St John’s Wood playing fields was buzzing last week as 350 boys from our Preparatory School went head to head in the annual Years 3 to 6 House Athletics Carnival.

Giles House claimed victory on the day with 4555 points, followed by Dale (4463), Forrest (3673) and Stirling (3282). Dale House was awarded the Spirit Shield for sportsmanship and House camaraderie.

“While it was rather windy, this didn’t hold the boys back from doing their very best on the field. The competition just gets better and better each year,” says Preparatory School Sportsmaster, Brady Leckie.

“The tug-o-war was great fun for all and its always pleasing to see the boys spurring each other on.”


Congratulations to the following champion boys who will represent Christ Church at the JPSSA Athletics Carnival in September:

  • Year 3 – William Simpson
  • Year 4 – Abe Briffa
  • Year 5 – Alfie Mill
  • Year 6 – Jakob Akhlil
