Sports Day (Issue 2 2018 Sport)
Written on the 12 April 2018
On Friday 2 March, the 2018 students and staff arrived to the great Sacred Heart Main Oval with plenty of enthusiasm, optimism and house spirit. As 1000 students descended onto the Main Oval to contest the second Sports Day with the five new houses, Marian, Chanel, Chavoin, Montagne and Fourviere, everyone was ambitious to claim the day as the winning team.
This year Sports Day had a week long lead up as the 800m, 1500m and the tug of war heats commenced before school or throughout lunch during the week prior to Sports Day. The tally of points saw Chanel House take early lead, but there was still were to be done.
As the much anticipated Friday arrived, Dan Ryan took to the microphone as the official MC to welcome the revellers to Sports Day. Chanel House, showed the spirit of Sacred Heart, taking the Spirit Award for 2018, entering races with a strong voice, singing their cheers. The day in its entirety saw plenty of costumes, colour and excitement as students embraced the annual college community event.
We give thanks unreservedly to the student captains who did plenty of work behind the scenes and encouraged participation among their house. The staff of the College were also getting involved and showed plenty of Sacred Heart pride. The contribution that staff made to the event across the board ensured the day was a great success.
