Bethany Hollams and Zeph Harris
Bethany and Zeph were both selected as soloists for the Festival of Choir later in the year. It is a real privilege to have one student let alone two students selected. Over 3000 students sing in the event and we have two performing solos! For Bethany this is the second time she has been selected.
Sophie was one of five junior golfers representing YP at Brett Ogle Cup, held in Port Augusta during the 2018 July school holidays. The three day event involved best off-stick score, two games of match play and a round of match play in the final session. Sophie won all three match plays on the second two days. Fantastic!
Tommy Linke – Tommy placed 3rd in his age group for the State Snow Skiing Championships. He narrowly missed out on the silver and was only beaten by students that are in snow skiing clubs.
