BEST SWIMMERS IN THE STATE!
29 April 2022
Well, our Grade 6 girls have done it again, achieving even better results this year. Priscilla, Shiloh, Tijana and Zara became state champions in not just one but two separate relay races. It goes to show what hard work, dedication and sheer determination can produce. Well done to our team who competed at state level at the Melbourne Sports and Acquatic Centre (MSAC), representing the region in four separate events. They achieved a first place in the Individual Medley Relay and the Freestyle Relay, making them the fastest swimmers in the state. Zara also came home with a very close second place in the 50m Butterfly and a third in the 50m Freestyle.
What an impressive way to finish off their primary school years, knowing they have achieved these exceptional results as a swimming team.

They placed 2nd on the day against the best of the best in Victoria. They also achieved a personal best for their team by 9 seconds!!! Our congratulations go to the girls for their continuous hard work and for always striving to be the best they can be.
Our 2014 Football Team produced the best results we ever had in the School Sport Victoria competition. The team, comprising students from Grades 6 and 5, won 14 straight games which included a grand final win over St Anne's at the Eastern Metropolitan level. They then advanced to the state quarter finals where they lost in "extra time" to St Mary's Wooroopna in a nail biting game at Wangaratta. Well done team, we are so proud of your talent and fighting spirit.
We would like to congratulate Amber, who finished Grade 6 in 2010 and has recently been selected to play hockey for the Victorian U21 state team. She was also part of the U18 Victorian team that won a silver medal at the national championships in April 2015.
We also have a tennis champion in Jasmin S who finished here in 2012. Jasmin has, for the second time, earned a place in the School Sport Victoria Tennis Team, playing for the U/19 team at just 14 years of age. The team once again came second at the Australian Championships which were held in Hobart earlier this year.
