2019 Track and Field Carnival


The 2019 Track and Field Carnival is fast approaching. Thursday 30 May is our selected events day and Friday 31 May is the official full school Carnival. There will be a great carnival atmosphere on the day, with many ways for students to have fun and be involved. Competitive and participation races will be held on the track, and field events will occur throughout the two days (see details below).

The Track and Field Carnival is the only day on the PBC calendar that brings all students together in competition and fun. House Leaders encourage all students to dress up in their House colours and represent their House with pride on the day. Athenians – Yellow; Spartans – Blue; Phoenicians – Red; Vikings – Green
Extra activities have been booked and are always a huge hit with the students. This year the activities include: Bubble Soccer, Giant Slide, Inflatable Obstacle Courses and Ninja Wall. To partake in these activities, students will need to purchase a wristband ($5). These will be on sale before school Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (carnival day). We recommend that wristbands are purchased before the day.
