The 2019 House Athletics Carnival was held on the St Margaret’s Place oval on Friday 19 July in perfect sunshine. The day was filled with much House Spirit as each House dressed in their respective themes and a highlight of the day was the shuttle relay event which captured the enthusiasm of the crowd.
The competition was fantastic throughout the day with many standout performers including Shae Jones of Year 12 Campbell who was the individual track champion and fastest girl in the school as well as Rachel Bright of Year 12 Cunningham who accrued the most points in field events. Gipson were victorious overall in a close contest and thoroughly deserving of their win with a very even team performance, adding to the House Athletics Standards trophy that they won last term.
A special thanks to Mrs Paula Jones who continued the wonderful St Margaret’s tradition whereby the mother of the Athletics Captain (Shae) presents the trophies at the House Carnival. Congratulations to all girls on what was a brilliant day of House spirit and competition.
