First annual GISS Athletics Carnival 2019

Friday, 24th May 2019 was finally here, the long anticipated day many students had been looking forward to. Students from Years 3 to 10 had the fantastic opportunity to take part in one of the greatest sporting events of the year, our first annual GISS Athletics Carnival held at Sydney Academy of Sport Narrabeen. On this wonderful sunny day, the students competed in six disciplines: namely the 100m and 200m sprint, 800m distance running, discus, shot put, and long jump. Everybody had a fantastic time. They competed against each other and tried their hardest, achieving amazing results while showing fairness, camaraderie and sportsmanship. 

The House Relays and the Students vs Teachers Relay were especially hard-fought events on the day. Ms Froidevaux, Ms Parsons, Ms Prandle and Ms Davey did their best to take home the victory for the teachers, but they were unlucky this time around and a well-won success went to the students.
Thank you, students. It was a pleasure watching you having so much fun and the atmosphere was electric throughout the day, with students cheering on their House teams as well as each other, all with great enthusiasm.

Below are the nominations for the IPSHA Athletics Carnival (Years 3-6 only), which will be held on Monday, 26th August 2019 at Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Field. A huge congratulations goes to all students who qualified and well done to all students on their amazing achievements at the carnival! You have done us proud.
