On the last day of term one students showed off their athletic ability at Ararat College’s House Athletic Sports, held at Alexandra Oval.
The Year 12s began the day, entering the oval dressed up in costumes supporting their house colours.
Students achieved record-breaking results throughout the competition whilst also supporting fellow competitors.
Sports Coordinator Michael Spalding congratulated event winners, record breakers and age group champions who will now be offered the opportunity to attend Black Ranges Athletics in Stawell.
“Congratulations to Hopkins for repeating their 2017 success by winning the Overall and Boys’ aggregate and Pyrenees winning the Girls’ aggregate,” Spalding said.
“A huge thank you to staff for judging events throughout the day, Mr Bowles for his hours of preparation entering students into events on the computer, and Jodie and Mel for offering a canteen.”
Grampians also held a fundraiser throughout the day, selling slices and sausages in support of the Daniel Morcombe Foundation.
