Year 7 Spectators – IGSSA Athletics Carnival
It has been a tradition at Danebank for all Year 7 students to spectate at the Independent Girls Schools’ Athletics Carnival. This will be a great experience for the girls to see how an Athletics meet is organised. Every Sydney based IGSSA school brings spectators to cheer and support their athletics team and we are proud of the wonderful school spirit this has promoted.
