Cross Country and Athletics Carnivals

For our school carnivals, we invite our parents, carers and school community to attend and cheer along with their children. An overview of a typical school carnival may include:
  • Opening Ceremony: We open with a welcome to the students, teachers and school community that have gathered together. There may be an opening speech, the national anthem, Welcome to Country, and other presentations to start the event.
  • Track and Field Events: These are central to our Athletics Carnival. Students participate in various races of different distances, such as sprints, relays, and long-distance races. There may also be hurdles, high jump, long jump, shot put and javelin throw events.
  • Fun Activities: To add an element of fun and entertainment, sports carnivals often include activities like tug-of-war, sack races, three-legged races, and other relay races. These games are designed to be inclusive and allow everyone to participate.
  • Closing Ceremony: The sports carnival concludes with a closing ceremony where winners are awarded medals, trophies, or certificates. There may be speeches, acknowledgements, and a vote of thanks to the participants, teachers and organisers.
School carnivals are not only about competition, but also about fostering a sense of sportsmanship, teamwork, and physical fitness among students. They provide an opportunity for students to showcase their talents, develop their athletic abilities, and build camaraderie with their peers.
