On 28th October, the Junior School hosted their House Triathlon Carnival. We were lucky enough to have outstanding weather on the day, blue skies and sunshine. Competing in ideal conditions, all boys from Year Three to Six were involved in either an individual or team event. The carnival allowed the boys to display resilience, perseverance, determination and teamwork. It’s no easy feat competing in such a challenging event!

The boys competed with great spirit, enthusiasm and sportsmanship. Points wise, the carnival was very close all day. Quinlan House was victorious at the end of the day and claimed the trophy ahead of Redmond House.

Thank you to all staff members, ground staff, ICT staff, Kate Spencer and the Middle School volunteers for all of your help and support on the day. Special thanks to Mr James McPherson for his efforts in preparation for the carnival as well as his efforts on the morning of the carnival in crows set up. This event would not have been possible without the support of this amazing team. Thank you to all of the parents of our competitors; the boys were prepared, organised and enthusiastic! This doesn’t happen without the behind-the-scenes work from our Aquinas College families.
