This year’s Gladiator Day began with a deafening cheer-off between our four Paper Houses—Mackenzie, Lefevre, Sheldrake and Pullen—and then the cheering continued throughout a series of chariot races in the McEwen Gym.
The students were then pumped as they broke up into two teams per house to tackle the outdoor events—inflatable challenges, sponge wars, slip ‘n slide and greasy watermelon relay, and finished the afternoon session with a tough tug-of-war competition on Matthews Field.
Everyone then gathered down at the waterfront for the final event - Gladiator Jousting on Lake Katchewanooka. It was a fierce competition as junior girl and boy as well as senior girl and boy representatives from each house jousted against each other in elimination rounds. Final winners were two from Pullen, one from Mackenzie and one from Lefevre.
Thanks to the School Life Class for another wonderful spirit event!
