Students from Year 7 to Year 12 were bussed to Bunbury, to experience the professional facilities that the Bunbury Regional Athletics Arena offers. With all the traditional athletic events on offer, the students ran, jumped, threw and tossed their way through the day. The weather was positively Summery, and students, staff and parents enjoyed near perfect conditions. On the following day, the Primary students (Year 3-6) experienced a less than glorious day, with wind, rain and hail making the outing a little more challenging.
Some colourful costumes were found amongst the students as well, with particular colour displayed by the Year 11 boys. Full body suits were worn by several, which made them stand-outs in the events, but not necessarily in performance.
As for the results, Naphtali faction was the clear overall winner in the Secondary school, with Judah not far behind. Reuben & Benjamin finished in third and fourth places respectively. The Primary Carnival still needs to complete several events to determine winners, after poor weather called the event off early.
Students who have performed exceptionally well will be selected to participate in the upcoming interschool events in coming days. The results from the interschool event will lead to Champion Boys and Girls in each year group being identified and rewarded.
