Fun at Inter-House Athletics and Mini-Olympics

By Roxanne Litherland and Beth Cooper Howell

Sprinting, sack races, potatoes on spoons and a wildly enthusiastic Moms’ and Dads’ race were the usual sporty crowd-pleasers at St Francis College’s annual Inter-House Athletics and Mini-Olympics Day last month.

Pupils ran for their lives and clocked up fantastic wins – no matter who came first.

Young athletes competed in various events, including long-distance racing, sprinting, relays, shot put, long jump, cricket ball and javelin.

A fun start to the festivities was the Grade 0, 00 and Nursery, Mini-Olympics morning. Parents cheered from the sidelines as their tots enjoyed taking part in many fun-filled and colourful races.
