Middle School Athletics Day
The sun shone brightly and the fields were in pristine condition for the middle school house athletics day. Huge thanks to the grounds staff for their work in setting up and having the grounds in such superb condition. With all the middle school involved, there was action aplenty throughout the day. There were 8 rotations and combined with the track events there was not a moments rest for all involved. Congratulations to the middle school students and staff who made the day a great success. Participation and competition were the order of the day and it was great to see the house colours out and everyone doing their best to gain points for their house.
Apollo took out the house championship from Jupiter, Saturn and Mariner. The house relays at the end of the day produced some exciting finishes as all the year groups tried their very best. There was intense competition across all the year groups.
School records tumbled on the day: In the year 8 boys, Daichi Iizuka broke the existing record in the 400m, 800m and 1500m. In the year 7 boys, Hugo Mortimer broke the 400m and 1500m records.
