Prep InterHouse Athletics

Dainfern College held its annual Preparatory School InterHouse Field and Track Events on Tuesday 10 and Thursday 12 July. This is always a hotly contested event that is well supported by pupils and parents alike.

The field events were held on Tuesday and attended only by the participating pupils. Pupils competed in shot put, long jump and high jump events, with each age group moving around the main oval to compete. Each event was supervised and scored by staff, with points totalled at the conclusion of the afternoon.

The track events on Thursday were a much more high-energy affair, with all pupils from Grade 4 to 7 in attendance, along with selected Grade 3s, who filled the stands and cheered the competitors or played a vital assistant role to the scorers and place judges.

The participating pupils competed in 70m hurdles and 80m, 100m, 150m, 200m and 1200m track events, ending off the day with the 4x100m relay race which was well supported and where results were particularly tight.

Mr Brendan Quinn, Principal of Dainfern College Senior Preparatory, announced the results and handed out trophies with Ms Tessa Shellard, Deputy Principal of Sport & Extramurals.

The Junior Victor and Victrix Ludorum trophies were awarded to Liam Duvenage and Amber Lily Fairon. There was a tie for Senior Victor Ludorum between Nkosinathi Ntuli and Faraz Hamayun, and Senior Victrix Ludorum was awarded to Siphelele Makhathini.

The house points from the two events were totalled and Kraken House was announced the winner for 2018, with Phoenix following close behind and Griffin taking third place.
