School Carnivals

Throughout the year, Ormeau Woods holds annual swimming, cross country and athletics carnivals. These carnivals are designed to maximise student participation and building of relationships.

Run in the Sun (cross country) is a day that not only allows students the opportunity to compete in cross country and qualify for the school district team, but also a day where the student council will raise money for a chosen charity to support. 
Ormeaulympics is our annual athletics carnival, held in term 2.  Again, a fun day had by all students and staff involved, as well as an opportunity provided for students to raise money for various school endeavours on the day through a number of different fun activities available.
