Director of Co-curricular, Mr Steve O'Donnell

Thank you to all staff, convenors, coaches, parents/carers and especially the students for their efforts over a successful 2023 co-curricular year.

We continued this success last weekend with the selection of 1sts players Lincoln Tanner and Tristan Lee in the CAS 2024 Water Polo squad. We also had a number of boys competing in the Pacific Islands Rugby fixtures last weekend and all boys playing represented their culture to an incredibly high standard.
