Wednesday 20th April saw the College hold its annual P-12 Cross Country.  The day was a big success with a number of runners displaying excellent running technique and speed.  The students were enthusiastic and the high participation rate was great to see.  There were some standout displays; Brenton Charles in Prep was lightning fast; Maddison Cacciola (year 1) and Mia Bradley (year 3) ran with excellent technique; The two Noel boys, Harry and George (year 2) brought sibling rivalry to the course; Jackson Cacciola (year 5), Ciara Erwin (year 7) and Zac Cacciola (year 7) blew away their opposition.   The competition was fierce and a number of races were separated by less than a second.  

The overall winning house for 2016 was Nicholls on 632 points, second was Kyle on 612 points with Walton in third place on 551 points.  Once again the competition was closely contested with minimal points between first and second.
