P-2 Athletics CarnivalOn October 22 and October 29 the SMC P-2 and Kinder Athletics Carnivals were held on the College Green. Though the forecast was for rainy weather, we were blessed with sunshine on both days and even had to get out the sunscreen! Students had a fantastic time with buddy races, egg and spoon races, sprints and sack races. As usual, the parent races were also a highlight.
