St. John’s were victorious in three out of the four heats with their A team winning heat 1, C team winning heat 3 and D team winning heat 4 respectively.  St. Joseph’s B won heat 2.

During the festival, the Spirit of the Games value ‘Passion’ was a key focus area.  One member from each team was was presented with a special certificate to recognise their positive attitude and enthusiasm throughout the festival.
