Interhouse Athletics Carnival:

The Interhouse Athletics Carnival was held on the 5th & 6th of May, in Week 2 of Term 2. We were blessed with amazing weather across both days with fantastic participation in all year groups. Across the two days it was fantastic to see a showcase of skills, competitive times and incredible House Spirit. This is a big credit to the PE Staff, House Leaders and Student Leaders who have played a big role in the lead up to the carnival and on the day. In a tabloid format, students were given the opportunity to participate in a number of track, field and novelty events demonstrating their sporting prowess whilst gaining valuable points for their House.

The days ended with Year Group relays which were extremely competitive and added to the excitement which was a fitting end to two excellent days of sport.

These days are not possible without the support of our College Community coming together. A big thank you to all Staff for their assistance in helping to run this two-day event, to the Prendiville Alumni who assisted in various roles throughout the event, and to the Parents of Prendiville who assisted us on the day in their fantastic Mexican-themed Buggy.

This year’s results will be presented at the Term 2, Week 8 College Assembly with the presentation of the Interhouse Athletics Shield to the Champion House and Champion and Runner-up Boy and Girl for each Year Group.
