Cross Country/Fun Run


Cross Country/Fun Run


The school cross country/fun run is one of the main sporting and fundraising events for the year for the HPE department. Although the cross country was run and won at the start of this term we have now finally finished receiving the funds raised by our students for their efforts in the fun run event. These funds raised go straight back to the students through the purchase of sporting jerseys and sports equipment for the students to use. A massive thank you must go out to all the students who took the time to help raise funds for the fun run as over $1200 was raised this year.

The overall placings for the cross country can now be finalised with placings and overall money raised contributing to the overall points for each careport. The overall standings were as follows:
   2016 Cross Country/Fun Run Results!!
1. Elliott                 1593
2. Heron                1174
3. Keppel               1084
4. Curtis                987
A huge congratulations goes out to Elliott for their convincing win. Elliott has now won the swimming carnival and the cross country/fun run. I wonder if they can make it a clean sweep in our upcoming athletics carnival.
Athletics Carnival & Pre-Carnival Events
Coming up on Tuesday 21st June we have got our annual athletics day carnival. This is always a fun day full of colour and excitement. Leading up to this day we have got pre-carnival events for all age groups. These pre-carnival events consist of shot put, javelin, discus, long jump and triple jump.
For 12 & 13 years age groups these events are conducted during the whole of week 9 during both lunch breaks. For 14 – open years divisions the events are held at the end of week 9 and for the whole of week 10 during lunch breaks.
I look forward to seeing plenty of students participating in these events and having a great day at our athletics carnival.
Queensland Representatives
The first half of this year has been hectic with Port Curtis, Capricornia and State Championships taking place. A large number of our students have done exceptionally well to make Port Curtis and Capricornia teams in various sports however three students have had the outstanding achievement of making the Queensland team for their respective sport.
The students are:
Joshua Andrew (Cricket)
Lyncoln Rebel (Rugby League)
Nathan Spencer (Volleyball)
A huge congratulations must go out to these students and I look forward to hearing about how they performed at the National Titles. A full list of students who have represented PC and Capricornia will be included in the next newsletter article.
