For the first time in many years rain and a wet, muddy track were not an issue. Instead, we were greeted with bright blue skies and a warm autumn day for our carnival. Just perfect! Congratulations to all those who took part in their races, who did their best, who enjoyed their Sport in Schools activities and to those who made finals. It was a great effort by all Villa Maria children. A special thank you to the many parents who assisted on the day in the various roles of starting, judging, timekeeping, marshalling, rope holding, ribbon giving, medical and photographer. Thank you to Mr Davis for taking up the equipment, setting up and taking it all back to school.

Congratulations to MacKillop House on their one point victory. 2008 was the last time Green won an Athletics Carnival. MacKillop was superbly led by colour house leaders - Bronte F and Ava K. Photos will be up in the notice board near my office.

Congratulations to the following children who broke the Villa records in the following events -
  • Oscar A - 6yrs 70m 12.80sec (old 12.90 from 2014)
