Stark wins College Cross Country

For the second year running, Stark emerged champion of our annual College Cross Country, collecting most points for participation and fastest times.

It was a perfect autumn day with amazing enthusiasm and House spirit as our students and staff, including Principal (Acting) Duncan McQueen, raced for the finish line. Our Year 7 and 8 students started the races for the day followed our Senior students. It was great to be able to welcome families back onsite and have them support our students as they ran the 3km course.

Our College field was a hive of activity throughout the day and filled with a sense of camaraderie as serious contenders aimed for podium places, and the chance to represent the College in wider competitions while others put forward their personal best and contribute to the inter-house championship.

Well done Stark for retaining the top honours! We wish those going onto the zone competitions the best of luck.
