QAHS Sports News Update 3

We are pleased to confirm that pathway allocations for the new QA Sport Program (Year 10/11 students) have been released. Thank you to students, staff, house captains and families for embracing the change in 2023! As expected, the risk taker pathway was very popular amongst the students and a ballot was held to secure one of the 170 places available. As you can imagine, we would love to give everyone their first preference – though safety and venue limitations do not allow this. Students who missed out on their first preference will be kept in a database for 2024, to enable them to have first preference for sport next year. We look forward to commencing our first sport day on Thursday 30 March, 2023. This will be for all Year 10 and 11 students. Year 12 students will be involved in our house competitions, cross country and our first official athletics carnival later in the year.

Year 10 student Lucca Pither is an emerging talent in the sport of Surf Life Saving. In the recent Summer of Surf Shannon Eckstein Classic, Lucca placed 4th in the board race in her age category.
