The Elwood College Basketball Academy has bounced into action for its inaugural year, with more than 60 students taking the opportunity to enjoy professional coaching on site before and after school.

There is a fantastic energy in the Tuesday and Thursday morning training sessions. Coach Mike Spears has the groups engaged and motivated throughout the 45-minute sessions, working on key skills before enjoying game practice.

More photos of the Swimming Carnival, just to show off these happy faces!

As always, the House colours fashion parade was a highlight of the swimming carnival!

We had a fantastic day at the House Swimming Carnival on Thursday, 19 February. Byron came out the overall winner with 747 points, followed closely by Milton (741), Lawson (695) and Keats (655). Well done to all the students who participated.

Special congratulations to the age group champions:

13yo: Freya Hopkins and Jordie Gray

For the second year running, our superfish teachers proved too fast in the staff vs students relay. Emma Robbins, Virginia Moloney, Sebastian Barr and new science/food tech teacher Tim Purcell made a formidable team, giving next year’s senior swimmers some great incentive to get training!
