Both Miss Stavropoulos and myself were extremely impressed by all our speakers who represented the College in the best light. Our sincere congratulations to Eva Nanevski who made it through to the Zone Finals, which was held last Friday, 13 March, at Aquinas Catholic College Menai. Eva represented the College in impeccable style. Due to the high degree of competition, Eva did not make it through to the Grand Finals, however, the competition provided all competitors with new learning experiences, some of whom had only competed for the first time. Well done, girls!
