SPORT CARNIVALS

The Infant Athletics Carnival took place on Thursday, 17 August. It was great to see a huge turnout of parents and family members to cheer on our Preps, Year 1 and Year 2 students. A big thank you to all the staff who officiated events and well done to all the students for their excellent effort under hot and dry conditions.

Overall Standings: 1) Stradbroke (Red) 2) Moreton (Yellow) 3) Fraser (Green)

Our Northpine Christian College Athletics team competed admirably at the recent Pine Rivers District Athletics. A number of our students produced personal best results. The major highlight was our 12 Year boys relay team (Sydney Arthur, Saxton Arthur, Xavier Thomson and Riley Waterton) finishing in first place and being selected to represent the Pine Rivers District team at the upcoming Met-North Regional Championships at UQ.  Other notable mentions to the following students who will also compete at individual events at the Met North regional athletics carnival: Riley McKenzie – Long Jump, Xavier Thomson – Discus Throw.
