The Secondary School Cross Country Carnival

The Cross Country carnival took place on Friday 11 May 2018. It was held on the oval and involved the entire Secondary School. We had numerous volunteers as well as the Parents and Friends Association helping with the set up and pack down of the event, which was greatly appreciated.

We commend all the students who participated in the Cross Country Carnival. We would however would like to recognise those students who went above and beyond to achieve Champion and Runner-Up high results as per the results listed in the table below.

The event started during Lesson four in which all the students were marshalled onto the oval. As everyone organised themselves in their tents according to their house groups, the races commenced almost immediately. The event began with the Year 7’s and it was great to see them participating for the first time in our Cross Country Carnival. The girls were off to a great start, finishing with Lara West placing as Champion girl and Jessica Murray as runner-up who were both from Moore. Following their lead were the boys who continued to set high standards with Thabiso Bayiwa from Year 7 taking the win for Moore. It was at this point that we were certain that Moore would be the winning house of this year’s carnival.

As the event continued, there was a particularly close race between the boys in Year 10. As the starting gun, shot into the sky, so did the boys; they ran as fast as lightning. Blessed Mukundu was in the lead as the boys sped past the cricket fences, down the sand and out of sight onto the bridge. As they reappeared, places switched as Antony Kenyi took the lead. The spectators were fueled with the excitement of the race, voices cheering from the sidelines as the race drew to a close. Antony Kenyi (Moore) finished the race with remarkable speed, setting a high standard. Runner-up Casey Ruyg (Waylen) followed no more than a second after him.

At the conclusion of the event, Sport Captains Georgia Nahuys and I announced the winning house and the spirit award. Waylen took home both wins due to a lead in points which was celebrated with a tremendous cheer from the entire House.

It was truly a great day! The majority of students participated, with each one pushing their way to the finishing line and despite different placements all their efforts contributed to their house points. The support and encouragement displayed was incredible. The never ending cheer and chants was great to see and hear. So, another successful carnival was complete and the last for our Year 12’s of 2018.

We look forward to seeing our champion runners soaring in the upcoming ACC Carnival. We are certain that the Year 12’s had a memorable last Cross Country Carnival as we look forward to what 2019 will bring.

Associated and Catholic Colleges Cross Country Carnival

After an incredible Interhouse Carnival, the Swan Valley Anglican Community School (SVACS) team’s spirits were high as we boarded the bus at 7:30am on Thursday 31 May 2018 heading towards the Alderbury Reserve in Floreat.

On arrival, the SVACS team found their tent, and were thankful to be out of the rain. Conditions were sadly unfavourable. Whilst there was more rain predicted in the mid-morning, we were thankful that it came in early just in time for the Under 13 Girls race.

Throughout the day, our students were exceptional, doing their very best on the course. This is a prime example of the high level of commitment displayed by the students at Swan Valley Anglican Community School. There were some outstanding results in the boys division with Ziggy Bannatee (Year 8) finishing 14th and Ethan Schimpf (Year 9) finished 44th. In the girls events Catherine Porter (Year 10) finished 8th and Matilda Sim (Year 8) finished 43rd.

All the runners performed exceptionally well, many of them beating their previous best. I am tremendously proud of their efforts, considering each event had over 400 runners. 

Well done to all participants for always striving to do their very best!
