Last Saturday served as a promising start to the volleyball season, with all teams putting up a gallant fight against our first opponents, Moreton Bay College. There were many highlights and triumphs across all matches, with convincing wins from the Senior B’s and the 7A’s and many teams, like the 7B’s, bringing home set wins. A special mention must of course go to Ofure from 7B, who accidently missed her receive and instead hit the ball with her head, which remarkably broke the opposition’s defense and won her team the point. Overall, a strong start to the Volleyball season, and all teams are training hard for next week’s fixture.

Volleyball Captain – Remi Dittmar

Rowing Season Update

We have had a very jam-packed start to the 2022 rowing season, with Term 2 containing lots of training followed by two rowing camps over the June-July holidays.

During the first camp, Year 8s, 9s and Seniors stayed in the St Hilda’s boarding houses where everyone travelled to Wyaralong Dam to seat race for their spot in the boat, before continuing training out of the TSS sheds. It was great to see the determination and commitment over the couple of days to finish off an intense term.  After a short break, all rowers attended camp 2 at Maroochydore River to prepare for the racing season. Although training was challenging, there was much excitement within the group to get back in the boat and start racing. This was a great opportunity for crews to also build connections within the boat.

We are very excited to see what Term 3 will hold for the racing season, with the first regatta on 23 July being hosted by St Hilda’s. This is a very important regatta for our school as we get to showcase our amazing community within the shed.

Rowing Captains – Emma Chandler and Eliza Mactaggart
