Quinn House Report – Term 1, 2019

From Head of Quinn House, Olivia Kite

So far, 2019 has been a successful year for the students of Quinn House.

Year 7 Camp

Year 7 began their journey at the College attending Year 7 Camp in Broken Bay.

The camp is a wonderful opportunity for students to build friendships, gain confidence, explore Australia’s history, support and encourage one another through a range of physical and mental activities, test their Harry Potter trivia knowledge and bake damper over an open fire. Our newest Quinn members showed leadership, kindness, initiative, mateship and a love for the outdoors. The boys returned from camp excited about their new friendships and eager to start the academic year.

Big Brother Little Brother

Our Year 5 and Year 10 Little Brothers and Big Brothers spent time together this Term getting to know one another. The Quinn Boys spent the morning playing tug-o-war, touch football and soccer in Waverley Park. This opportunity gave both groups of boys the chance to be active, develop friendships and learn to communicate and engage with people from different grades, backgrounds and experiences.

Thank you to all the teachers and mentors involved who made the day a success.

Swimming Carnival and CAS

Term 1 saw the Senior Swimming Carnival take place at Des Renford Aquatic Centre. After some fierce competition, chanting and a lot of enthusiasm, Quinn House placed second on the day. Congratulations to Brennan House who won the carnival.
