Last Friday the annual athletics carnival was held. We have had almost perfect weather for the first few weeks of the term but Friday it decided we would have a curve ball and throw in some cool breeze and give goose bumps to all the students. It did warm up towards the end of the day but was a little unbearable in the shade.

It was great to see so many students here and competing. After finalising events over the last four weeks our age champions were:

Many thanks to the tuckshop ladies who provided lunch for everyone on the day – it was very tasty. To the groundsmen for preparing the oval. To the parents and grandparents who attended on the day it was great to see many sitting and watching the events. To the teachers for their tireless efforts to allow the carnival to run smoothly. Without everyone working together as a team the carnival cannot take place.
