Lightning Carnivals


Year 7 & Year 8/9 Lightning Carnival

Printer-friendly version

The Junior Lightning Carnivals are held at the Year 7, 8, and 9 levels and involve modified winter sports. Schools have shown a tendency to involve their full cohort groups for the Year 7-9 carnivals. However, if a school chooses to involve a portion of that group, participation is still highly encouraged. All options carry the same responsibilities with regard to staffing and supervision.

Year 7  |  Monday 8th May 2023

Year 8/9  |  Tuesday 9th May 2023
