On Tuesday 20 April Tintern Grammar held the annual House Athletics Carnival at Bill Sewart Athletics Track in East Burwood. With the carnival not being held in 2020 due to COVID-19, both staff and students were excited for the carnival.

With the weather forecast being for a cold day with rain predicted in the afternoon, everyone was hoping that it would hold off until after the carnival. The atmosphere during the carnival was amazing as students competed with determination to ensure that they scored as many points for their house as possible.

Staff and students supported their houses throughout the day and the scoring was extremely close for most of the day, with only a small margin between first and fourth place. Around lunchtime, the rain set in for the afternoon and unfortunately due to the worsening track conditions, the carnival had to be abandoned after the 200m events.
