Tuesday 28 July in bright sunshine we hosted our annual Athletics Carnival at the Knox Athletics track. We were blessed with a beautiful day – not bad for the depths of winter!
A record 900 students across both campuses participated in what was an exceptional day of competition. All students competed with great sportsmanship and we now look forward to our Division Athletics Day on Thursday 24 August with153 students representing the college including Ryan Hatch (Year 11) jumping 6m 30 in the long jump, and other very enthusiastic athletes (photo below)
