This week we prepare for next Friday’s APS Winter Sports Trials. All students should have selected a team to trial for and be considering other options if required.

Brittany Childs - Water Polo

Brittany competed in Townsville last weekend representing the Gold Coast at the state titles for Water Polo. She has now been selected as a member of the Queensland team to compete in the Australian Women’s Waterpolo Country Championships in Rockhampton in May later this year. This is an open age Championship with many of the players being Olympians and Australian representatives, which is exceptional for Brittany as she has been selected at the age of 16.
