BOYS ACHIEVEMENTS

Tim O'Donnell (Year 12, Anderson) competed in the National stage of the Lions Youth of the Year Speech and Leadership Competition. Tim spoke on two impromptu topics: "inter-generational welfare is an issue the Australian government is addressing. What are some of the challenges and solutions?" And

"should primary and secondary education be resourced at the expense of tertiary education?"

In his prepared speech Tim spoke on the issue of body image for today¹s teens, specifically through objectifying pictures on Facebook.

As the Western Australian Representative, Tim will be travelling to New Zealand at the end of December to attend the International Lions Youth Conference with the other State Representatives.

Louis Cassell (Year 10, Ferguson) has been selected in the Under 15 WA Ice Hockey Team and also the Under 18 WA Ice Hockey Team.

Andrew Tole (Year 12, Brisbane) and Jonty Bean (Year 12, Cameron) will be competing in the State Finals of the UN Youth Evatt competition representing Scotch at Parliament House.

Sailing Team

The 1st VII finished 2nd overall to CCGS. The boys actually finished top of the table after the round robins and the final 8 but unfortunately lost to CCGS 2 v 1 in the 1st semi, then beat Shenton 2 v 0 in the prelim before losing the final.

The 2nd VII did brilliantly for their 1st time at this regatta, particularly given how young the team was. They actually made the final 8 and finished 7th overall.
