All Schools Athletic Championships
Congratulations - Corey and Nic Smerdon
Corey (12.1) and Nic (11.6) competed at the Victorian ALl Schools Track and Field Championships on the 29th and 30th October, at Lakeside Stadium, Albert Park.
Corey came Second in the 110m Hurdles with a time of 16.44 and qualified for the 100m final. Unfortunately, due to work commitments Corey was unable to run in the final. Nic came 5th in the Triple Jump with a jump of 11.08m. Brilliant results - congratulations to both Corey and Nic.
Great Community Spirit!
Evergreen Retirement Village in Pakenham recently informed us that one of our students, Rylie Kaim in 11.5, has been calling in to visit the residents every Wednesday - they are absolutely thrilled with this - as are we! We are very proud of Rylie – who, we have also heard, has volunteered to help the retirement village out at their forthcoming Market Day.
