Pilbara News - - Education - ■ Court­ney Fowler

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.”
