The annual Faith Athletics Day was held on Friday 11th March. This was the culmination of athletic events that had been held across the week.

The Championship events were held during the morning, with some outstanding performances recorded. It was very pleasing to see the large number of students competing in each event, with many students nominating themselves for 4 or 5 events.

A very big congratulations to all students for the manner in which they competed and the positive atmosphere that was evident across the day.

Thank you to all the Parents and Caregivers that attended on the day. It is great to see you supporting this college community event.
