It was a fitting send off for a wonderful group of young people. We are so proud of them and wish each and every one of them every success for the future. ... See MoreSee Less

Staff versus year 12s sporting seriesIt’s a tradition. Each year the Health and Physical Education Department organise a staff versus year 12s sporting series. It’s a fun way to send-off our students and an eagerly awaited event on the school calendar. This year there were volleyball, basketball, netball and futsal sporting matches making it bigger and better than ever. It also had a name change – Year 12 versus the World (Staff).To cut a long story short – the SRC staff were victorious, showing the Year 12s how it’s done. For more thrilling details about the individual games, read on.Netball. The conditions were fantastic, and enthusiasm was high for our staff-student netball game. The staff went out to lead early in the first half with 7 goals unanswered. The students dug deep to make up the difference, one goal after another until finally the buzzer went. They eventually caught up, but time was on the staff’s side and the game ended just before the students could pass the 7 goals they scored. A Round 1 tied finish meant that the stakes were higher for each following round.Result: Staff and students tied 7 all.Volleyball. The staff-student volleyball game ended in victory for the graduating cohort with a score of 35 to 24. It was a spectacular match. The gym was filled with spectators and there were many brilliant moments where the audience went wild! It was a phenomenal event, and the staff will remember the bitter taste of defeat as they train hard for next year’s event.Result: Students defeat staff 35 to 24Futsal. Both staff and students played a hard-fought futsal game in front of the wild crowd. Drama, excitement and tragedy all unfolded in a rush, with players razzle dazzling with their skills. Staff felt the heartbreak when the students conceded their first, second and third goal. But, finally, with slick skills and a wealth of experience, the staff managed to come out on top, scoring 4 to 0. Result: Staff own students, 4 to 0.Basketball. The stakes were high for the basketball match. From the first whistle to the last hoop the game was fast paced and high energy. The students took the lead early, however, were unable to score in the second half. After a few questionable fouls and many rebounds, the teachers took the convincing win 10 points to 3. Result: Staff 10 defeating students 3. Farewell Year 12s from the HPE Department. We wish you all the best. ... See MoreSee Less
