On Thursday 16 September, 78 students represented the College at the ACC Athletics B Division Carnival in Perth. Departing on Wednesday morning, we arrived at the Swan Valley Adventure Centre for a quick luggage drop off and then headed out for a fun afternoon of ten pin bowling and arcade games before dinner at Hillary's Boat Harbour.
Thursday morning, we were up early and ready to compete.
We started the day well, leading from the start with St Stephen's School and Prendiville College hot on our heels for most of the day. Competing against some of Perth’s best schools, our students were up to the challenge. It was that wonderful country town spirit and determination of our athletes that was proving the difference.
It came down to the relays were unfortunately St Stephen's School won just enough relays to steal the lead from us.
We finished the day in second place, only 40 points behind first place. An amazing performance and effort!!
Congratulations to our Years 7, 8 and 9 boys winning the Junior Boys Division and the Years 7, 8, 9 girls for winning the Junior Girls Division.

Thank you to our Health and Physical Education Department for facilitating the afterschool training sessions, Mrs Ronnie Toomath, Mr Brad Annison, Miss Emma Scally and Miss Kayley King for accompanying the students on the trip, and Mr Scott Jackson and Mr Paul Bombara for driving the buses.
Finally, a huge thank you to all the students who participated in the Carnival, your determination and drive is why the College has such a great reputation at ACC carnivals. The school community could not be prouder of their behaviour, professionalism, and effort.
Mr Joe Italiano
Our 2021 Interhouse Athletics Carnival was held on Friday 27 August at St Pat's Oval. Well done to all athletes for giving it a go in the individual and team events not only on the day but also in the Pre-Carnival events held over two weeks leading up to the main event. From early on in the day Kelly House were top of the scoreboard and despite the efforts from the other Houses, they maintained their lead. Congratulations to Kelly House, our 2021 Interhouse Athletics Carnival Champions and well done to Miss Melissa Buscumb for leading Kelly House to its first Athletics Carnival victory in nine years! Thank you to all the families who came along to the Carnival to support the students.
