Cross Country and Athletics Carnivals: 

On the 27th March, we held our annual Cross Country Carnival at Lilydale Lake. There was a record number of sign up’s, with over 500 students running on the day. It was fantastic to see some extremely competitive races, with some age group champions decided by less than five seconds. There was also a great level of sportsmanship shown by all members of the college. 

Congratulations to the following students who placed first overall in their respective age groups!

U13: Xander Lalor & Matilda Sleeman 
U14: Angus Trewavis & Jordyn Allen
U15: Bailey Van Bert & Brooke Petrie 
U16: Harrison Woolhouse & Ashley Chuah
U17: Cooper Williams & Shaneyl Parker-Hawdon
Open: Samuel Ottosson & Zoe Griffin 

On the 24th May, Mooroolbark College participated in our annual Athletics carnival. Luck was on our side with perfect weather for the day. Just as the sun came out, so did the costumes, with students dressed in playdough, onesies, jeanies, bananas, power ranges and even sauce bottles. It was fantastic to see so many students wearing their house colours and displaying their yellow, blue, green and red pride.  

The sprints were booming with students and our relays were as intense as ever. So many activities were ran across the day and the enthusiasm from students is what makes this day so special. Students even had the opportunity to race against our fastest teachers in the staff vs students relay (with the students coming out victorious).  

Keep an eye out for the final results to be posted soon!
