Succes in goalball competition
Two teams from Woy Woy South Public School participated in the 2019 NSW Goalball Knockout Shield on May 27.
Students were blindfolded and played with an audible ball.
Each team aimed to get the ball past the opposition and into their goal without using their sight.
The teams from the school performed exceptionally well, according to principal Mr Matt Barr.
The school's Year 4 team were undefeated in their run through the competition and finished first in their division, he said.
The Year 5 team placed second in their division.
The results saw both teams qualify for the NSW Goalball Championships to be held in August.
Goalball is a Paralympic and a Pacific School Games Sport played in over 120 countries around the world.
