Middle School News
Year 6 Colour Run Fundraiser
The Year 6 Colour Run Fundraiser was held at the end of last term and was a HUGE success!!!! Our Year 6 class of 2017 ended up raising $2660!!!! Everyone had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the event! A huge thanks to everyone who helped out on the day, especially Kim Lowe for all her time and efforts in organising it all.
The Year 6 students voted earlier in the year on what gift they would give the School, and decided on a media resource section for the library. The idea behind a media resource centre is to have somewhere where all students can go before/during/after school to research/learn/enjoy the internet and digital world. After much consultation they have some very exciting news surrounding how they can make this space a functional and enjoyable asset to the School community. They will be rolling this out over the coming month so watch this space!
Year 7/8 Milo Cricket Gala Day
On Monday the 16th of October the Year 7 & 8 girls high school team participated in the Milo Cricket Gala day. It was held at Loreto Normanhurst, and five schools attended - Loreto Normanhurst, Pymble Ladies College, Mercy Catholic College, Hunters Hill and Wahroonga Adventist.
We played four games, one against Mercy Catholic College, two against Loreto Normanhurst and one against Hunters Hill. All teams were skilled and tough to beat but our team won both games against Loreto, winning two out of four games.
Our team also had the pleasure to meet one of the Sydney Thunders cricket players. She spent time with us and other schools playing a skill game of catching and also a game in batting.
We had a lot of fun, and happy that our team was successful. I think we would all happily participate in the event again and have another chance to take our school team to regionals.
