NASHS School Carnival
This event was based on mass participation with all students in Years 7-12 competing.
There were some amazing individual and team performances as students pushed themselves to the limit in order to record their best times. Many Individual and relay record times were broken on the day.
One of the most impressive races was the Year 7 boy's, with the first four across the line (Josh Tracey, Hamish Bowles, Harvey Taylor and Riley Robertson) all easily surpassing the previous record.
The winning Faction was Michaelmas who edged out Eclipse by a couple of hundred points. Waitari was in third place, followed by Breaksea.
Last week, NASHS took a strong team of approximately 100 students to Great Southern Grammar to compete in the interschool carnival. A number of students placed in the top three for their age group with Year 12 students, Kyle Kowalski and Jade Dekker both winning their respective races.
Whilst NASHS students only won a couple of races, the strength of the team stood out as our runners continually finished in the top half of their field, thus earning more points for the school. Our fantastic depth propelled us to a convincing win in the lower school (Year 7-9) competition.
NASHS narrowly came second to Great Southern Grammar in the Senior School competition (Year 10-12) and after the two scores were added together, we also claimed overall honours from Great Southern Grammar.
State Cross Country Championships
On Friday the 17th of May, 18 NASHS students participated in the All Schools Cross Country Championships that was held in Perth.
Our students represented the school and region with great pride, recording some outstanding results together with exemplary behaviour. Students were selected to attend based on their efforts in the School Cross Country and Interschool Carnivals.
The Perth Championships were a highly competitive event, with elite runners from across the state participating. In some races, there were over 250 competitors with a number of our students placing in the top 40 for their respective age groups.
Kerri Williams was the top NASHS competitor, running a fantastic race with a very strong run, finishing 19th. Well done to all who competed!
