SFX Athletics Carnival
The SFX Athletics Carnival on Thursday 26 May 2022 was a great success! With a chilly start to the morning the sun finally came out and everyone defrosted. Thank you to all students and staff who got into the spirit of the day by dressing up in their house themes and colours. Congratulations to all students who participated in track and field events gaining points for their houses. Across the day we had some impressive results with a few students even breaking school records for events in their respective age groups these are outlined below.
A huge thank you to all staff who helped run events on the day, and those who supervised in other areas, the day would not have been a success without you! Congratulations to the Koorilla house captains for another victorious win! Congratulations to all age champions.

Across the course of the day, the boys played four highly competitive games coming up against Lyneham, Kaleen, Belconnen and Canberra High. The boys won one game, drew one and lost two. A massive effort by all, a big thank you to Kendrick who led the team with his experience on the day.
Boys Rugby League
On 16 June, the 7/8 and 9/10 Boys competed in the Clyde Shield and Rauter Shield Rugby League competitions. The 9/10 boys worked hard in defence and had some great attacking plays across the day. They came up against some strong sides with some very close games, the boys winning one out of three games.
Congratulations to the 7/8 Boys who won the Rauter Shield Under 14’s division. The boys had a very strong team that outmatched their opponents. The boys made it through to the grand final defeating Mackillop in a nail-biter winning 8-6. Across the day the boys demonstrated outstanding teamwork, supporting each other in defence and in attacking plays with plenty of offloads. Well done to all on a triumphant effort.

Australian Intermediate Schools Fencing Championships
On the weekend of 18–19 June, the 2022 Australian Intermediate Schools Fencing Championships was hosted here in the ACT by the ACT Fencing Association (ACTFA). We were lucky enough to have an SFX student participate at these championships, Year 10 student Katie Brassnet.
Katie fenced in her first national event, the Girl’s Individual Foil. In the first round, the girls fenced poules (similar to a round-robin) with the boys to determine their ranking for the direct elimination round. They then fenced for places on the podium with Katie receiving the bronze medal. Katie is to be commended for her fencing and the way she conducted herself on the day. The ACT Fencing Association was delighted with the results of the ACT school fencers who competed over the weekend. Congratulations Katie.
Australian Secondary Schools Rugby League Championships
Two Year 9 students, Cooper Braddon and Angus Durbidge, have been selected to represent the ACT and SFX at the under 15s Australian Secondary Schools Rugby League (ASSRL) Championships in Redcliffe QLD.

Angus Durbidge was also recently named in the Rugby league Top 50: The best under-15s in Australia list.
We’re so proud and wish them the best of luck!
