When: Thursday 25th February (Week 4)
Where: HBF Stadium (Challenge Stadium)
Time: 9.30am – 2.30pm

The carnival is an excellent opportunity for students to participate with enthusiasm, show pride for their House and appreciate the excellence of the top swimmers at the College. Parents and family are very welcome to attend and experience the Corpus spirit. We always appreciate the support given by parents, both in the stands and by ensuring their sons/daughters comply with expectations, which ensures a positive and enjoyable experience for all.

A reminder that attendance at the carnival is compulsory and all students are expected to participate in either the main or minor carnival. Any non-attendance or non-participation requires a letter to the House Coordinator prior to the event. Non-participants are expected to assist with the running of the Carnival on the day. Participation at Inter-house events is part of the graduation expectations of Senior School students and absences are not tolerated.

In previous years, parents have also played a key role in assisting the staff of the Physical Education Department during the day. If parents are interested in helping this year, please contact Sheldon McIntyre (6332 2613 or ). We always appreciate your help and support.

Sheldon McIntyre
Head of Health and Physical Education
