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.
Mark Pitura, Junior School Sports Co-ordinator
Well done the Year 4 and 5 Netball girls who represented the College and won their division at GT Netball Trophy, held at All Saints, Thursday 7 June. The Year 4 Girls Futsal Team also won their division at the annual APS Futsal Showcase held at the Carrara on the same day.
Considering around 30 Netball teams from across nine schools from Years 4 to 6 competed in the all day Netball competition, the results from all teams were fantastic. Congratulations to all Junior Sports teams!
