Year 12 Physical Education

This week Ms Hambly’s  Year 12 Physical Education class participated in their final practical. The girls have been learning about energy systems and fitness components and were excited to attend the Ninja Parc to put their theory into practice completing some very challenging obstacle courses. 

Secondary School Surf League Program

Our 2020 College Surf Life Saving Team took out a very close second place competing in the Secondary School Surf League Program. Molly Roberts picked up third place in the U15 age group. We are so proud of you all! Bring on 2021! 


Our Rowing Team showed true heart and passion, proudly wearing the blue, white and gold for our College at the first regatta of the year. First time rowers Sarah de Haan, Ella Woodhouse, Eliza Betteridge, Ella D’Mello, Alliyah Kelemete and Edan Watson showed incredible spirit and determination. Our seniors, Lucia Rentoule Gallagher and Sophy Cafferky modelled the way with a strong and steady commitment in their doubles event. The dynamic duo of Lily Bragg and Olive Dury was on display, placing first in the Year 8 doubles finals, while our 9/10 quad showed the power of teamwork, made up of Sarah Bourke, Montanna Jones, Emily Black and Lily Bragg (Cox- Olive Dury) scored a hard-fought third place in their final.

The 2nd Townsville All Schools Regatta of the season was held at Townsville & JCU Rowing Club on Sunday 23 August. This regatta saw the introduction of singles to the draw, meaning a very demanding day of racing. The success of our rowing team continues with the following results achieved in the finals:

  • Year 8 Girls Single -1st Lily Bragg
  • Year 8 Girls Double – 2nd Lily Bragg and Olive Dury
  • Year 9/10 Girls Single – 2nd Sarah Bourke
  • Open Girls Single – 3rd Sophy Cafferky
  • Year 8 Girls Quad – 5th Lily Bragg, Sarah de Haan, Olive Dury, Aliyah Kelemete
  • Year 9/10 Girls Double – 5th Sarah Bourke, Emily Black

It is wonderful to see our rowers being able to compete and reap the rewards from their hard work and early mornings.  Our junior rowers, new to the sport and the tempo of competition, are conducting themselves strongly and showing much promise. 

Our team is stepping up again this Sunday at Riverway Rowing Club for the shortened season’s 3rd Regatta, the last outing before Head of the River on 20 September.  We wish them all the best of luck.
