Our Swimming Squad set out on an exciting day representing the Northern Metropolitan Region for their events which we sent out 12 swimmers for the day.

We had some fantastic results, showing that swimming at the school is on the rise.

Star swimmer Alesha McIntosh finished as our best swimmer on the day with 3 thirds and a second, racing against much older racers.

Jack Hayton finished with a 5th place.

Our girls and boys 4 x 200m freestyle relay both finished 6th in their respective events.

Year 7 Cricket

Our Year 7 Cricket team had their first round of competition out at Epping in perfect cricket weather at the start of autumn. We had the tough first round challenge of facing Epping who are notoriously strong at this stage of competition.

Epping won the toss and decided to bat, and bat they did. They were dominant from the first ball, and in the 12 over game they failed to lose any wickets while making an unbelievable score of 101, short bowling being a main issue with our side.

Indigenous Incursion

On 24th March Friday, Year 7 students took part in an incursion. Our Indigenous Elder for the area of Whittlesea, Ian Hunter, presented to students stories about the ways of life for Aboriginal people from the past and made connections to the present. He identified the past struggles, their beliefs in nature and the environment and place people have in this world.

Year 7 Tennis and Volleyball

Our newest cohort had their first interschool sports competition when we hosted volleyball at our recreation centre. A full boys and girls team were very excited when they entered the nine team round robin.

Year 8 Tennis

Our Year 8 Tennis team played in torrential conditions in our district competition. Our young and inexperienced team came up against some strong tennis teams in what was a tough day out.

Our team was well beaten across both their games against Epping and Mill Park. Zachary Baker was our best performer on the day playing in the number 2 position, winning both his games against his opponents. Our boys showed fantastic sportsmanship on the day and enjoyed the tennis experience Melbourne style.

Year 8 Volleyball

Whittlesea Secondary College hosted our district Volleyball for our Year 8s. Playing against nine other schools, it was a tough day of competition where a lot of ability was shown.

Our girls completed their three games with one big win against Gilson College. The two games that we lost were close encounters where our girls fought gallantly but were beaten by physically bigger sides.

On the 27th of March the students in Year 10 History went on an excursion to the Holocaust Centre in Elsternwick. Whilst we were there we saw numerous sources of first hand evidence of what happened during World War Two and we heard stories from survivors David and Abraham.
