Successful students at our school carnivals go on to represent Springwood Public School at the Zone Carnivals. Students will then compete for the opportunity to progress to Regional and State Carnivals.
In addition, we also hold a carnival for students in Years K-2. The focus is on participation, development of fundamental movement skills and most importantly having fun!
