Year 7 & 8 House Basketball Wrap

The annual Year 7 & 8 House Basketball Championship was always going to be an exciting tournament owing to the year being what it has been. We had healthy numbers across all House teams which allowed all students registered to get an opportunity to represent their House. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms Rebekah Spencer and Mrs Kymberley Naylor for overseeing game-day. A lot of the behind the scenes work was done by our Sport Assistant Max Kos.

2020 GISSA Virtual Cross Country Results

Over a three week period in October/November students were encouraged to post a run in their own time and for their efforts to be matched up against all other Geelong Independent Schools in our region. We received individual results on Friday last week and I would like to congratulate the following students on their success:

Harry Rawson (13 Year Boys – 3km) – 2nd Place

Evie Lewry (13 Year Girls – 3km) – 3rd Place

Lachlan McLean (14 Year Boys – 3km) – 2nd Place

Cameron Donald (Open Boys – 4kms) – 2nd Place

And finally, Nicolas Nadile (Open Boys – 4km). Our 2020 Sport Captain posted an impressive 14:12 in one of his 4km runs earning him the title of 2020 GISSA Open Boys Campion. Congratulations Nicolas and well done to all students who posted a run throughout the competition.
