In early December 2015, Taka Ishii, Nicholas Pridham, (Year 11) and Bryce O'Hara (Year 12) were selected to play in the Gold Coast Pirates 16s and Under Baseball team at the Queensland State Titles, held in Ipswich from Thursday 21 January to Sunday 24 January 2016.

Unfortunately, the Gold Coast Pirates were not successful in making it to Nationals, but every player on the team improved their baseball skills and most of all had fun playing against some strong competition from some of the Brisbane teams.

APS Swimming Carnival

Our APS Swimming Team had excellent results, taking out 3rd Place in what is one of Queensland’s toughest school swimming competitions. The team was well led by Toby Wilson and Julia Gibson and as usual, it was the depth from our squad who all gave their best and who showed great team spirit in their support of each other which really stood out.
