Faction Cross Country

Well done to all students on their performance in the faction cross country last Friday. It was fantastic to see everyone giving maximum effort to complete the course no matter where they place. Thanks to S3 and S4 for their assistance on the day. Many senior students ran the course multiple times helping and encouraging the younger students. Thanks to the parents and staff who assisted on the day with set up and pack up and during the events.

Senior Sport

Last term we conducted a faction competition during senior sport. The final results were: - Cygnet won the soccer and newcombe ball, Investigator the basketball and a 3-way tie for netball between Investigator, Endeavour and Parmelia. The overall competition was won by Cygnet and Investigator. Well done to all our players, it was great to see our students taking their captaincy roles responsibly as they organised their teams. Thanks again to the staff and the remarkable parent helpers Mel, Janet, Amy and Claire.
