Term Three is coming to an end with just Week 10 remaining. APS Summer Sport practices will continue and on Friday we play Intermural Games.
Olivia has been selected in the Queensland Short course Team to go to the AIS in Canberra. A great achievement as only ten 13/14 girls selected (and one of only three Gold Coasters in this age group).
Camille competed in Level 6 at the NSW Rhythmic Gymnastics State Championships on Saturday 26 August in Sydney. Being the only Queensland competitor representing the Elite Rhythmic Gymnastics Club, Camille snatched the gold medal in her perfect rope routine with an unbeatable score of 9.7.
A select number of students have been selected to represent Somerset College at the Schools Track and Field Knockout (South Queensland Final) on Saturday 9 September 2017. The competition will be held at the UQ Athletics Centre.
On the last Friday of Term Three there will be no APS Sport against an opposing school. Coaches will run organised Intermural Games for the selected Summer Sports. There will still be a number of teams catching buses to venues to play their games. All the ingredients needed to create a great afternoon of sport and finish off the Term in style.
Athletics practices are every Monday, Wednesday and Friday before school for South Coast and competitors or anyone who would like to continue training.
