Our Year 7 netball team continued their winning form with a dominant win over Archbishop Lanfranc. The team worked exceptionally well together and showed excellent sportsmanship, including encouraging and supporting the opposition.


Our Year 8 football team returned to their winning ways last night, with a emphatic 8:2 win over Trinity. The boys dominated from start to finish and even had a little left in the tank at the end! Raffael was MOTM, controlling the game from the middle. Well done!


Our Year 7 and Year 8 netball teams made their debut last night against Orchard Park. Both teams left victorious, showing excellent team working skills and determination. A great start for both teams! Well done.
