The Junior School House Cross Country Carnival was held on Thursday, 5th April on McMahon Oval. All students from Kindergarten to Year Six competed, with race distances ranging from 250m to 2.5km. The wind provided an issue on the day and the conditions made it tough for the competitors. However, all races were completed before the down pour. Additionally, it was great to see many of the teachers and Middle School student volunteers running with and supporting the boys throughout the carnival.

1. Redmond 452 points

2. Clune 508 points

3. Egan 537 points

4. Quinlan 560 points
