Recent Events

Inter-House Swimming Sports:

Wednesday February 25th proved to be a fantastic day for our annual Inter-House Swimming Sports competition. The competitive championship swimmers were in the pool from 8:00am, making an incredible start to an equally incredible day. New students to the College, particularly Jordyn Patterson and Tommaso Caralli, were literally making waves as they cut through the water to record some impressive results.
In the afternoon, the rest of the student body joined in, supporting their House swimmers in the 50m freestyle finals, then making their contribution in the 'fun' events and House relays. The results are still under wraps until tomorrow's Assembly, so watch this space!
As always, our thanks and gratitude to the Sports and PE departments for the immense amount of time and effort invested in both the Athletic and Swimming Sports. Both events were absolutely stellar and we have you guys to thank for that!

Inter-House Athletic Sports:

On Wednesday and Friday (February 11th and 13th) we had our annual Inter-House Athletic Sports competition. Overall, the event was incredibly successful, with massive numbers of students from each House participating. The results are still in the process of being tallied but we are proud to report that at least three event records have been broken:
  ~ Carla Whittaker - Intermediate Girls' Javelin;
 ~ Niwa Wilson - Intermediate Boys' 100m;
 ~ Shay Syme - Junior Boys' High Jump.
More news and the final results will be published when they are made available.
