2018 Athletic Sports Day

Last Thursday 1 March, HBHS made its annual trek to Porritt Stadium to contest the 2018 Athletic Sports Day in conditions that were, for the first time in quite some time, not ferociously hot.  This meant for an excellent day's running, jumping and throwing, and we congratulate our age group champions on their efforts.  Two records were broken, with Year 10 student Regan Peters (Steel House) setting a new Junior High Jump record of 1.73 metres, and the Wilson House Relay team running a spectacularly fast 4 x 100m in 46.72 seconds.  The House points were very tightly contested, with four Houses finishing on 7 points behind a victorious (and mighty) Argyle House.  The overall House points, after two events, are also very close, although even the most optimistic of Tait House supporters would have to admit that there's some work to be done.  We thank and congratulate all of the athletes who competed so well, and thank Mr Todd Miller and the HPW Faculty on another superbly run sports day.
