CGSSSA Netball

On Wednesday 27th July, the Junior and Intermediate Netball teams competed at Cintra Park Concord in the CGSSSA Netball competition. The Intermediate team were up against some tough competition however this did not dampen their spirits and they continued to put their best effort into each of their games. The Junior team were undefeated throughout the day and therefore were successful in making the semi finals. It was a close semi-final against St. Ursula’s and the girls just missed out on making the grand final being defeated by only three goals! Congratulations to all of the girls for their wonderful sportsmanship and participation during the day.



St George Oztag Gala Day

On Monday 1 August, two Junior teams and one Intermediate team competed in the St George Oztag Gala Day at Scarborough Park. It was a fun-filled day with all girls putting their impressive Oztag skills on show. It was wonderful to see great Bethany College spirit as the girls supported one another throughout the day. Congratulations to all girls involved and a special mention goes to the Junior team who took out the trophy beating Sylvania High in a close grand final. Well done!



Year 10 PASS Camp

On Sunday 31st July, 48 Year 9 and 10 PASS students departed school to travel down to Thredbo on the much anticipated PASS Snow Trip. The girls had a fun, challenging and rewarding three days learning how to ski or snowboard. Jasmin Li from 10PA1 has summarised her experience below:

At 10pm on  31 July, 48 PASS students gathered together full of excitement about to leave for the snow trip. After 6 hours on the bus we finally arrived at Thredbo shivering in the rainy -4 degree weather. We were split into our skiing and snowboarding groups attending lessons with friendly instructors and learning the basics. On the first day, most of us fell over millions of times ending the day feeling a bit sore and soaked in the rain. The next two days were very enjoyable with snow falling down from the sky and a nice sunshine. We all continued to learn to either snowboard or ski and had a lot of fun as we improved. Overall, the snow was a fun-filled but exhausting trip for all.
