Year 3-6 Athletics Carnival Wrap up
The last week of Term 2 opened with an incredible exposé of our senior students' athletic prowess. Perfectly prepared grounds (thank you so much Mrs Dickens and Mr KcKellar) awaited our students and with the wonderful support of all staff and parents, we got underway just after 7:00am with our 800m events.
Several hours later, after multiple events, exhilarating finishes, record breaking and personal best performances, heartbreaking losses and everything in between, we wrapped up our day with the relay events.
A huge thank you to all students for their wonderful attitude and behaviours, all staff for their good grace and expertise in coordinating and conducting events, our incredible parent body for both supporting their children and stepping into various official roles to enable the carnival to run smoothly and to schedule and finally, to the wonderful Grace Lutheran College students and staff who, so capably and graciously, supported our event.
Results were incredibly close in every category.
Overall – 1st Gregor 2628 points; 2nd Archer 2623; 3rd Jeffreys 2619

A new format greeted our well-prepared and enthused junior students on the last day of Term 2. A magnificent day, brilliant support from all staff and Year 6 students and an incredible turn out from our amazing parents/family/friends group ensured a wonderful day of fun, participation and achievement. Thank you one and all for your good grace and understanding of the altered format.
