In the coming weeks, athletic trials will commence for the 2019 Athletics Carnival. This year there has been a 25% increase to trial points, in addition to the trial standards being lowered. Students will need to put in a big effort to ensure they gain as many points for their House as possible.
Trials will commence over a three-week at lunchtime and after school. Saints Athletics Club will host Saturday morning coaching sessions for students interested in refining their skills leading up to the carnival.
Parents, families and friends are encouraged to attend the carnival to support the students and to enjoy the atmosphere. Students who perform well will be selected to compete in the St Peter’s College Achilles Cup team on the last Thursday of Term 3, a highlight in the Saints calendar. A strong performance at the Athletics Carnival will ensure a Saints can field a competitive team in the Achilles Cup.
With a strong mix of championship and House events, the Athletics Carnival season is always a great deal of fun and enjoyment.
