Fraser claimed their first Cross Country title in many years at the 2017 Carnival. On a day made for Cross Country all of our students ran to the best of their ability for themselves and their houses.

It what was an extremely close contest Fraser only won by only 15 points 186 – 171. Some highlights included our twins Elva and Clive both winning their races and all three Kingsleys taking out theirs.

Swimming Program a Success Once Again

As teachers it is a pleasure to watch the way BJ and Kim interact with and get the best out of each and every student. Every year we are thrilled at the amount of progress the kids make in BJ’s swimming lessons. A big thank you to the Sports Club for use of the bus.
