Faction Athletics 2022

Windy conditions greeted the start of the 2021 Faction Athletics Carnival.

Having gone through the hottest summer on record and continuously changing covid requirements, we were very rushed to complete timing of sprint races and distance events.

We also were restricted by time as the last two weeks of term were designated for our In-Term swimming lessons.

Tuesday was our jumps day where everyone from year 1 to year 6 competed. The next day started with our long distance running events then the throwing events for everyone.

Thursday saw all our sprint races being completed first followed by flag relays for everyone which provided plenty of cheering and close competition as well as double points for team games.

Pass ball and leader ball events continued the frenzied activities.

Baton relay races were hotly contested and some very close finishes ensued.

The points at the end of the Carnival were relatively close, with Passmore in third place, Prichard in second place and Chipper finishing on top.

We also had some great individual performances. Our Champion Boys and Girls are as follows:

A thank you to all our parent helpers and staff for helping make the carnival run smoothly and to our Faction Captains and Vice-Captains for their fine work throughout the carnival.

A great day was had by the children.

Thanks
