In a busy two weeks, the College hosted its second major sporting carnival with House Athletics yesterday.
A steady stream of 20 buses took students and staff to the Doncaster Athletics Track where they participated in a large array of track and field events.
Birt pulled ahead and was again victorious showing themselves as a sporting powerhouse this year, however, with numerous events to come, the 2021 House Cup is still very much up for grabs.
11 Records were broken, congratulations to:

A sea of blue, red, green, yellow, orange and purple could be seen across the track with our Year 12 students again taking the opportunity to celebrate what was their final House Athletics Carnival.
Congratulations to all our students, to those in events and the all-important cheer squad. Thank you also to our staff whose commitment and efforts on the day made it run seamlessly.
