What a day! In magnificent conditions at Scotch Oakburn Park, our Year 6 to 12 students competed in the Cross Country House Carnival. Students should feel very proud of their achievements in competing on the very tough and difficult course around the Park, wetlands area and the Penquite campus.

Students showed a lot of determination and spirit in finishing their event with the satisfaction of making the journey. It is not all about winning but giving their best and reaching the finish line, exhausted but with a sense of pride.

The contest for House points was again extremely close and the points will be announced in assembly this Monday.
