Year 7-12 Inter-House Cross Country Carnival
Thursday 31 March was the Year 7-12 Inter-House Cross Country carnival. This year the course would see the students complete a lap around the beautiful College sporting fields, before heading out of the school gates. Once out of the gates, the students navigated their way around Coolamon oval, running along the footpath and cheered on by the staff stationed around the course. Re-entering the College ground via the gate on the back side of the ovals, students completed three quarters of a lap around the College sporting fields, before being direct down the finish shoot and under the inflatable finish line archway.
Before the races the weather supplied a little rain, but by the time the start of the carnival came around the skies were clear, the sun was out and we were truly blessed with a sunny day and a slight cooling breeze.
Whilst we recognise the champion athletes in each of the races, all runners/walkers crossing the finish line within the 30-minute time cap received points towards the final house shield totals. This meant that participation and house spirit was truly at the forefront of the days events.
The following runners were successful in finishing as Champions for their age groups;
