Jimmies Sizzling Athletics Carnival
On Friday 22 July the sun was shining and students were out in large numbers.
This year's athletics carnival was held at Nudgee College and everyone was out to give their best on the day.
A number of records were broken in high jumping, big throwing and close races. There was possibly some seasonal weather temperature records broken on this very warm winters day.
Fierce competition and pride comes to the fore when Jimmies students are representing their house groups. At the same time there was lots of fun, with many students taking the chance to dress up for the event.
Scores were up and down all day and the winning house was going to come down to the wire.
Congratulations to all students who attended and represented their houses, without your commitment these carnivals would not be possible, a great effort.
Thank you also to all staff who battled the heat, alongside the students and coordinated age levels and events.
Finally, thank you the Kraut Family who volunteered their time to help officiate some of the field events for the college. Please find below all carnival points results, new records and age champions for 2016.
We look forward to seeing what 2017 brings to this great annual event.
