Athletics Carnival

Last Thursday, 22 April, we successfully held our annual CRC Athletics Carnival.

After being washed out in 2019 and cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19, we were beyond excited to finally get back onto the track this year.

Our Year 12 students opened the carnival in style with their creative dress-ups in house colours. They paraded down the 100m straight to showcase their costumes.

Students participated in a range of track, field and novelty events on the day. The competition was fierce among all age groups.

The results for our 2021 Athletics Carnival will be announced to students later this week during morning homeroom. Well done to all who participated.

Our house leaders also selected two students from each house as our Athletics MVP’s. These students demonstrated high levels of participation, sportsmanship and team spirit. Our 2021 MVP’s will be announced at our next school assembly.

A special mention to Miss Lauren Whitford, one of our Year 8 Coordinators and Year 9 student Anna Aguirre who cut their hair on the day to raise funds for the Do It For Cancer campaign run by our Social Justice Coordinator, Miss Emma Van Wees.

The school’s fundraising total reached a whopping $4000, putting us in the state’s top five Cancer Council fundraising teams. A big thank you to everyone who donated. Future fundraising this term will also go to the Cancer Council.

I’d also like to thank our student leaders and Student Leadership Coordinator Miss Nirasha Pandi for their excellent work in organising and running our BBQ on the day.
