Team spirit on full display at carnival
Splashes of red, green, yellow and blue filled Bulgarra Oval at St Luke’s College inter-house athletics carnival earlier this month.
This year marked the first time Year 7s participated in the carnival, where they set 20 inaugural records.
There were 23 new records set across the day.
The competition was closely contested, with Harding House coming in first place, Maitland in second place, followed by Fortescue and Nickol house.
Physical Education teacher Kogi Govender said the students of the college showed great team spirit as they fiercely competed in all the events throughout the day.
“A fun day was had by all, whether they competed in the tug-o-war, hurdles, running, throwing or jumping,” she said.
“Each house had a mascot to lead the cheers and symbolise the strengths of each faction — Harding had the lion, Fortescue had the shark, Nickol had the bull and Maitland had the crocodile.”
