Merry Christmas

As we approach the end of the academic year, it is the perfect time to reflect on the year that has been; the growth of our students both personally and in their learning, and the many activities they have been involved in, and excelled at, that has made this year special for each and every one of them.

Last weekend saw our Middle School cricketers tour Melbourne and Geelong. Matches were arranged against Carey Grammar and Geelong College,

Our young cricketers performed extremely well winning a close game against Carey Grammar and losing a rain-affected match against Geelong College.

Over the two days, we were able to involve all players in games. Captained by Charlie Skipper, the team consisted of a lot of characters and personalities. They not only gave their best but also enjoyed each other’s company throughout the weekend.

Highest scores were Oscar Winspear 42 and Ollie McFarlane 37 not […]
