Start of Winter Activities

This week, we commenced our Winter Co-curricular season, and it has been pleasing to see so many enthusiastic students and coaches making a positive start.

This weekend we will have our first round of internal trials for a number of sports. It is still early in the season and no teams will be finalised until Term 2. Please note that selections will be based on performance, attitude and application, and we will continue to make adjustments over the entire season.


Last weekend we saw a number of students representing the College in both Athletics and Sailing.
