StJPII Athletics Carnival 2016!

Athletics 16 1

Students of StJPII turned into sports stars and athletes on Tuesday, 3 May, as they hit the tracks and sporting fields at Blacktown International Sports Park for their annual Athletics Sports Carnival! 

Each year, all students from Years 7 - 12 gather for a day full of sports, fun and team spirit. Students have the opportunity to compete in sprinting, relays, long jump, triple jump, shot put and more! For those who aren’t competing for a place in the championships, students participate in aim of earning the most house points for participation for their house. The crowd stands are coloured in blue, red, green and white as students dress to support their house and cheer on their peers. Brady came first place on the points board at 1051, followed by Locke at 861, Therry at 826 and Cross at 644!

To top it off, the Year 12 students dressed up in crazy costumes for the traditional Year 12 Novelty Race for charity! Year 12 went to great extents to present the craziest costumes, and spent some time raising money during the carnival before they gathered at the start line for the most colourful, and most entertaining race of the whole day.

It was a fantastic day of great fun, sportsmanship, school pride and team spirit!
