Smiling faces from both staff and students graced the morning. Mr Herringe and the Year 12’s had the BBQ cranking, while ‘Snow Cone Gary’ was busy making coffee’s for staff and snow cones for the boys.
The day began with the 1500 m races, into the 200 m races as we waited for all the staff and students to arrive at Adcock Park. On arrival, the carnival proper began with students moving from event to event in their age groups. Participation and having fun, was the order of the day and this was definitely adopted by the boys. The younger age groups participated with much enthusiasm and the senior boys backed this up with colour, costumes and a lot of fun.
Along the way we collected some fantastic individual achievements. With the following records being broken:
|Jay Clarke||Under 12, 100 m||Red||13.30 sec|
|Jay Clarke||Under 12, 200 m||Red||28.19 sec|
|Callum Sutton||Opens Discus||Red||48.34 m|
|Ethan Short||Opens Javelin||Blue||48.30 m|
At Friday’s assembly we also crowned the following Age Groups Champions:
At the end of the day, as everyone returned to the velodrome to watch the 100 m finals and the house relays – the race for the Champion House was still close. Eventually the results were:
Knights (Green) with 1381 points
Shanahan (Blue) with 1329 points
Doolan (White) with 1027 points
Spillane (Red) with 998 points
A big thank you to the staff for their effort and enthusiasm in making the carnival run smoothly and also, the boys who are to be commended on their fantastic behaviour and overall involvement in the day.
