Mini Schools and Excursions

Sports Days Invitation and Captain Nominations

As of 2017 all KDEC students will be offered the chance to be involved in the Karabar High School sports carnival program as the BRINDABELLAS. The name was chosen because it represents a place where people from all of the surrounding areas gathered for stories and to build lifelong friendships. The colours will be light grey with a touch of white to represent the snow caps on the mountains in winter, the emblem will be the eucalypt leaves which signify something familiar from all your regions and your motto/tag will be 'You can come here'. Looking forward to seeing you at the Sports Days!

Carnival Dates:
Swimming - 7 February
X Country - 23 March (see attached information sheet)
Athletics - 6 April
