The Winter Lightning Carnivals are held at the Year 7, 8 & 9 levels and involve modified winter sports. The carnivals are run during early Term 2. Schools have shown a tendency to involve their full cohort groups for the Year 7 and 8/9 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.
In 2021, the carnivals will involve Year 7 students based on a stand alone day. The Year 8/9 carnival will also be held during the same week.
Year 7- Monday 9 August
Year 8/9 - Wednesday 11 August
Sports that are currently offered at the winter carnivals include:
Boys: Soccer, Football (AFL), Rugby Union, Basketball
Girls: Netball, Soccer, Football (AFLW)
Mixed: Touch, Frisbee, Tennis (TBC 2021), Hockey
No Limits/Inclusion: Mixed Netball (Wednesday), Mixed Hockey (Monday)
