Faster - Higher - Stronger ... and Fitter at OLD

Report by Isabel, Year 5

The Preps, Year 1’s and 2’s were next, followed by the relays. Over the whole day we had High Jump, Long Jump, Shot Put and more sprints. We also played some Game Factory games and the 1’s and 2’s played Tunnel Ball, Captain Ball and Leader Ball. We had a barbecue lunch which was great.

Congratulations to Samaritan who were the Champions this year. Benedict and Nugent provided great opposition. Thank you to Mitchelton High School for letting us use their oval. Thanks also to all of the parents for supporting us at the Carnival. Some students will now go on to the Zone Carnival at Marist College

In the pursuit of our personal best we learn that victory comes not from beating others but from being better than we were before.
