Last Friday the College kicked off the sporting season with the annual Inter-House Cross Country Carnival. There was talent coming from all houses but only one took home the most points for the crucial Arnison Cup.

This year it was Veivers House who were the quickest on their feet to take the win. The blue house walked away with their first victory for 2020, in a spectacular contest of endurance and speed. The 13 Year Old Boys managed to achieve a podium trifecta, while we saw many other Veivers members up on stage to receive medallions.

It wasn’t just the athletes who performed their very best to collect a place in the top eight and put Veivers in first place, but it was truly an effort made by all students who willingly participated in their races. Your perseverance and positive attitude shined throughout Friday’s carnival which we hope to see again at the Inter-House Athletics Carnival in Term Three.

A special mention goes to those who helped organise the event; our Head of Sport, Mrs McKenna, Dean of Activities, Mr Sayer, Bird and Bush staff and all those who helped out at the carnival. Furthermore, Veivers' victory would have never been possible without the support of our tutors and captain’s Sam and Makayla. Of course, a huge thank you goes to our acting Head of House, Mr Attoe, who has made a great impact to the culture within the Veivers community as reflected in the efforts made by those who wore blue on Friday’s carnival.

Finally, congratulations to the students who have made it to APS, we wish you the very best for your upcoming race as you go on to represent Somerset College.
