Our College Captains represented us beautifully at the Anzac Day Service hosted by the ELwood RSL on the foreshore. Here are excerpts from their speeches.

Beverley Pinder attended Elwood High in 1968–1971. Beverley is one of Melbourne’s most respected career public relations consultants, a former Miss Universe Australia and is now in her second term as s a Councillor at the City of Melbourne, where she holds the People City portfolio.

Congratulations to Year 7 student Harriet Clapham Fell, who won third place at the Victorian Interschool Equestrian Series in April.

Congratulations to Baseball State Champions Wesley Ka (Year 7) and Millar Kuhl (Year 8). The boys represented the Southern Mariners in the Junior League (U14) Baseball State Championship played in Geelong in March.

Their team was undefeated, winning the State Championship medals.

Wesley and Millar will now represent Victoria in the Junior League National Championship in Adelaide in late May.

Congratulations to our Under 15s Girls Touch Footy Team who have had great success and showed sensational team spirit at two events this year.

In February, with coach and former teacher Emma Robbins, 10 girls played in the Junior Touch Affiliate Cup (pictured top). They played six games and won third place.

Then on 20 March, a team of 12 girls headed to the Eastern Conference of the 2018 Victorian School Championships (pictured bottom). They won all five of their qualifying games, taking them straight to the Grand Final, which they also won. Ironically, this time they were competing against Miss Robbins in the grand final, who was coaching for her new school.

Well done to the following students who represented the College at one or both events. Year 9: Indigo Gaal, Lola-Jean James, Adele Kirkpatrick, Lily Ranieri, Amy Richardson, Maya Simmonds, Kitty Smyth, Amelie Whitfield and Bree Whorlton. Year 8: Brie Bartlett, Renee Warman and Georgia Skewes. Year 7: Maisy Evans.

The team is expecting to be invited to the next stage of the State Championships but is awaiting confirmation.
