2018 Holy Rosary Athletics Carnival

The Holy Rosary Athletics Carnival was held on Friday September 14 with students from Pre Primary to Year 6 in attendance.

All of the students tried their very best on the day with some fantastic individual and team performances from every faction and year group. There was a great atmosphere with lots of smiles, ribbons and laughter.

I would like to thank all of the parents and staff that worked hard on the day to help make the day a success.

I will post the Holy Rosary Interschool Athletics Squad on the Class Blogs over the holidays and organise a training schedule when school resumes in week 1 Term 4.
