On March 10th, the High School held their annual Sports Day on Vickers Vimy Reserve. The warm, dry conditions, were ideal for the morning events or for those lucky enough to be in a shorter  sprint or field event.

Our students looked brilliant in their House coloured tops, with many adding face- paint, coloured socks and other accessories to show their allegiances. The House Sports Leaders, mindful of the one-point winning margin from last year, organised and inspired their students to ensure every opportunity to gain valuable points was taken. Almost every event was filled to capacity and the lead changed often throughout the day with the score updates. Students participated enthusiastically in several novelty events including the Tug-o-war and the water balloon relay, with no-one too concerned if one broke and showered a few team mates.

As the individual events were completed, the scores were very close and it came down to the 4×100 relays. There was a short delay while we waited for the results to be counted and checked, the tension mounts…and the winner is…A TIE! That’s right after hundreds of throws, runs and jumps, Jackson and Laver were declared joint winners on 1306 points each! Bradman was 3rd and Gould 4th.

It was great to see our students engage so enthusiastically in all activities on the day, in the manner that Paul exhorts us to in Colossians Chapter 3; “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”
