After last year’s hiatus, the annual Athletics Carnival returned this year on Tuesday the 27th of April at Newport Athletics Track. Students competed from Years 7 to 11 and it was the first Athletics carnival for both our year 7 and year 8 students. Our four Houses, Centaur, Gryphon, Pegasus and Phoenix battled it out for this year’s Athletics title. Students wore their House colours proudly and competed in a range of track and field events.
The four Houses competed throughout the day and it became a very close race between Centaur and Phoenix Houses in particular. Everyone performed very well but in the end the House that won with a lead of only 18 points was Centaur House led by Mr M. Spiteri and Mr Martino, followed by Phoenix, coming in a close second.
A very big thank you must go to Mr Baker for organising the day and the many staff and student helpers that worked tirelessly to make the day a great success for all.
