We saw great participation from all students and fantastic sportsmanship by all of the contestants. The day brought out the best in Arthur Phillip High School High athletes, with a number of great performances and with a new records being set by a number of students.
Teachers also got into the act in the ‘Teachers vs Students’ race. Although the race was taken out by the students, Mr Bollard surely impressed the crowd finishing in 3rd place in what was a well fought race.
The house competition was, as always, in full swing this year with many contestants competing in the field and track events, trying to rack up as many points as possible for their house. This year saw one of the closest house competitions in a number of years, with only 3 points separating first and second place.
All of the houses and their competitors are to be congratulated on their great effort, enthusiasm and behaviour on the day.
We wish all those students who will be competing at the Zone Athletics Carnival at Blacktown Olympic Park on Friday 23rd June the best of luck in their respective events.
Till next time...
