The CSSA State Carnival was held at the Sydney International Aquatic Centre recently and PCS sent over 25 students to swim on the day. Several students performed very well and swam personal best times in a number of races.

 

Two students, Matthew Galea and Thomas Colbourn, won all of their races and qualified to compete at the NSW Combined Independent Schools Swimming Championships held on Thursday 5 April (and at the evening session of Wednesday 4 April).

  • Matthew Galea (Year 11) – 1st in 17 Year Boys 50m, Freestyle, 50m Breaststroke, 50m Backstroke, 50m Butterfly, 100m Freestyle, 200m Freestyle and 200m Individual Medley.

  • Matthew broke the State Record in the Senior Boys 200m Individual Medley and was named State Age Champion on the day. Well done Matthew.

  • Thomas Colbourn (Year 12) – 1st in 18 Year Boys 50m Freestyle, 50m Backstroke and 50m Breaststroke. Great stuff Tom.

 

All the best to both of these boys at CIS Swimming.

NEW REP UNIFORMS/SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY

 

In 2017, PCS began the process of replacing our various Representative Sport Uniforms. However, it is an expensive process and we are very much in need of some sponsors to contribute to the purchase of these uniforms. I am looking for local businesses (or big corporations) who might be able to assist us.

 

If you are interested, please email me for more informationandrew.hutchinson@pcs.nsw.edu.au. Please let me know ASAP.

 

We also have ordered some more Athletics Singlets for this year. These were ordered by students at the end of 2017, but I have ordered some extras. Once these arrive, I will notify students and make order forms available. These singlets will cost $33 each.

 

OTHER SPORTING HIGHLIGHTS

 

I would like to know of any sporting highlights that occur outside the school so they can be put into the Sports Report. If you have any sporting achievements worth mentioning, please let me know. I would love to include them in my report; and, please don’t hesitate to email me if you have sent through a highlight and it hasn’t been published.

 

Please send details, to andrew.hutchinson@pcs.nsw.edu.au.
