Sports Corner

Whilst most of us were enjoying the sunshine, sleep-ins and lazy days to begin our school holidays, two of our Secondary sports stars were sweating it out whilst competing at the NSW All Schools Athletics Carnival held in Sydney’s Olympic Park. Montana Monk competed in two events on the day, with incredible success. Montana won the 16 yr old girls 800m in a time of 2:08.24. Not only was this a meet record, but it is the third fastest 800m ran of all time at this event! Her next race saw her win the 16yrs 1500m in a time of 4:30.30. Congratulations on your amazing success Montana. Ryan Bonham competed in the 14 yrs 3km walk, for which he won in a time of 14:04.00. Congratulations on your amazing achievement Ryan!! As the National Athletics Carnival was cancelled due to COVID, both students were selected in the honorary NSW All School Athletics Team for 2020.

In other Sports news, Secondary have been busy making their sport choices for Term 1, eager to attend Surfing, Ice Skating, Genesis Fitness, Ocean Bath Swimming, Volleyball and College Sport. These sports will begin next week, Wednesday 10 February.
