Physical Education News

The Junior School boys have been working hard in their Physical Education lessons the past few weeks in preparation for the Inter-House Cross Country Carnival which was held on the College grounds, Wednesday 17 May. In beautiful conditions parents and students witnessed the running of the course by the Kindergarten and Pre-Primary boys. This was the second year our Pre-Primary boys have run and the inaugural race for the Kindergarten boys. These boys did a great job of completing the course and setting the tone for the rest of the School. There were some fantastic performances throughout the morning as the students raced against their peers in a friendly and fun environment. Special mention must go to Oliver Knuckey who won the Year 4 race in a new record time of 6.10.14. This race also saw a great act of selflessness from Jonathan Gattorna who stopped to help one of his fellow competitors, who was suffering from an asthma attack, at the expense of his own performance.

A great day culminated in the House Shield being awarded to Bruce House for the fourth year in a row. Huge congratulations to all the boys who completed the course throughout the morning and for their efforts in training and running on the day.
