Athletics Carnival – RETRO RUNNING

Posted on 19 Aug 2019

What a day!  There was spandex, fluro and leg warmers galore at our annual athletics carnival.  The weather was beautiful and our students got into their retro groove.  Students had a great day entering track and field events, participating in fun novelty events and hanging out in the crowd with their friends.

Some highlights for the day include, Jay H breaking the long standing school record in the boys high jump, Mufrad’s achievements in each of the field events and our first ever fashion parade where Owusu house showed their true colours.  The final events of the day are often the most exciting.  The Lanyon Gift, a 100m handicapped race between the fastest students in each age group, was run for the first time with boys and girls running against each other.  As always, this race was really close and we almost needed the photo finish to determine the winner.  This year, Ryan A in year 7 just managed to hold on to his head start to take the win.  For the first time in a long time, each of our houses fielded at least one team in each of the relays, which was fantastic to see.  All of the teams ran really well but the teachers managed to take away the bragging rights….until next year.


The final scores for the day were:

  • Bond = 77
  • Owusu = 81
  • Blackburn = 82
  • Patterson = 83

A big thank you to our HPE team of teachers for organising a fantastic day and also to ACT Athletics for their assistance and guidance throughout the day.  We are so proud of our school community for their outstanding participation on the day and loved the costumes.  We are looking forward to next year’s carnival and making it bigger and better again.
