DSC_1331.JPGIt was a proud moment for the Girls’ School when the Relay Team stepped up to the starter’s blocks for the team relay race at this year’s Swimming Sports held at the College. In front of a huge crowd of students, staff and parents, the mixed Year 7 and 8 relay team, comprising Anna Lowther, Chelsea Simmons, Bethan Montgomery, Lucy Frazer, Grace Stehlin and Olivia Montgomery, streaked ahead of the opposition to win by a full length of the pool. Principal, Mrs Hastie and Sports Director, Miss Kristie Richards were beaming from ear to ear as the girls reached the finish line with no other swimmer in close contention.

The strength of the Girls’ School became evident from the start of the afternoon’s racing as they confidently blitzed the pool in many of the individual races. In the overall results with the College and Girls’ School combined, Lucy Frazer and Olivia Montgomery came 2nd and 3rd in Year 7 and for Year 8, Anna Lowther, Chelsea Simmons, Bethan Montgomery were in 1st, 2nd and 3rd position!

Three years ago, Mrs Hastie adopted the phrase, ‘small but mighty’ and the girls have proved once again, that whilst they may be small in number, they can certainly hold their own in a competitive event!
