COMMUNITY GATHERS FOR ATHS DAY 2017

Students and families from all four campuses descended on Corio for our Whole School Athletics Day on Sunday 17 September. Rain and wind in the days leading up to Sunday had the School's ground-staff working overtime but, as it always seems to do, a glorious day greeted the School community when the Thanksgiving Service began prior to the events.

Cuthbertson won the Senior School Boys' House title for the fourth year running ahead of Francis Brown, while Clyde maintained their streak of Senior School Girls' titles, narrowly defeating Allen & Fraser. The Middle School House winners were Connewarre (Under 14/15 Girls), Highton (Under 14/15 Boys and Under 12/13 Girls) and Otway (Under 12/13 Boys). 

One School Record fell on the day - Mia Gross (Yr10 Cl) marked her first GGS Athletics Day by breaking the Girls' Under 17 100m record in a time of 11.41 seconds - but a number of individuals produced incredible performances in their respective age groups.
