PRIMARY SCHOOLS SHOW OFF LAWN BOWLS SKILLS
Sorrento Bowls Club staged the third annual Primary School Challenge today attracting double the number of players and schools from previous years with one hundred Year 5 and 6 children from eight peninsula schools showing off their skills at lawn bowls with great energy and enthusiasm. Participating schools with equally imaginative team names were:
Sorrento Primary School;
(Strikers, Thunder, Superstars & Sharks)
Tootgarook Primary School
(Yellow, Green & Frogs)
Rosebud Primary School,
(Rockets, Rabbits & Rascals)
Our Lady of Fatima Primary School Rosebud.
Red Hill Consolidated School
(Rockets, Renegades & Rebels)
Boneo Primary School
(Squirrels, Hampsters and Guinea Pigs)
St. Josephs Catholic School, Sorrento
(McIlroys & Wilkies)
Rye Primary School.
(Tigers, Bimmy Bowlers and Avalanches)
The results on the day did not reflect the standard of play of each team - as scores were based on shots up over 12 ends, so that only one team could take out the top slot for their school, which on Wednesday was:
St Josephs Catholic Primary School with 17 shots up
and the runners-up were:
Red Hill Consolidated Schoolwith 16 shots up
Scoring was remarkably close reflecting the keen determination and focus of all players.
Smaller size bowls were required and these were supplied by Club members sand Bowls Victoria.
The event was sponsored by Prentice Real Estate of Sorrento and Rye.
It was co-ordinated by Judith Mordech of Sorrento Bowls Club and Michelle Richens Physical Education teacher at Sorrento Primary School in collaboration with her P.E. colleagues at other schools to encourage children to select lawn bowls as an optional, non-contact winter sport.
The program involved 30 Sorrento Bowls Club members in prior coaching sessions and on-day supervision and will take place again in June 2018.

Congratulations to Sorrento Bowls superstars Nola Clark (skip), Doreen Winnett and Mary Boyle in representing Peninsula Casey in the Victorian State Womens Triples Championships. They had a great win against Eastern Ranges in the first round before going down to a strong Gippsland side in the next round. A magnificent achievement in making the state finals. Thanks also to the members who went along to support the team and commiserations to Pam Little who missed out on playing due to injury.
Stephanie's hen's party was a glamour event with all the girls dressed to the hilt for a fun time with barefoot bowls at Sorrento recently.
