House Cross Country




Lake Marma, Thursday May 4, 2017

The House Cross Country was run last week around the picturesque Lake Marma. Students from Years 7 to 12 ran together around the 3km course, the senior boys in the 16-20 year age group ran 5km which included part of the racecourse.

 

All students received allocated points depending on their placings; 20 points for winning their age group, 19 for second, 18 for third, and subsequent points as the placings came in. This was their incentive for achieving the best possible time.

 

The age champions were presented at Secondary School Assembly this week.

Black Ranges Cross Country – Thursday 25th May, 2017

Eight schools in the Black Ranges Division converged on Murtoa last week to compete at this year’s Black Ranges Cross Country. About 205 students combined from Horsham College, St Brigid’s College, Holy Trinity Lutheran School, Stawell Secondary College, Ararat Community College, Marian College and Warracknabeal Secondary College ran the 3 or 5 kilometre course around the picturesque Lake Marma and Rabl Park to qualify for the regionals in Warrnambool on June 5.

The day would not have occurred without the support of all staff, many of which left their work to assist with the event, and others who remained at school to keep other classes running.

Thank you to the Year 9/10 students who assisted on check points and were invaluable in their roles as well. They all completed their long, boring jobs without complaint.

Special thanks to:

  • Gary Bourke, for attending with his PA equipment and announcing for the day;
  • Brian Storey for organising the venue for us;
  • Fiona Kerrins and Mandy Murfett for the food and snacks in the canteen;
  • Jenny Reading for being our First Aid person;
  • Stacey Arnold for her lovely hot drinks.

The week that was – Term 2, Week 6

Tony GoodwinSporting Success – State Finals

Both our Senior Boys and Intermediate Girls Volleyball teams competed at the State Champions last week. The boys made the semi-finals but lost finishing equal 3rd in the state and the girls finished 3rd in the pool games or equal 5th in the state. This was a fantastic effort for the college community sporting program. I am extremely proud of their achievements!

Thursday was a big day in Melbourne for the seven year 9 girls and one year 8 girl, followed by a big day for the one year 10 boy, the 4 year 11 boys and 1 year 12 boy. Successes like this are rare and should be enjoyed by not just the team but the whole college community.

Thank you to Mr Shaun Bray for organising and coaching the teams. His efforts were fantastic across the 2 days along with the support and help from Mrs Kath Garth and Mrs Ros Petering. Continue reading “The week that was – Term 2, Week 6”
