Primary school students from across the Lower Mountains had an active and fun day of cheering, playing - and then more cheering - at the annual Winmalee Cup School Sports Carnival on June 20.

Dozens of teams of students in Years 3 to 6 from both public and private primary schools displayed skills and good sportsmanship in equal measures on the playing fields at Summerhayes Park.

The sports played were soccer, netball and Newcombe ball, which is similar to volleyball but players can throw and catch the ball.

Winmalee Public School planned and hosted the popular annual sports carnival and students and teachers from all participating schools spent many lunch breaks and put in sessions before and even after school in the lead-up to train teams.

Students from Winmalee High School also played a part by volunteering to referee games on the day.

St Thomas Aquinas Primary School at Springwood won the Winmalee Cup.
