“It’s cold I don’t want to get up!” – but the cows are fed and its Athletics Carnival Day!” Let’s go!” There’s a tent to decorate and transform into a shark tank!” The Tigers already have their den created and the crocs were ready to keep the Sharks and tigers apart. Who would be the most ferocious? Give it your best war cry!
The neighbourhood was very aware that GCC Primary students were about to do battle at Skippy Park. Ararat’s synchronisation was awesome, Zion had the passion and Sinai revved up the volume. Every tent looked spectacular – who could decide a winner in this competition! Zion was declared war cry winners by unbiased judges but more points came to Ararat and Sinai with tent decorations and cheering throughout the day. In the end it was declared a three way tie; 50 points each!
Competition was once agin fierce especially in the 100m A division. The races were very close with often less than two seconds between all runners. Age Champions competitions were also close in many age groups. Points were totalled from each event to find the eventual winners. They are listed below.
It was fantastic to see everyone doing their very best in every event. Some threw far and some not so far, some jumped high and long and some not so high and long, some ran very fast and some their fastest but everyone competed to the very best of her ability.
The encouragement for team mates was fantastic as teams cheered on their team mates and class mates and friends, no matter which house they were in.
The P and F ran a great canteen selling burgers, drinks and all sorts of goodies. Parents and grandparents were fantastic support for all competitors. We would also like to thank parents for transporting children to Skippy Park rather than GCC. This enabled us to start the carnival on time and have time to run relays at the end of the day.
After all Primary events Sinai were presented the shield as champions just five points ahead of Ararat in second and Zion in third. The overall winners will be decided after the Secondary and P – 8 years carnival are completed.
