The Most Fantastic, Funniest Camp Ever
By Tima Korin, Year 4 Student
I loved all the activities at the Year 4 camp but my favourites were rock climbing and canoeing. Lake Ainsworth was such a beautiful, brilliant place.

Early bird training sessions are now up and running on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7.00am to 8.15am at the College Pool. This is open to all students from Year 3 to Year 6.

The Somerset College Junior Swimming Training Squad (The Somerset Snappers) is also busy training at the same time under the supervision of Junior APS Swimming Team Manager, Mrs Kate Grigg and Mr Forrest Butcher, Head Coach – Somerset Swimming.
