Holiday Sporting Success

Throughout the holiday break a number of our students were out and about representing the College and the wider region at various sporting events.  Here is a brief wrap up of the holiday activities:


Zara Kruger is in her final day of competition today representing Queensland at the National Youth Championships in Coffs Harbour.  The Queensland team have finished at the top of the pool with the final scheduled for today.  We look forward to sharing the final results in next week’s edition.  Best of luck Zara!




Bradley Cook, a member of the Australian Youth Futsal side embarked on the team’s first national representative tour of Chile.   What a tremendous honour for Bradley – well done!  The team travelled via Auckland before touching down in Santiago, then onto the final destination of Talca, where all competition games were held.


Both Samuel Bourke and Briana Groves travelled to Cairns as part of their respective Darling Downs representative teams to contest the Queensland State Hockey Championships.

Briana played in goal with some brilliant defence throughout the pool games.  Her team placed fourth in the overall competition.

The boys were victorious on all fronts taking out the competition and were named as the Queensland state champions. Samuel has also been selected in the Queensland team to play at the National competition in Bendigo during August.   Congratulations Sam and Briana!

Rugby Union

Willem Wiid and Will Gilmore represented Downs Rugby at the QRU Junior State Championships over the holidays in beautiful conditions at Downlands College. Both boys were solid players for the Downs side. Congratulations to Will and Willem on this accolade and wish them well along with the rest of our lads as they participate in the new Downs Super 6 Schools Rugby competition commencing in Week 3 of Term 3.


Rugby League

Ryan Bohm started in the second row for Darling Downs at Carina alongside his Darling Downs team mates to contest the Under 12 Queensland State Championships for schoolboys’ rugby league.  Despite being one of the smaller forwards on the paddock, Ryan played an excellent defensive game throughout the week.  He was named Players’ Player in the final match against Sunshine Coast.  The team finished fifth out of the twelve representative regions.



Jack Kenny joined forces with Faith Lutheran College to take part in the Confraternity Shield which was hosted by Shalom College in Bundaberg over the holidays.  Jack quickly adapted to his new surroundings and team mates to have a great carnival.  Playing in second row in the number 12 jersey, Faith Lutheran College were appreciative to have a well accomplished league player in their forward pack.  Well done Jack!


Jack Perkins (Year 7)


Max Keable (Year 9)

Our resident skiers, Jack Perkins and Max Keable had some great success at Perisher over the holidays at the Northern New South Wales and Queensland Snowsport Championships.  Max received a silver in the moguls and fourth placing in the alpine and ski cross events, while Jack brought home the gold in the mogul and silver in the ski cross and alpine events.  What a fantastic effort boys!
