On Thursday 25th May, Marsden High school held its annual school athletics carnival at Dunbar Park in Marsfield. Lucky for everyone involved the weather turned out perfectly on the day and we were able to run all events.
The day was filled with high levels of participation with great sportsmanship and competitiveness on show. Students showed a great level of skill in all events especially the hotly contested 100m sprint races. It was also the long awaited revealing of the school mascot ‘Gordon Ramsey' and great school spirit was on show.
We had 45 students progress to the Zone Carnival where 21 of them are now going through to the regional carnival. This is a great result for Marsden High school and a much improved level of participation this year.
Lastly I would like to thank all the staff who helped out on the day and the roles you played to make the Carnival a success, especially my fellow PDHPE faculty members who helped organised this wonderful whole school event.
