​Inter-house athletics carnival was held on 11th and 13th July.

 

The house captains fired up their house teams with team chants to create some spirit amongst the school community. Students then had the opportunity to compete in the 800, 200, 100 and 400 to gain valuable house points. An intense battle of tug-of-war was showcased before the prestigious MSHS 100m gift. This race highlights the fastest 100m runners across all age groups within the school. Each competitor is given a ‘handy cap’ bases on their time from their 100m age group race. Both the boys and girls finished very close with Zeb Irvine being the fastest boy and Amber-Lee Davidson being the fastest girl in the school.

 

Thursday saw competitors throw & jump to new heights. Each age group had a 45 minute set time block to compete all six field events. These included; High Jump, Long Jump, Triple Jump, Discus, Javelin and Shot put. A lot of participation points were accumulated on Thursday and new records were made.
