Cross Country Carnival 2017 @Gumdale


Congratulations to the junior school on their fantastic efforts at the 2017 cross country carnival. Students from Prep to Year 2 completed the race with the help from the grade 6 student leaders. All students who ran should be very proud of themselves as they showed true Gumdale spirit at this event. 

The Senior Cross Country carnival was postponed due to weather and a makeup date will be announced in the coming weeks.
