Benowa SHS Homestead Athletics Carnival

19/06/2015

As we have done successfully in previous years the 2015 Benowa SHS Homestead Track & Field Carnival will be held at Griffith University Athletics Track. This year’s Carnival will be held on Thursday 25th June.  This is a compulsory school day. Once again there will be no pre-carnival nominations therefore we encourage all students to come along and “have a go”. Whilst we want to find the winning homestead, age champions and select the best school team possible we certainly celebrate every student for being the best that they can be where ever they finish in their respective events.
