On Monday and Tuesday this week many of our students participated in the District Athletics Carnival. This was the first carnival for the newly formed Southern Scorpions, of which St John’s is a member. Our athletes did the College proud and certainly made an impact on the new District with some very strong performances and good all-round results.

We congratulate the St John’s students who were announced as Age Champions:

Keer Jok 10 Year boys and Sarbani Maitra 10 Year girls

Lachlan Cooper 13 Year boys and Makayla Magro 14 Year girls

The day saw Primary and Secondary students competing at the same venue and it was pleasing to see the St John’s students supporting one another and cheering them on. We congratulate all our students who participated.

The Primary students who received First, Second or Third Place ribbons at the Districts are listed below:
