On Tuesday, 15 February, all Arnott and Daly athletes participated in a memorable Interhouse Athletics Meeting. Competition was fierce but fun and participation was even more important.This year’s senior Inter-House athletics day was a celebration of talent, true Union spirit, hard work and a good handful of joy! The student body responded well to Mr Pringle’s plea for participation and a fun-filled day was had by all.
Athletics day is a day where our learners are given the opportunity to partake in various disciplines, and they jumped, threw and ran with gusto!
Team spirit, grit and kindness – that was what the Senior Interhouse Athletics was about.
Everyone who participated in an event contributed to the fantastic spirit and earned house points. This year Daly came back and claimed the Interhouse Athletics Shield with 921 points vs Arnott’s 819 points.
The following athletes will receive their awards at the Summer Sports Awards Assembly or Prize Giving. Congratulations on your excellent performance!
