Queen’s Baton Relay Stops at PMACS

On Monday 26th February 2018, the School was honoured to be a School Stop for the Queen’s Baton Relay as it travelled through Perth on route to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Primary and Middle School students gathered on the Southern Oval waving their Australian flags to watch the baton exchange between Scott Guerini and Anthony Shields.

Scott founded Scott’s Great Walk for Telethon in 2010 when he was 4 years old and since then he has raised over $140,000. Mr Shields is the Principal of nearby Clarkson Primary School and has spent over 17 years working in education across the metropolitan and regional areas.

Senior School students watched the baton leave the School with Mr Shields and travel down Elliston Parade towards Quinns Road.

Our very own Katie Robertson (Year 12), a promising local athletics competitor, carried the baton for a time along Tapping Way, cheered on by her family and friends.

The Queen’s Baton carries a message from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II that calls the Commonwealth’s athletes to come together in peaceful and friendly competition. The Baton Relay began at Buckingham Palace on Commonwealth Day, Monday 13 March 2017. It will cover more than 230,000 kilometres in 388 days, making its way through the six Commonwealth regions of Africa, the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and Oceania.

Thank you to the families who came to watch the event. It was a momentous occasion for all involved. The Commonwealth Games will continue to be a topic of much interest and discussion throughout the School in the lead up to the Games from 4th to 15th April 2018.
