On Friday 5th May 2017, 27 students from Year 7 to Year 11 attended the annual Hills Zone Cross Country Carnival held at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre. The 27 students who attended were in high spirits the entire day as they patiently waited for their race. The grand stand was situated in front of the finish line where all schools were able to view the spectacular finishes as each student sprinted to the finish line in an attempt to overtake the other competitors. We had many girls produce excellent results throughout the day.

Montgrove College placed 3rd in the Percentage Shield. Congratulations to Gemma Doyle (Year 9) who finished 9th in the 14 years 4km race.

Our Harmony Day spectacular did not disappoint. St Patrick made sure that the rain did not come down and we were able to enjoy the amazing stalls and performances of all the different nations. Every item had its own charm and it was great to see some students learning about a new culture by participating in a performance from a different country.

We are fortunate to live in a country that has people from a variety of cultures living side by side in relative peace. The various multicultural events and Harmony Days celebrated throughout the nation foster greater cohesion and a deeper understanding of the cultural heritage of the members of our community. Celebrating our diversity should lead us to appreciate the common aspirations and desires that we all have for love and happiness.

Congratulations and thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of Harmony Day!

On Thursday, the Year 10s had an opportunity to assist Sailability Penrith host a sailing and fishing event with for the elderly at Penrith Lakes. Here is what one of the Year 10s reported on the experience.

Sailability was an interesting and new experience for all of us who attended. None of us have ever learnt to sail before and most had no experience on the water. However, with the couple of hours we had, I guess you could say we practically became experts.

Interacting with all of our passengers was a whole other aspect to the day. We as a group had to step out of our comfort zone to try and create the best experience for the elderly. In the end all the girls had an amazing day and all walked away with something new in mind. I would definitely go back again and would heavily encourage everyone to go too. It is a great learning experience for all ages and a great social interaction activity.
