen Small Schools Trophy 4x100m relay.

Harry also represented the school in the junior boys' high jump.

Speaking before their trip to Sydney, the students said they were excited to be attending.

Acting Principal, Kate Lofthouse, congratulated the students on their fantastic effort.

"The kids were quietly confident that they would make it to state," she said.

"I know they worked hard and trained hard to get there. We've had a few PBs along the way, where people have really shown improvement.

"We wish them all the best of luck and we know they are capable of continuing to improve," she said.
