Inter House Cross Country Carnival


Thursday 5th April saw the 2018 Inter House Cross Carnival take place under sunny skies and hot conditions. The morning session was filled with the Junior School divisions which have effectively doubled in size in 2018. The students coped with a large increase in distances due to structured training within Physical Education and extra training in their classes. The spirit and effort from students to push themselves and celebrate each others success was fantastic. 

The parent support and atmosphere was also brilliant and we would like to encourage this presence and enthusiasm from our parent group to continue in carnivals moving forward.

The final tally for the Junior School Cross Country Carnival read;
Salvado                306
Frayne                  278
Ozanam                268
McCormack         228
The afternoon saw the focus shift to the Middle and Senior School Carnival with our growth in numbers meaning over 100 students competing in each race. Students attacked the 3.1km course with great effort and the level of House Spirit was easily recognisable with the colour and sounds coming from the House Bays being impossible to miss.
The final tally for the Middle and Senior School Cross Country Carnival read;
McCormack          600
Ozanam                 536
Frayne                   516
Salvado                 436
Congratulations to McCormack and Salvado as the winning Houses and to all students who challenged themselves on the day. Our focus now turns to the Cross Country Carnivals at Inter School level in the ACC for the Middle and Senior School students and in the CPSSA for the Junior School Students.
Special thanks to entire staff for their work in making the day run as smoothly as possible.
