Congratulations to Nelson Gray who won bronze at the Australian All Schools Athletics Championships in December.
Nelson's medal was for the Under 18 Men’s Para Shot. He also placed 4th in the Under 18 Men’s Para Discus.
Congratulations to Year 8 student Kitty Smyth and and our Head of Sport Emma Robbins who both won silver medals at the Pacific School Games in Adelaide in December.
Kitty represented Victoria in the Under 15s Touch Football team, for which Miss Robbins was the Manager and Assistant Coach.
Their team competed in the Touch Football Australian Plate and came second. Kitty was also voted 'most improved player'. She trained with the State team for six months following her selection.
Miss Robbins will again coordinate Under 15 squads for boys and girls who want to represent Elwood College in inter-school Touch Football in 2018.
Caitlyn achieved an ATAR of 90.40 and thanked her teachers for their VCE support and nurturing her love of Science.
"I’m hoping to undertake a Bachelor of Science at Monash University. I achieved a higher ATAR than I’d hoped for yet my first preference at Melbourne University required a prerequisite score that I just fell short of. It’s a bit disappointing but I’m sure Monash will be equally as amazing! Without the help of so many of my teachers I doubt I would have gotten the score I did. Alongside their willingness to help with any problem I’d come with, I would attribute my love of Science to their inspirational knowledge and outlook. Most notably Ms Bentley, Miss Pritchard and Mr Barr. Bless their souls."
