NAS Competition – Term 1

Round 1 of the NAS Summer season was completed this week. Years 7 -10 competed strongly against John XX111 with many great team performances taking place. Some of the many highlights include the come from behind victory by our Yr 10 Boys Basketballers and the fantastic efforts by our undermanned Yr 10 AFLW girls overcoming a strong John XX111 outfit. Big thank you to all players and coaches for committing to teams this term. Next week is a bye, however we look forward to further fun and exciting competition in week 6 when we compete against Chisholm Catholic College in Round 2.

Guild Swimming Carnival

Congratulations to all students who competed in last week’s School Swimming Carnival at HBF Stadium. All students swam hard in trying to maximise points for their Guilds and many Personal Bests were achieved along the way. Due to Year 12’s being on Retreat this week, the overall Guild winner and Age Champions will be announced on Tuesday at a special assembly. There were many outstanding individual performances at the Carnival with 7 School records being broken:

  • Oliver Groughan (Yr 7 Boys 100m Freestyle)
  • Jessica Bourke (Yr 7 Girls 50m Freestyle and 50m Butterfly)
  • Jake Paynter (Yr 10 Boys 50m Freestyle, 50m Butterfly and 100m Freestyle)
  • Imogen Boss (Yr 9 Girls 50m Freestyle)

Our preliminary ACC Inter-School Swim Team has been announced. The squad has been training hard Tuesday and Thursday mornings and we look forward to competing in the A Division ACC Carnival in Week 8. Next Friday we have another opportunity for Years 7-10 swimmers to press for final selection at the NAS Swim Meet being held at the Newman Pool. Click here to view more pictures taken from the event.
