Year 8 Football

Congratulations to the Year 8 Boys Football team who, against the odds, were able to overcome other district schools with just 14 players and will now go on to a regional level on the 30th of July. Under the captaincy of Kaden E and leadership of Remy F and Darcy W, all the boys were able to link up and create space while ensuring support for each other during contested ball gets. A special mention goes out to Jules P who was voted the Most Valuable Player, coming across from Soccer. It was easy to see this student could have a bright future in the sport of AFL. All the best to this team going forward.

Years 7 and 8 Cross Country Report

This week, Cross Country was held at Edinburgh Gardens for Years 7 and 8 students. Cross Country requires speed, stamina, endurance and, most of all, a positive and strong mind set. These young students were able to push themselves, achieving a sense of self-pride after completing the 2.2km Cross Country course. For some students, it was about going fast. For others, it was the sense of pride and the fact that they were earning points for their school house while achieving a personal best. Overall, students should be congratulated for their individual efforts. Congratulations and all the best to the below students who will go on to represent the school at a Division level on 22 May 2019. These students will be presented with a ribbon during next week’s sports session.
