STATE ATHLETES

Three athletes were recognised as some of the best in the state at the recent WA State Athletics Championships! Congratulations to Hayden Windsor (Year 7) who achieved bronze in High Jump, Eloise Parsons (Year 9) who was awarded bronze in Pole Vault and Nicholas Holmes (Year 9) who took home a silver medal in the 2000m Steeplechase. Wow!

SWIMMING STAR

Just before commencing his final exams, Ben Popham (Year 12) dashed over to Melbourne last weekend for the Swimming Australia 2018 Awards Night. After a stellar year of racing he was awarded the AIS Discovery of the Year Award, and was one of only five swimmers nominated for the Paralympic Program Swimmer of the Year.

Congratulations Ben!

Super Series

A stellar effort by the Year 7s saw success at the Year 7 Super Series Competition last week! 61 students competed in Interschool netball, soccer and basketball games with four wonderful Year 9 and 10 students volunteering to score and umpire. The Girls Basketball team placed third and the Boys Basketball team finished fourth, while the Girls Soccer, Boys Soccer and Girls Netball teams all made the semi-finals!

END OF AN ERA FOR SPORTING SISTERS

 2018 has marked another massive year for the Edwards sisters Rachael (Year 12) and Crystal (Year 9), who have continued to make exceptional strides in swimming, cross-country and triathlon competitions across the nation. Though the sisters will no longer be navigating school sport as a pair following Rachael’s recent graduation, it hasn’t stopped their outstanding sporting results from rolling through.
