Under 15s Rugby League 7s triumph

Tuesday, 11th September, 2012

On Monday 27th August, three teams from WCCS ventured to The Crest at Bankstown to compete in the annual CSSA Rugby League 7’s tournament. The Under 13s and Open teams both did well - the Opens won their first three games before bowing out and, after a slow start to the day, the U13s won the Plate Division.

However, it was the Under 15s who turned in the most eye-catching performance. They went through the day undefeated, winning six games on their way to collecting the coveted trophy. An 18-10 win over Lakes Christian College in the final was nerve-wracking for their coach Mr Ross who said, “The boys really organised themselves, showing personal discipline to be up for each game. Jacob G. led from the front as captain and he was well supported by 11 other committed players who showed what great teamwork can achieve. I’m glad I wasn’t out in the middle because some of those tackles, especially from Ben G. and Joshua P., were enormous”!
 
Well done to all of the competitors who played with skill and in good spirit - you represented WCCS with distinction.

                            

 

GATEway Academic Gala Day

Friday, 31st August, 2012

During week four, eight students from Year Seven and Eight represented William Carey Christian School for the first time at the GATEway 8 Academic Gala Day, held at Macarthur Anglican School. The theme for 2012 was ‘Sustainability.’

Competing against 17 teams from all over Sydney, the students participated in a number of academic challenges based around the day’s theme. William Carey performed particularly well in the Visual Arts, Maths and Linguistic challenges, gaining a score of 100% for Linguistics! The creative challenges involved designing and planning a video game and creating an advertisement or movie trailer promoting sustainable living.

William Carey will be sending a Year 7-8 and a Year 9-10 team in 2013. GATEway is a great opportunity for talented students who perform well academically and would like to compete against similar students from other schools. Congratulations to Hope S, Elizabeth R, Neha P, Jessica M, Arad B, Ryan P, William T and Josiah Y on a fantastic effort!

   

HICES Music Festival

Friday, 31st August, 2012

WCCS students have fabulous opportunities to further their skills in areas of interest. As a member of HICES (Heads of Independent Co-educational Schools), three of our high school students, Fynn M., Andrew T. and Lachlan J., joined 350 students from 27 different schools to rehearse and then play at the Sydney Town Hall. The WCCS boys performed in the Concert Band of 60 people. Fynn sums it up, “It was great to be a part of a large musical community made up from many other schools, playing new and challenging pieces. It was exciting to play at such a highly respected musical venue”.
