On Friday 5 May all of the Emmanuel students headed down to our College ovals to participate in the annual Athletics Carnival. It turned out to be a delightful day, full of sunshine and a high of 24 degrees.

We changed the format in 2017, and the day started off with the field events, as students moved around both ovals, competing in Long Jump, Shot Put, Javelin, 800m and the Tazzie Devil Novelty events.

After the morning events, students were able to show their talents in the track events, including 100m, 200m and 400m sprints. High Jump also continued on wing of the football oval. The House tents were a sea of colour as the six houses sat along side the 100m straight cheering on their fellow house members.

The tables below outline how the results ended up. A special mention must go to Francis House who dominated throughout the day and won the House Shield, completing their 3-PEAT for all of the Emmanuel House Carnivals.

A special thanks to all Teaching and Non-Teaching staff who helped out on the day; it s a long day and your hard work is much appreciated. I don’t want to name names, as I would end up listing every single staff member at Emmanuel.

The Athletics carnival is a whole school effort and a fantastic day for the school community to get together, thank you to all the parents that came down and supported the event. I hope your day was relaxing and enjoyable.

Finally, a special mention has to go to all of the students, your enthusiasm, House Spirit and exceptional behaviour was fantastic. There is a very positive outlook towards the ACC Athletics Carnival in Term Three.

Mr Ryan Henley - Director of Sport
