Inter-school Athletics Carnival – Tom Price

Another year, another win for our amazing Interschool Athletics team! On Thursday 9th September our 48 students and 4 staff made the trip out to Tom Price to compete in the Pilbara Athletics Carnival. Thursday night’s twilight carnival involved High Jump & Long Jump events, and against 5 other schools finished the day in 3rd position. After a decent night’s sleep for most, the main event started at 8am Friday morning.

Fantastic individual results were too many to make mention, but our “Spirit Awards” were awarded to 2 outstanding students for their efforts and help throughout the trip. Congratulations Ella Dale (Year 8) and Sam Fleury (Year 12). 

Consistency was the key to St Luke’s success this year; our students running, throwing and jumping beyond any of our expectations. Individual medals weren’t awarded at the end of the day, rather, champion schools awarded for each division. All of our year groups finished in the top 3:

Year 7 Girls: 2nd  

Year 7 Boys: 2nd

Year 8 Girls: 1st

Year 8 Boys: 3rd

Year 9 Girls: 3rd

Year 9 Boys: 1st

Year 10 Girls: 3rd

Year 10 Boys: 1st  

Open Girls: 1st

Open Boys: 1st

Overall, St Luke’s defended their title as Champion school and made the long trip home Friday night victorious. Well done St Luke’s!
