                                  against Macarthur Anglican School at the College. Two debates were
                                  held. The topic was ‘That Australia and New Zealand Should Be One                      Secondary Athletics Carnival Update               2

                                  affirmative and they tried very hard to assure the audience that this was              Debutante Ball                                    3

Secondary Athletics Carnival
    After a number of lunchtime catch-up events we have finally been able to finish the Secondary School Athletics Carnival. Wet weather,
    exams and excursions all played their part in delaying the final point score tally. With the NASSA Carnival now having been held and
    the AICES Carnival next week these are the final House and Age Champion point scores.

    The winning House for the 2006 Athletics Secondary Carnival was Darlington.

    The Secondary School Age Champions for 2006 are:

The above was a headline in a recent local newspaper and
refers to ex-student Emma Eagles (Year 12/2004). Emma
who is a Nursing student has continued on with her chosen
sport of shooting. Recently she won a bronze medal in the

Shooting Federation’s World Shooting Championships held
in Zagreb, Croatia. It would seem an Olympic berth might
not be out of reach for Emma, who won Australia’s only
medal at the Championships. Congratulations Emma on                                                 Early Childhood Campus
