Fixtures and Venue Maps

Basketball, Touch Football, Tennis

Last weekend saw a big first full round of activities for all students. A number of the new Year 7 teams demonstrated some outstanding performances, particularly in Basketball, Touch Football and Tennis.

Our 2nd V Basketball remain undefeated after a comprehensive victory. Our 1st V Basketball went down narrowly but were very well supported by students and staff, and I want to thank all of the members of the College community who came to cheer these players on.

This Friday evening the 1sts and 2nds Basketball are travelling to St Aloysius’, and any supporters must be attired in full College summer uniform please.

NSW Beach Volleyball – Congratulations, Cooper Ryan

Special mention to Cooper Ryan (Year 9) who last weekend won a gold medal in the NSW Beach Volleyball titles and has now qualified for the national championships. Cooper was competing in the u16 and open categories as a 14 year old – what an amazing achievement!
