GISSA Wednesday Afternoon Sport
Our Year 7 and 8 students have the wonderful opportunity to participate in a 6-week round robin against other Geelong Independent schools. The competition is designed to encourage participation in sport and develop social connections against other schools.
The sports the students chose from this term were netball and soccer.
It was great to have so many students involved, not only developing their skills in the sport but also developing their organisational skills to be involved.
Credit also goes to the many staff members that made this competition possible for the students each week.
Clonard was well represented in Equestrian events during Term 2, with some outstanding results.
Congratulations to the following students who competed at the Tintern Grammar Interschools Horse Trials held in May:

Well done girls! Bring on Term 3!
