FOUR primary school students are running into history as they compete in the PSSA State Athletics Carnival at Homebush this week.

Angus Waern, Cody Skennar, Kalani Blemmings and Taj Skennar, from Wooli Public School, are representing the North Coast region in the PP5 category.

Wooli principal Heather Wright said it was a massive achievement for the school, which has only 50 students.

"I've been here for 11 years so far and it's the first time I've seen us make it," Wright said.

"It's really exciting for the boys and the school as a whole."

Wright said the whole community got behind the team, which ran a raffle to raise money for the trip.

"The local pubs, hotels and businesses offered prizes and really got behind the boys," Wright said.

Wright thanked the school's learning support officer Fran Roberts, who helped the boys train for the races.

"She was fantastic for them," Wright said.

"They'd be down at the oval after school a few afternoons and would practice their changes."
