It has been good to see so many students engage in sporting competitions already this term.


The basketball season recommenced last Friday evening for our nine junior and intermediate teams. It was a tough round for our teams with a number of close losses. Well done to the Junior D Boys who were able to come away with a win on the night.

There is only three weeks left in the regular season so good luck to all teams in these final weeks.


The Year 7-10 SCISSA Soccer competition commenced last week with the College represented by a Junior Boys and Girls team. In last week’s games, the Junior A Boys went down in a narrow 1-0 loss to Immanuel Lutheran College with Connor Ransome named MVP for the team. The Junior A Girls played Suncoast Christian College, who proved too good on the night, winning the game 7-0. Amber Hetherington and Ayanna Nath played strongly for the team.

This week both teams played at home in wet conditions with heavy rain falling. Unfortunately, both teams were unable to come away with wins but thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to play in the rain, as you can see from the photos.

Rugby 7s

The secondary SCISSA Rugby 7s competition kicked off on Wednesday night with more than 80 Pacific boys and girls playing. With such strong interest, especially from girls in Years 8 and 9, we were able to enter eight teams in the competition, which is fantastic.

This week, all Under 13 teams had a bye round with the Under 15 and 18 boys playing at Maroochydore Rugby Union fields and the Under 15 and 18 girls at Matthew Flinders Anglican College.

Results from the night were as follow:

  • Under 15 B Girls – Drew 5-5 against NCC, lost to SCGS 25-5 and lost to St Andrew’s 45-5
  • Under 15 A Girls – Drew 5-5 against GCC, won against NCC 20-0
  • Under 15 A Boys – Drew 14-14 against MFAC, lost against St Andrew’s 26-7, won 26-7 against GCC
  • Under 15 B Boys – Won against GCC 24-12, lost to SCGS and lost to NCC
  • Under 18 Boys – Won against St Andrew’s 17-12, lost to MFAC 33-5 and lost to GSLC 29-12

Water Polo

The Sunshine Coast Schools Water Polo Competition also recommenced on Monday evening with our Junior Girls and Intermediate Boys and Girls playing.

The Junior A Girls went down 18-4 to a very strong Immanuel Lutheran College team with Macey Winter playing strongly up front and Brooke Williams in the goals. The Intermediate Girls lost 17-4 in their first game on the night against Matthew Flinders Anglican College and won their second game 10-4 against Siena Catholic College. The Intermediate A Boys went down to St Andrew’s Anglican College 10 -3 with Jack Carmichael named MVP for the team.
