Athletics Carnival


On a stunning day on Friday 1 June the College held the annual Athletics Carnival at the newly-upgraded athletics track in Spring Gully.  The sun was shining, the atmosphere was electric and all students had a fantastic day.

Participation was the theme of the day, with almost all events open for anyone to try. Many students had a go at something new, challenging themselves and having a whole lot of fun.  Encouragement of each other was evident and another highlight of the day.

At an individual level, congratulations to the following students who broke records across the day.
