The Preparatory School students took part in their annual athletics carnivals last week, a culmination of an intensive and fun athletics program.

The Pre-Primary to Year 2 boys participated in sprints, hurdles and a relay as well as team games such as egg and spoon, sack race and bean bag throw.

“It was a wonderful morning during which the boys impressed their parents and friends with their enthusiasm and skill,” said Brady Leckie, Prep School Sportsmaster.

Later in the week, the Years 3 to 6 boys enjoyed a great day of athletic competition, resulting in a spectacular win from Stirling House. The final results were Stirling (2258), Dale (2023), Giles (1869) and Forrest (1772).
