We were blessed with a magnificent day for our annual Athletics Carnival down at Landy Field. Sunscreen was high on the agenda! Our students were eager to participate having missed last year’s Carnival due to COVID. The lines at the high jump area were overwhelming! Throwing also proved popular and the 100m was compulsory for the junior years. The student leaders did a terrific job encouraging students in their respective Houses to participate to gain valuable House points. The Year 12 students enjoyed their final Athletics Carnival running and jumping in various costumes. It was lovely to see brides and bananas running around the track!!
We had nine records broken on the day: Adasha Boxer Year 10 Shotput and Discus, Madeline Berginic Year 12 80m Hurdles, Chantelle Leslie-Hughes Year 8 80m Hurdles, Ida Laherty Year 9 100 metres and 400 metres, Lucy Marescuk Year 9 200m and 80m Hurdles. Year 12 Relay was also broken by Lelia. The Clonard Gift championship event had the top ten 100 metre runners for the day, Ida Laherty (Year 9) won this event in blistering time.
Finian won the Staff House relay.
Finian once again won the Championship.
