Congratulations to Chloe Whiteman (Year 6) who played in the East Adelaide SAPSASA netball team last week.

Independent Primary Schools Swimming Meet 

It was a fantastic start to the Independent Primary Schools Swimming meets for 2019, held at Prince Alfred College on Thursday 13 June, which will involve a further two meets held over the next two College terms. It was especially pleasing to see our students give their best in all their events throughout the day.

We also managed 3rd in the U11 200m Freestyle Relay.

Despite a very young team (some swimmers only 8 years old) and extremely tough competition (most schools have swimming clubs), the children performed beyond expectation to finish 6th overall with 210 points.
