School captains Chloe Lawler and Callum Trethowan acknowledged and thanked their predecessors in their speech to the student body when they stated, ‘As the upcoming year approaches, we have the hard task of continuing the legacy left before us… but we also want to create our own legacy. We will do this through realistic goals and hard work, however we acknowledge we will be in Year 12 and face some strenuous times’.

Competition has been fierce recently at lunchtime in the library as our Rubik’s Cube champions have been battling it out for supremacy.
