Two hearing-impaired pupils at Toongabbie West Public School have made Athletics Australia's National Championships for Athletes with a Disability — in the the school's first year in the competition.
Year 6 pupil Alofi Fepuleai will compete in discuss and shot put — his favourite event — at the national championships in Brisbane on November 22.
"I'm excited," he said.
Alofi threw the shot put 9.93 metres to land in the nationals.
His best discus throw was more than 21 metres.
Year 5 pupil Monica Hamal will compete in the 100 metre and 200 metre sprints as well as discus.
She said athletics had become a regular pastime for her only last year through school sport.
She threw a discus 16.67 metres at the state championships but said running events were her favourite.
Hearing support unit teacher Bruce Pickworth said the school was proud of both students' efforts.
The pair qualified for the next level of competition in all their events at the state championships.
Monica won discus and Alofi won the World Teachers' Day 2013 shot put and came second in discus.
