Swish swash: the noise of the angry river. Clip clop: the animals who were fleeing. Drip drop: the noise of the river’s last drops.

A great afternoon was had this week in Round 2 of Season 1 APS Sport when we took on Saint Stephen’s College. The sportsmanship displayed by our students was fantastic and the support shown by parents was superb.
The rain all week did not stop play but saw the students having great fun. Go Spartans!
Next week on Monday 1 April we have our Pre-Prep to Year 6 Inter-House Cross Country Carnival from 12.00pm at the Somerset Track. Students can arrive at school on Monday in their House Sports uniform.
Pre-Prep to Year 3 races will commence at 12.00pm and conclude by 1.00pm when students will return to their classes. Races will run in order of year level beginning with PP and finishing with Year 3.
Years 4 to 6 races will commence at 1.00pm. Races will run in order of age groups, beginning at 9 years and finishing with the 12-year-old students (includes 12-year-old students from Year 7).
Presentations for Years 3 to 6 will take place at 2.30pm
Parents, we encourage you to come along and support your children throughout the afternoon, taking as many photos as you like! Be advised that you are not permitted to enter the middle of the track or be on the track at any time throughout the afternoon, you also cannot run with, or alongside your children.
Remember that all students must have a water bottle and a hat with them on the day.
Queensland Youth State Surf Lifesaving Titles were held at Burleigh Heads last weekend, when two Year 6 Somerset College students had great success.
Lily from Tugun Surf Lifesaving Club won a Silver Medal in the U11 Girls Cameron Relay.
Ryan from Miami Surf Lifesaving Club won a Gold Medal in the U12 Boys Sprint Relay (note as an U11 who raced up an age group to help the U12s win gold).
