Giants Cup AFL
Our Opens girls AFL team competed in the Giants Cup competition this week. The girls had a thoroughly enjoyable day and improved with each game. They are all keen to play again next year and have definitely caught the AFL bug. A big thank you to Miss Fagan for coaching the team.
Over 800 students attended our annual athletics carnival at Dwyer Oval this week. The atmosphere was sensational with staff and students dressed in their house colours and displaying tremendous team spirit with fantastic war cries, dances and cheers of support for their fellow students competing for their house group. The array of costumes of the senior students was truly awesome. A lot of work had gone into the costumes and they were a definite highlight of the day. All students who competed in events are to be congratulated on their enthusiastic participation and exemplary behaviour. A big thank you to the PDHPE staff for their time, effort and dedication in organising the carnival, and to all staff for their efforts in helping with the smooth running of the day including competing in events and earning points for their houses. House spirit is truly alive!!
