Tuesday 14 June
After a number of false starts due to adverse weather conditions the competitive athletics carnival was held at Jubilee Park today for all competitors from 8 - 18 years old. The sun didn't make many appearances, but the rain and wind held off and the day was a great success.
Mrs Vanessa Vidler, Sports Coordinator Junior School, enjoyed the combined event, "It was a wonderful day of competition with opportunities to show House spirit and sportsmanship. Everyone participated to the best of their ability and the staff were so pleased with how the students and spectators encouraged and spurred their school mates on!"
The encouragement of fellow students was also noted by Mrs Ali Owers, Senior Teacher in charge of external sport, "It was so lovely to hear the cheering from the sidelines as students urged on their classmates and supported their Houses."
"It was also impressive to see the commitment of the Union players who, between games, would race back to participate in track and field events."
The College Athletics Carnival was held adjacent to the Rugby 7s Gala Day which enabled participation in both events.
Thank you to the team of parents, students and staff who supported the BBQ and Pop Up Canteen for the day, raising money for the College Compassion Sponsor Child, Chrifly. It was wonderful to have so many people cooking, serving and supporting the stall.
