Winter tournament week is well underway with a number of school teams representing you across the country. The Netball A team, the First XI Hockey and the First XI football all achieved a win, a draw, and a loss in their pool games and now move into post-section play. We wish them well for their upcoming games!
As part of the Year 10 Economics course, students form groups and set up a small business to develop and market a product to see if they can make a profit. Market Day is an opportunity for them to sell their products to other students in the school. A wide range of goods were available this year. After a small tax is deducted for a charitable donation, the girls divide the profit up amongst the shareholders of the company.
Many of you have noticed the First XI Football team wearing their awesome new uniforms; courtesy of Adidas. The second part of their prize was a training session with three Phoenix players this afternoon. Jeremy Brockie, Louis Fenton and Alex Rodriguez Gorrin ran a fun skills session with the team. If you haven't checked out their winning video, click the picture above!
