During Term One, students from Years 4 to 9 undertook a set of standardised fitness tests in their P.E. lessons. These tests were administered by Dr Annette Eastwood (College Exercise Physiologist) and Emma Sturges (College Strength and Conditioning Coach).

The students who completed all the Term One tests were issued with a certificate of achievement in Week 10, Term One.

Harrison Smith (recently crowned Queensland Champion 50m and 100m breaststroke) having his blood lactate levels tested by Dr Annette Eastwood, Somerset Exercise Physiologist. This is part of the ongoing work Dr Eastwood is doing to provide our elite athletes with feedback and information rarely available to athletes outside a Sports Institute.

The process this term is to continue with some more testing and also identify those students who exhibited exceptional fitness levels in the tests already conducted and invite them to participate in one of the College’s many elite pathway Sport programmes. We will also be creating opportunities for students who wish to improve their basic fitness levels to work with Emma Sturges in a health focused supported training programme.
