SEMESTER ONE REPORTS
As exams conclude this week, teachers will commence the work of marking the exams and writing
the reports. While much of this work will be completed over the school holidays, final editing of
reports and checking will occur in the first week of term 3. Reports will be sent out on Tuesday 19th
July. This year they will be sent both electronically via our Parent Portal, which means you will be
able to view them immediately, and also hard copy which will be via the post and should arrive at
the nominated address within a few days.
The follow up to the reports will be parent/teacher interviews the following week on Tuesday 26th
July and I encourage all parents to attend.
Cricket Throughout the term GCC have put together both a junior and a senior Cricket team. Both teams have played two games, resulting in 1 win and 1 loss each. The junior team battled it out against St Augustine’s Intermediate A, and B team, in two consecutive matches. While missing out on the gold against the ‘A’ team, they managed to showcase their stamina and determination and collect a win from St Augustine’s ‘B’ team. The senior’s narrowly missed out on the win in their game against St Augustine’s (and are hoping for a re match in Term 3), but scored a convincing win over Peace Lutheran College’s senior team. An excellent effort from our dedicated Cricketers!
Cross Country Three of our students, Aiden, Liam and Ryan, represented the Innisfail District and competed in the Peninsula Cross Country Trials, held in Cairns. All three boys ran competitive times, placing them in the top 10 of their respective age groups. Aiden placed 2nd in the U16’s and gained selection into the Peninsula Cross Country team. Congratulations boys!
Grade of Origin The rivalry of State of Origin is amongst the greatest of all sporting rivalries and game 1 of 2016 didn’t disappoint with a close score line in the favour of the mighty Queenslanders. GCC had its own rivalry played out only hours before in the ‘Grade of Origin’ which saw year 11 and year 12 boys battle it out on the Rugby League field. The year 12 team won 16 points to 10 in a nail bitter. There was a special guest appearance by former Origin player Ty Williams who refereed the game.
