Following on from the School Athletics Carnival earlier in the year, over 70 students qualified to participate in this event. Many of these students had been training in the before-school training sessions each Wednesday morning and were well prepared for their individual events. 

All of the students who attended showed an exemplary level of dedication and effort and there were many outstanding performances on the day.
