Years 5-12 House Athletics Carnival

ES Marks Athletic Field

The College’s House Athletics Carnival for Years 5-12 will take place on Friday June 18, 2021 at ES Marks Athletics Field — entry via Boronia Street in Kensington (off Anzac Parade).

The emphasis of the day is participation and friendly House competition. The day is also an excellent opportunity for students to display their talents (hidden or known), in order to gain selection in the College Athletics Team. Students will compete in their age category. 

Do not let your son stay at home even if he does not like athletics. The day is a great community and House team building occasion. Resilience is built at times when we sometimes do not want to do something.    

Dress to and from school: College tracksuit

Dress at the arena: House shirt, College shorts, House coloured garments, College cap, sunscreen.


  • Students who require transport to the venue must be at school by 8am


  • Students making their own way to the venue must be there no later than 8:45am
  • Buses will return students to school or they make their own way home.

*Any students interested in participating in Javelin or 3K run must be at ES Marks by 8am.

Please note:

Food: Canteen facilities are available at the venue but please be warned they are not cheap. Students are encouraged to bring their lunch/drink with them. The canteen is CASH ONLY.
