Action Aplenty at Primary Athletics Carnival
The tents were up, the track was marked and the starter was ready for 200 excited students. A sea of red, green and blue waved in the breeze, as students arrived at the Beerwah Sports Grounds ready to compete. The war cries rang out around Beerwah as each team challenged the others with great enthusiasm and noise. Students ran, jumped and threw energetically throughout the day showing their skills to parents and fellow competitors. The highest placed two or three students gained selection into the GCCC District team but everyone gained very valuable points for their house.
Six records were broken and the competition to become age champion and champion house was evident throughout the day. The house scores were close all day but Zion won the Primary day gaining a 150 point lead by the end of the day’s competition. It was great to see almost all our students participating in the carnival helping their team gain valuable points.
Cassidy Ferris dominated her nine year age group winning every event gaining a whopping 70 points! There were some very close competitions for age champion especially in the nine year old boys with Daemon Cruise just edging out Ben Blue and Ethan Palmer by two points. Eleven year old Adam Smerdon and Patrick McKenzie also had a great battle, finishing first equal! This just shows the depth of talent at our College amongst the Primary school. Amity Roser and Jaylah Daunt also gained almost a twenty point advantage on their closest rivals to win their age groups.
The P and F provided a delicious sausage sizzle and snacks which were very much appreciated by students and parents. A big “Thank you” also goes to all the parents who helped at events and supported their children throughout the day.
