Secondary Athletics Carnival Report

This year’s Secondary Athletics Carnival was an extremely close competition between houses. A good showing of Sinai, Ararat and Zion athletes turned up for all events ensuring maximum participation points.

This event was once again held at Skippy Park. The beautiful weather and excellent track and field facilities provided an excellent day out for all spectators. The competition was hard fought, and the lead between houses changed regularly. Student participation was extremely high as all present took part in the majority of events.

This year we had a total of 39 GCC Athletic records broken. This is a huge amount of records when you consider that last year 26 were broken.
