Athletics Carnival

This Friday, the 21st of July is our annual Athletics Carnival.  During this fun filled day, students from both Pomona and Cooroy campuses get the opportunity to participate in various athletics activities from javelin to 100 metre sprints.  Throughout the day, all age groups participate in athletics events as well extra contests such as the ‘Great Tunnel Ball Race’ which brings together each house competing for crucial points.  A best dressed and war cry competition is also involved along with circular relays and handicap races.  Activities such as long jump, shot put and distance running events are being held throughout the week due to the carnival being such a busy day.  The theme for this year’s event is ‘Heroes and Villains’ and students are encouraged to dress up to this theme following their house colours.  Last year’s athletics carnival winning house was Cooroora who also took out the overall house champion award for the year.  Students are reminded of the rules that water guns, laptops, esky’s and footballs are banned from Friday’s event to ensure a safe and fun day.  
See you all there…

The annual Interhouse Athletics Carnival will be held this Friday, 21st July at the Cooroy Campus. Students can be guaranteed an action packed, fun day with many events in which to compete throughout the day. The theme for the day is participation and just having a go! It is the only true full school event with the Year 7 and 8 students coming over from the Pomona Campus to compete. Students are encouraged to get into the House spirit by wearing their House colours for the day. Just a reminder of these :
Cooroora – Yellow
Eerwah – Red
Pinbarren – Green
Tinbeerwah – Blue
Students should ensure that they have plenty of sunscreen (the sun safety tent will provide this throughout the day free of charge) and water. There is no set lunch break so students need to plan their eating times around the events. The school tuckshop will be open from 10:00am to 1:00pm if students need to buy food and drinks.
May the best team win!
