Get excited for the Athletics Carnival


​The 2017 Inter-House Athletics Carnival is almost here and the excitement is starting to build. Come the competition days on Wednesday 9 and Friday 11 August, our pre-carnival events will be a thing of the past and the final chance to gain vital house points will be upon us.

Students are reminded that house colours can be worn on Friday, however on Wednesday they must attend school in full school uniform and bring a change of clothes for the afternoon. Although students can wear their house colours, it is essential that they wear closed in shoes, a hat and sun-safe clothing. Regardless of the weather on the day, it is highly recommended that students bring a water bottle and regularly apply sunscreen. In the case of cold weather, remember to layer up and prepare for a day outdoors. Students can bring their own lunch or access the tuckshop at designated times throughout the day.

Parents are very welcome at our Athletics Carnival and we would love to see support for our students on the day. Events will start from 12.30pm Wednesday and 9.15am Friday and the presentations should be completed by 3.00pm Friday. A timetable of events and age groups throughout the carnival is available.

The carnival is shaping up to be a great day for everyone and, as with most years, the team that has the most participants, not merely the high achievers, will probably be crowned the victors. With that being said, attendance is the key on the day and we expect to see everyone here supporting their house.
