Excitement is building this week with the commencement of lunchtime Athletics trials. Over the next four weeks, trials will be held at lunchtime and after school building towards our 2020 Athletics Carnival. Last year, the School was fortunate to have record numbers of students attending the trials with Howard House winning by only a small margin. This year the rivalry will be just as intense. All boys are encouraged to get out on the track and gain as many points as they can to show spirit for their House. If you are keen to improve, our friendly St Peter’s Athletics Club warmly welcomes you to their Saturday morning coaching sessions on 19 September

Parents are encouraged to come along to enjoy the Athletics Carnival atmosphere, but given these COVID-19 times, final numbers allowed will be confirmed closer to the day. Our best athletes will be invited to join the St Peter’s College Achilles Cup team and compete for the Achilles Cup on Thursday 24 September. This inter-school competition ranks as one of Saints most successful calendar events. Our dominance is a reflection of our boys’ willingness to participate and our desire for well-earned fun.
