The Secondary Track and Field Carnival was held at the College on Friday 26 April.

Students from Years 7 to 12 were encouraged to participate in as many events as they could, earning their Houses bonus points for trying. Those wishing to participate at a more competitive level were challenged to beat their personal bests and strive for places on district teams. The dedication and skill displayed by the young athletes at the Carnival, resulted in several long-standing records being broken, including:
