Special Guest at Assembly – Last Friday the College was lucky enough to welcome Charlotte Caslick (pictured above) to our Assembly. Charlotte is an Australian Women’s Rugby 7s player and Olympic Gold medalist from Rio. Following her Assembly presentation, Charlotte attended lunch in the Dining Hall with some of our very keen Rugby 7s players who were able to talk with her about training, games and the Olympic experience. Thank you to College parent Kerry McCarthy, who helped organise Charlotte’s visit. It was a very special experience for our students.
