Perseverance and school spirit were on full display at the 2022 Cross-Country Carnival. Students wore their house colours with pride as they navigated the deceivingly challenging course.
Memorable moments from some of the staff, students and parents include:
- “As always, it’s inspiring to watch our students strive for their personal best and beyond.”
- “The K-2 races provide such an enriching opportunity for leadership for our Year 12 students and experience for our youngest learners.”
- “The sportsmanship and camaraderie displayed at all of the SMGS carnivals is one of the reasons we chose this school.”
- “I loved that even the students’ pets were dressed to impress in their house colours.”
- “My favourite part of the race is coming into the finish area with everyone cheering so loudly.”
When the dust settled, Cascades came out on top, winning by 14 points over Kiandra, followed by Mowamba and Twynam.
Spedding Pearce and Alexi Cross won the fastest boy and girl cross-country carnival cups.
