Swish swash: the noise of the angry river. Clip clop: the animals who were fleeing. Drip drop: the noise of the river’s last drops.

Last week Somerset College hosted the Junior School APS Athletics Carnival. It was so exciting for our students as they were able to represent the College on their ‘home’ turf.
The Carnival was a success and judging by the smiles and sounds of laughter coming from our Junior School students, it was a good time had by all. As a team, the Junior School came 4th in the aggregate point score and 3rd in the percentage trophy. This is a fantastic team effort. We also had some impressive individual results. Oria Mougrabi came 1st in the 10 Year Girls 800m, 2nd in the 100m and 3rd in Long Jump. Kartier Majarnovic came 3rd in the 10 Years Girls 800m, Will Baker 2nd in the 11 Years Boys Discus, Joe Wright-Smith 1st in the 12 Years Boys Shot Put, Kade Reynoldson (11 Year Boys) 2nd in Long Jump and was the 3rd Age Champion. Peter Osborne (12 Years Boys) came 3rd in Discus, Ella Kirk (12 Years Girls) 2nd in Discus, Aidan Mackie (9 Boys) 2nd in Discus and 2nd in Long Jump, Jorja Otto (11 Years Girls) 1st in High Jump, Teneal Nguyen (12 Years Girls) 2nd in Long Jump 1st in High Jump and Liam Kiddle (9 Years Boys) 3rd in Shot Put.
