District Athletics

Last Tuesday 34 Craigburn students participated in the Southern Heights District Sapsasa Athletics Carnival  at Santos Stadium.

The students competed against students from 15 schools within our district. Events throughout the day included 100m, 200m and 800m, shot put, discus, long jump and high jump. All students are to be congratulated on their efforts and positive display of sportsmanship. Our most successful year with 27 top 4 place finishes recorded for Craigburn.  Thank you to Jed, Ivy and Karl who were our marshalling officials recording the photo finishes for the track events. Special thanks to the parents Tarnya, Ashlee and Nadia who assisted on the day.

Several of our students will now go on to represent Southern Heights and compete in the Sapsasa State Athletics Metropolitan Championship in Week 6 of this term.
