Last Friday (27 September) Amadeus International School, Vienna held the third edition of the AV Mile on our beautiful campus here in the 18th district.
Staff and students from all three house teams dressed up in their house colors, used face paint, flew banners and displayed posters to create an excellent crowd atmosphere leading up to the races. DJ Laurenz from Grade 11 provided the motivational tunes to get the crowd going, and that, coupled with an incredible number of parents, families, and friends supporting the runners, made for a perfect day. For the AV Mile, students, staff and parents had the opportunity to run in the various age group categories to compete for the top five places to earn house points. But points were not only awarded to those top five places; every runner who took part won participation points, and it was fantastic to see so many runners this year winning extra points for their house team!
After last year’s extremely competitive AV Mile, we did not expect to see too many records broken this year. But the students really took it to another level, with new records being set in almost every race category in 2019. We now know that next year will be just as thrilling! Whether running, volunteering or supporting, AV would like to express a huge thank you to everyone who was involved in making this event a success! From the maintenance team to the catering staff, from the photography crew to the members of our AVCA, from the school office to student volunteers, from the sound team to all members of staff, we would like to express a massive, MASSIVE thank you! All members of the Amadeus community played their part to make this yet another special day at AV. Well done again to all of the runners who took part! See you all next year!
