We welcome back our Rugby boys from their successful tour of Canada and prepare for APS Round 1 versus Trinity this week. Wednesday saw the whole College compete at the annual Inter-House Cross Country Carnival and all results will be posted on Schoolbox.
This week three senior students from Somerset are competing in Queensland Senior State Titles in Gymnastics. This competition also serves as selection for the Queensland Team for Nationals.
Stephanie Sprague (Year 9) competed in Level 7 SEQ Regionals on the weekend to qualify for State Titles.
Matthew Sprague (Year 11) missed Regionals due to injury but has been granted entry to States (Level 7) based on performance.
Michael Dobroskok (Year 8) qualified from Level 7 Regionals in late March also to State Titles. The boys compete Friday midday and Saturday.
We wish all three well and await their results.
During the holidays, William went to Cairns with the Gold Coast Little League Representative team to the Queensland State Baseball Titles. Gold Coast went undefeated, scoring over 110 runs and allowing just 1 run during the 5 days of competition. Accordingly they have now qualified to go the National Little League Australian Championships in June 2018.
All policies and procedures are outlined in the Senior School Sport page of Schoolbox, under “Sport Policy and Dates”. All students and parents are encouraged to familiarise themselves with these.
Please note, practices are compulsory for both Winter and Summer Seasons.
Hinterland Trials are for strong performers to trial for representative selection in school sport. These lead to Regional and State teams.
Students wanting to trial for these teams, must email or come to the Sports Department ASAP. All trials are listed on the Sports Page of Schoolbox (“Representative Sport” tile) and announced in Notices during the week.
Every day at 7.00am to 8.15am
Meet Ms McKenna and Ms Oppermann at the Track, all welcome.
All students selected for the APS Squad will be notified by email, along with their parents. In Week 4 the Annual APS Cross Country Carnival will take place at Runaway Bay. The program will soon be posted on Schoolbox. Students will also have the opportunity for a practice run at the venue 1 week prior, afterschool on Thursday 3 May.
