Years 2-12 Inter-House Cross Country Carnival 2021

Last Thursday, we had our annual Inter-House Cross Country and the spirit shown from the three Senior School Houses was amazing! Our girls ran amazing times throughout the day and pushed themselves to complete the course. It was amazing to see so many girls cheering around the course and even helping some of the younger girls run the last few 100 metres of the course! We also had our Student vs Teacher Tug of War and Boarder vs Day Girl Tug of War! Fpr the first time our Student team defeated the Teachers, winning a thrilling 2 out of 3 rounds and our amazing Boarders took out the win against the Day Girls winning all 3 rounds!
