Whittlesea Secondary College Debating Team

The Whittlesea Secondary College Debating Team went to Loyola College on Monday 18th April to compete against Parade College in the second round of debates. The topic for the debate was:

‘That professional sports should have separate leagues that permit the use of performance enhancing drugs’.

Athletics Carnival
The Athletics Carnival was held at the Meadowglen International Athletics Stadium last Tuesday. All field and track events were available for students to compete in on the day.
After a drizzly start the sun came out and we had a healthy amount of competition on the day across all year levels. Highlights were the inaugural "dress up 50m dash" in which Zac Rizzotto took the chocolate prize for running in his "death clown" outfit. We also had a large amount of costumes from our fabulous year 12 cohort.

Year 7 Boys Cricket

The Year 7 Boys Cricket Team competed in the Northern Region Cricket carnival on Tuesday 2 March. Unfortunately, the boys did not progress through to the next round. They played two games for the day, winning their first game against Lalor North and narrowly losing to Epping.

GAME 1:                 Whittlesea 1/67                defeated                Lalor North 8/23

GAME 2:                 Whittlesea 36                   defeated by          Epping 5/46



Wednesday 9 March saw Year 7 students Pj Mountney, Jack Taylor, Ethan Robertson, Riley Reece and George Ianakis take part in the interschool tennis competition with Epping, Mill Park, Hazel Glen and Lalor. Their first game against Mill Park was a well fought battle by the boys, unfortunately they weren’t able to cross the line, going down by 2 points. In the second round against Mill Park they faced tough competition and were unable to progress to the next round.

Year 7 Barbeque

Just a friendly reminder to our Year 7 families that our BBQ evening on Monday the 21st of March will be held in the VCE centre from 6.30pm-8:00pm. We look forward to celebrating student achievements, reflections of camp and a night of awards.

Year 8 Volleyball

The Year 8 Volleyball Tournament was hosted at Whittlesea Secondary College between several other schools in the Whittlesea Division.

The Girls team was coached by Year 10 Student and Volleyball extraordinaire Ben Vitale, who took his team to three wins against Mill Park, Lalor and Lalor North.

Year 8 Boys Tennis

The boys Whittlesea Division Tennis Tournament at Whittlesea Tennis Club took place on Monday 29 February. Zack Ferguson, Corey Dennehy, Bailey Gandolfo, Sean Duffy and Jadyn McCarthy from Year 8 competed in the event. The boys displayed outstanding teamwork and sportsmanship throughout the day with each match self-umpired by the students. The boys played multiple singles and doubles matches against Lalor, Mill Park and Epping. Unfortunately, the competition was very strong and the boys were unsuccessful in progressing to the next round of competition.

Senior Volleyball

Late last week the Senior Boys and Girls Volleyball teams competed in the Whittlesea Division Interschool Tournament. Both teams faced strong opposition in the six school round-robin with only our girls team successful in a match, defeating Mill Park Secondary College in their penultimate game. The shot of the day went to Sarah Atkinson when the ball went through her hands as she made a desperate lunge and it miraculously landed on her right foot and sailed over the net for a winner!

Congratulations to both teams on playing the game in the right spirit throughout the day.
