BEST EVER FOOTBALL SEASON

Our 2014 Football Team produced the best results we have ever had in the School Sport Victoria competition.  The team, comprising students from Grade 6 and 5, won 14 straight games which included a grand final win over St Anne's at the Eastern Metropolitan level. They then advanced to the state quarter finals where they lost in "extra time" to St Mary's Wooroopna in a nail biting game at Wangaratta. Well done team, we are so proud of your talent and fighting spirit.

ALUMNI

We would like to congratulate Amber, who finished Grade 6 in 2010 and has recently been selected to play hockey for the Victorian U21 state team.  She was also part of the U18 Victorian team that won a silver medal at the national championships in April 2015.

We also have a tennis champion in Jasmin who finished here in 2012. Jasmin has, for the second time, earned a place in the School Sport Victoria Tennis Team, playing for the U/19 team at just 14 years of age.  The team once again came second at the Australian Championships which were held in Hobart earlier this year.

Scott Ayton, Class of 1997, is part of an Australian research group that is leading the way into the possible causes of Alzheimer's disease. Dr Ayton is working at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health in Melbourne; his team is responsible for investigating the rate of decline in patients who have high levels of iron in their brain.  Their research has determined that this amount of iron stays the same throughout your life.
