College Physical Education Support Assistant, Chantal Greep, was thrilled with the result: “We couldn’t have been happier for all our students, both as a department and as a College as a whole. Our competing students showed a real grit and determination in every discipline with some truly outstanding individual and team performances. Our accompanying Student Leaders once again showed their professionalism and dedication to delivering high level sporting activities to members of local primary schools. They are all, without doubt, fantastic ambassadors for the College and we are thrilled with their performances.”
