I look forward to a wonderful morning and can’t wait to see all students compete with a positive attitude and excellent sportsmanship!

On Thursday 14 June, our Senior Athletics Carnival for Years 2-6 will be held at Bowden Park, Geebung. Students will be placed into races and events for the carnival, based on the times and measurements made during PE lessons. All students will compete in the following events: 
- 60m/80m/100m Sprint (depending on age group)

There will also be House relays, with students selected based on their sprint times in PE lessons, as well as an optional 800m event held at school on Tuesday 12 June.
