Mallacoota P-12 College Athletics Carnival
On Thursday the 30th of July Mallacoota P-12 College held their annual Athletics Carnival. The weather was perfect. Students went all out in their costumes with many donning superhero outfits. This was wholly student driven by the Secondary and Primary house captains. It really brought an air of celebration to the day.
Cann River and Noorinbee joined us at 10.15am and we moved straight into the Prep-2s social 100m events. Supported by the Secondaries these little people ran their hearts out. The P-2 social student participated with the 17+ and 16+ students all day. It was great to see the impact students at both ends of their schooling had on one another.
The primaries and secondaries ran through the field events giving their best. Students competed in long jump, triple jump, high jump, shot put, discus and javelin (sec. only). We had the most amount of students competing (in a friendly and sociable way) that I have seen.
The students who were not competing did a fantastic job participating and assisting with the running of the day. One senior staff member mentioned that it was the best non-competing participation she had ever seen. These students also gained a number of points for their houses. Awesome job!
