Outstanding performers

Congratulations to Ben Rozen on his outstanding performance at the AICES Rugby Championships last week. As a result, Ben has been selected in the AICES 1sts Rugby team. 

There have also been a number of outstanding performances in sport outside of school:

Maxwell Pozniak (Year 9): recently competed in the Australian National Championships of Hip Hop, in Brisbane. His team placed first in the Mega Crew Division, the most prestigious division of the competition. This team is an open aged dance group, and they have now qualified for the International Championships, which will be held in Phoenix this August. Maxwell started dancing in Year 1, including classes in ballet, contemporary, lyrical, jazz, hip hop and acrobatics. He has competed in Hip Hop competitions for the past 10 years and is currently training over 15 hours a week, so this achievement has been long in the making and well-deserved. 

Eden Levit Year 11: continues to achieve outstanding sporting results and competed in the Surf Lifesaving Nationals at the end of last month, finishing third in her age group in the individual sprint and winning three medals in relays, one of each colour!
