Teachers vs Year 12 Student Games!

Last week, our College Captains ran the annual Teachers vs Year 12 Students games! These were held during lunchtime each day with teachers and students competing in different sports! Teachers claimed the first victory with a strong lead in basketball and continued on to win netball and soccer but students clawed back with volleyball, recess table tennis and the final victory of dodgeball, resulting in an overall tie! Students and teachers alike emerged battered but thrilled with the end results! A very entertaining and fun week!
