EIDSVOLD State School held its an­nual ath­let­ics day on Tues­day, July 18.

School sport teacher Ali Highet said the day went well.

“We had a lot of par­tic­i­pa­tion and par­ent and com­mu­nity sup­port,” Ms Highet said.

“We were just re­ally happy that par­ents came out and were cheer­ing on the kids all day.”

Stu­dents from prep to Year 12 com­peted in the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m and high jump events on the day.

“Our kids were strong ath­let­i­cally,” Ms Highet said.

“We had an age cham­pion for every age group which was awe­some.”

Ms Highet said she had worked on or­gan­is­ing the event for a few months.

“I’ve been work­ing on this since the last cou­ple of weeks of term two,” she said.

“That’s when I started or­gan­is­ing it.

“I’m so glad we did it, it all worked out.

“Ev­ery­thing worked out in the end so it’s all good.”

Ju­nior win­ners from the Eidsvold car­ni­val will go on to com­pete in the District Ath­let­ics Car­ni­val at Mun­dub­bera State School on July 22.

Boynewood State School, Bin­jour State School and Mono­go­rilby State School will also com­pete, along with Mun­dub­bera State School.
