■ Al­most 50 stu­dents from St Luke’s Col­lege flew to Perth to par­tic­i­pate in the As­so­ci­ated and Chris­tian Col­leges of WA Ath­let­ics Car­ni­val ear­lier this month.

Stu­dents par­tic­i­pated against seven schools from around WA in the run­ning, jump­ing, throw­ing and hur­dle events.

St Luke’s Jock Wal­ton was awarded the un­der-15 boys cham­pion and the open boys cham­pion was claimed by his team­mate, James Forster-Reed.

Tay­lor Sparks was named the un­der-15 girls cham­pion, with the St Luke’s girls team win­ning the shield for the best over­all girls’ score.

St Luke’s Col­lege se­cured third place in the car­ni­val over­all, close be­hind Austin Cove and Ser­pen­tine Col­lege.

Head of health and phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion Kogi Goven­der said St Luke’s Col­lege stu­dents par­tic­i­pated with en­thu­si­asm and com­pet­i­tive­ness in all the events.

“St Luke’s Col­lege stu­dents look for­ward to par­tic­i­pa­tion in their fiercely com­pet­i­tive arena and be­ing ex­posed to a va­ri­ety of chal­leng­ing com­peti­tors,” she said.

“Our ath­letes gave their best in all events, show­ing great courage of con­vic­tion, en­durance and stamina. The hur­dles events were very ex­cit­ing to watch and stu­dents dis­played ex­cel­lent style and tech­nique in ne­go­ti­at­ing the hur­dles race ... and in the re­lays our stu­dents dis­played great team spirit, sports­man­ship and pride.”
