QAHS students have been engaged in a variety of school-based and external sporting competitions this term. We have had athletes competing in sporting competitions including swimming, basketball, volleyball, athletics, weight lifting, archery and surf lifesaving – just to name a few! Next Thursday 11 May is the second QA Sport Day for Year 10 and 11 students.
