RGGS P - 12 Athletics Carnival

The CQU oval was filled with the House colours of Girls Grammar students as they attended the annual athletics day. From throwing to jumping to running the carnival gave students the opportunity to display their athletic talents. Students who have done well and finished highly in events will be selected to represent the Girls Grammar Athletic Team which will compete at the Rockhampton and Districts Athletics Carnival to be held early next term. A massive thank you to all the staff who worked very hard officiating at events and to the parents who supported their daughter cheering them on.


Two highlights from the carnival:

  1. The Day students winning the annual Tug of War.

  2. The 'Gift' fastest 100m handicapped race won by Kaylyn

Results of the carnival will be announced at the first assembly in Week 1 of Term 2.
