Senior Athletics Carnival

The Bundaberg Athletics Club played host to our annual St John’s Athletics Carnival on Thursday and Friday the 13th and 14th July. Throughout the day the participation from all students in their respective age groups was outstanding and it was wonderful to see amazing sportsmanship in all events. At the conclusion of the events Biar claimed overall victory by 674 points to Reuther’s 633 points.

It was a joy to see parents and friends out in support of our students. Your attendance is so important in promoting the enjoyable atmosphere that we aim to provide for our children.

A very special thankyou to the amazing St John’s staff who worked tirelessly over both days to ensure the events ran smoothly. To those who were able to volunteer their time to assist in any way, I would like to recognise your contribution. I greatly appreciate your time and effort.
