The Boys team had a great day out with lots of team spirt and comradery. It was a massive effort as they were the only team that had Year 7 players on the day. It was great to see our Year 9 students leading the way and getting the Year 7s involved in game play. It was a hard-fought day on the footy field in which the boys found themselves in the grand final! The game went down to the wire literally, just going down by one goal in the last few minutes. Congratulations to all involved and a big thanks to our senior coaches Malual and Campbell for assisting on the day.

ACT 13 & over Swimming Championships – Friday 6 May
On Friday 6 May five students represented SFX at the ACT 13 & over Swimming Championships.
This year the process to qualify for the ACT carnival was a little different to normal thanks to COVID-19. Students had to nominate the events they wished to compete in and their times would be compared against other students within the ACT. If students’ times met the qualifying time, they were then placed into heats for the ACT Championships.
Well done to the following students for meeting the qualifying times for their respective events:
- Fletcher Bailey
- Lincoln Nicholson
- Charlie Hughes
- Tahlia Rose
- Amber Librando
