Fred Xu - Table Tennis

Fred played in the Table Tennis Australian Championships in Alice Springs last week and they won. Queensland have not won the championship since 2001 so it is very special!! if you see him he will proudly show you his gold medal.

Senior School House Athletics Carnival: Friday 22 and Saturday 23 July

For the full program of times and events, please click here or from the link in the Somerset App.

  • Arrive: 8.15am on each day: students are to arrive in their House sports uniform and move straight to their House tent area (rolls will be taken by PC leaders).
  • Food and drinks: there will be food and drinks for sale, for both students and parents (EPTPOS, cash and smartcards). Students should also bring snacks, a water bottle, hat and sunscreen. The P&F will have a food stall at the Koala House. These can be purchased via cash or EFTPOS or by purchasing vouchers with student smartcards for key items from the Trackside Snacks Kiosk.
  • Parents: are welcome to attend on each day and it is recommended to bring a fold up chair or rug to sit on but you are also welcome to move around with your son/daughter as they go through the rotation of events.
  • Attendance: all students are expected to remain at the College until 3.30pm. Presentations will take place at the conclusion on Saturday. Please do not take your son/daughter home prior to this. We are wanting to encourage a team approach and everyone is responsible for being a part of the team.
  • Saturday is the only day of the school year which students are required to attend sport on a weekend. As such, it is expected that this be treated as a priority over other weekend commitments. Any concerns can be directed to the Heads of House.
  • Records: this will be our first House Athletics meet on our new track. As such, we are expecting some track records to fall (previous grass track records will be archived). All records will be listed in the programme and on the back window of the timing room.
  • Results: all results will be pinned on the back window of the timing room and posted on Schoolbox.
  • APS Carnival: will be held on Wednesday 10 August. Somerset are the defending champions and the team will be announced the week after the carnival. Practices continue daily at 7.00am at the track.
