Some 6000 trial entries later, we arrived at the Carnival of House Athletics with a week of scheduled lunchtime events and Friday 23rd September House Athletics Day. The four week build up, challenged by frequent inclement weather and heavy track conditions, offered students multiple opportunities to trial and to receive coaching from our expert discipline specialists.

Like with House Swimming, the program allowed for boys of all abilities to actively participate. The diverse schedule allowed the elite to demonstrate their abilities, but at the same time welcomed mass participation.

Congratulations to the following Award Winners, Runners Up, new Record holder and Houses on their achievements.
