Athletics Carnival
A bright, warm sunny day greeted competitors for the College Athletics Carnival on Tuesday 11 June at Adcock Park. The warm weather had continued on from the long weekend and it certainly delivered for the carnival.

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:

Record Holder Event House Time/Distance
Jay Clarke Under 12, 100 m Red 13.30 sec
Jay Clarke Under 12, 200 m Red 28.19 sec
