Full marks to sport­ing at­ti­tudes

Whitsunday Times - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

THE fi­nal sport­ing car­ni­val of the year for Whit­sun­day Chris­tian Col­lege was held last Fri­day on July 20, fea­tur­ing the Prep to Year 12 Ath­let­ics Car­ni­val.

The day kicked off with House cheers to get ev­ery­one into the com­pet­i­tive spirit.

It was ex­cel­lent to see stu­dents across all year lev­els and ages come for a day packed with ex­cit­ing track and field events and also a healthy dose of house spirit thrown into the mix.

Wher­ever one went, stu­dents were giv­ing their best ef­fort to per­form to their high­est po­ten­tial.

The Prep­pies were sprint­ing over hur­dles, Year 6 and 7 stu­dents push­ing for new heights in the high jump and Se­nior stu­dents were leap­ing across the sun-baked sand­pit at the long jump com­pe­ti­tion.

There was a suc­cess­ful sausage siz­zle or­gan­ised by P&F, with Year 12 stu­dents sell­ing drinks to raise money for their up­com­ing grad­u­a­tion din­ner.

The school has thanked the sec­ondary stu­dents who helped and sup­ported pri­mary stu­dents through­out the day.

The tuck­shop was also open, of­fer­ing stu­dents a range of yummy snacks for ev­ery­one to en­joy.

It was won­der­ful to see so many par­ents and fam­i­lies at the school en­joy­ing the lively at­mos­phere and amaz­ing weather.

Con­grat­u­la­tions go out to all stu­dents in­volved and the school is look­ing for­ward to next year’s three ma­jor sport­ing car­ni­vals to re­turn.

Who will win, will it be Lions or Ea­gles? This will be an­nounced at a spe­cial as­sem­bly in com­ing weeks.
