Carmel entered a team of Year 5 and 6 students in the annual Touch Rugby Carnival at John XXIII on Thursday 11 November. Students played a mixed team format over seven games. A number of these players had trained conscientiously after school for several weeks prior so were well prepared for their encounters. Touch is a fast-flowing, running, passing game so interchanging players regularly is the key to conserving energy and allowing the coaching staff to match and counter the opposition. Carmel players worked cohesively and can be well pleased with their efforts, winning five of their seven games.
