Middle School Inter-House Athletics Carnival

The Middle School Athletics Carnival was held on Thursday 29 August. Under blustery conditions, the Middle School Pipe Band performed a number of tunes for the Middle School boys to march into the event. Our pipers always put on a great performance and did not disappoint again this year.

With a few hours of clear skies, students were able to complete a good section of the programme on the track and in field events. There were some fantastic performances on the track with a very helpful tailwind which made for some very fast times.

The weather then impacted the remainder of the carnival, with all field events being cancelled for the afternoon due to the conditions. As unfortunate as this was, this allowed students to spectate some really great races and efforts from all students in the track events.

Due to the cancellation of these field events, the final House points and results were based from track events only.  Congratulations to Bruce House on winning first place!  Please see below the final standings for the day:

Bruce             1095
Robert             1090
Andrew           1051
Gordon           886
James             729
David             711

For those parents, family and friends who came to spectate, thank you for braving the conditions and we hope you enjoyed your day.
