On Sunday 10 September we came together as a community to host our inaugural Amazing Race at St Finbar’s Glenbrook. The weather was amazing and the company even better. The O’Callaghan Family were our master planners and they did a wonderful job creating the event. Competitors roamed the streets of Glenbrook matching images with house numbers; they skirmished through the long jump pit at Glenbrook Oval to find a parachute man to construct and then come back on site to drop onto a target. Other challenges involved teams identifying characters from books and translating music lyrics as well as paper plane throwing. The day concluded with a bbq supplied by the P and F We thank the P and F for their generosity of time and providing the bbq. It is events like this that build community and this is why St Finbar’s is such a great place to be.
