    On Thursday we held the first half of our Athletics Carnival on the new Athletics track. There was so much excitement, energy and not to mention nerves as our young athletes put the new track to the test. It was a successful day had by all and we can’t wait to see the rest of the Carnival on Saturday 23 July where Age and House Champions will be decided.

    Training for the APS team will continue in week 3 Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7.00am right through until the APS Carnival on 9 August and South Coast on 6 and 7 of September. Good luck to all our athletes.

    The Lower Primary (Pre-Prep to Year 2) Athletics Carnival will be held on Thursday 28 July at 1.20pm on the Common. There will be plenty of excitement and House spirit as we see our young athletes race down the straight in the 40m and 80m dash and test their balance and co-ordination in the egg n spoon and sac race. If you get there early enough, you might even get to see Mrs Framp do the Health Hussle!!
