Xavier 2737      Campion 2555           Regis 2370        Kostka 2260

For the first time in many years, the Senior School was met with a cool start to the annual House Athletics Carnival. Preparations began early, with the house captains, Emily Washer, Liam Cates, Lachlan Boots and James Perrotta working with their teams to decorate their tent areas and start to create their team spirit for the day.

The day began with a new initiative of a whole school warm up and then the house cheers which ensure that everyone was ready to go for the first round of events. As everyone worked their way through their event rotations, it was obvious that many students had decided to be involved in as many events on the day as they could. It was particularly impressive to see such a large contingent of Open Boys running the 800m in great spirit.

All age groups had to work together in the Tug of War event and there were many tight match ups that showed the true strength and spirit of the teams. The high jump events were a highlight once again with Ella Sloan, Tarun Jacob and Atem Ring displaying great talent.

After lunch, the Senior School moved to the Bourke Oval to join the Junior School for a combined relay and then a staff vs student tug of war challenge. Both events were wonderful spectacles with all students enjoying the display. Moving back up to the Baulderstone Oval, the final relays were ready race. There were some very quick runs across a variety of houses and this was also a great opportunity for the teams to show their true team spirit.

At the end of the day, after some final cheering, the following results were announced:
