We hosted our second Junior-Senior School combined House Athletics Carnival this past weekend. More than 1,200 students, competing in 350 races and 112 field events throughout the whole carnival (over 13,000 jumps and throws) created a busy schedule.

Congratulations to Franklin House for their victory in the Senior School, Andrews in the Junior School and Starkey for the combined trophy.

Great weather, excellent parental support and typical Somerset Spartan spirit made it a great three days of competition. The Saturday commenced with all students (eight years to 18 years) running 100m before breaking out to field events. Our typically high participation rates kept the level of performance at an impressive level, with many records broken.

Many thanks to all those parents who attended, staff who officiated and most of our students, who always manage to turn these days into memorable ones.

Selected students now continue to prepare for the APS Carnival on 9 August, where the Senior School Team defends their title, aiming for three-in-a-row.
