Senior Water Polo Gala
Last Wednesday was the last of our Senior Inter School Water Polo Gala Days. Well done to all our students who participated in each of the tournaments over the past 3 weeks. Almost all of our students were new to the sport, and took on the challenge of learning a new and physically demanding sport. They represented Radford with pride. It was wonderful to see so many of them enjoy their experience, with many students keen to sign up and play water polo.
Belconnen Zone Netball Gala Day
Last Thursday our Junior School students participated in the Belconnen Zone Netball Gala Day. We had two teams compete in the day, providing a wonderful pre-season training for their upcoming season. We had several wins, draws and closely contested matches. Our senior students Ava (Y11) and Jasmine (Y10) did a wonderful job supporting the team as umpires throughout the day. Many thanks to Mrs Robertson and Mrs Gray for coaching the teams.
