The 2019 Victorian Interschools Snowsports Championships were recently held at Mt Buller from Monday 19 to Sunday 25 August. There were 6850 entries from 228 schools this year which is remarkable. Our students were faced with a wide range of weather conditions during the week but that did not stop them proudly representing their school and doing their best. The below students will go on to represent our school at the Australian Snowsports Championships running from Wednesday 4 September to Sunday 8 September 2019.
Vaughan (Year 6) -Silver medal in Multiclass event.
Max (Year 2) – 7th placed out of 242 competitors in Alpine Giant Slalom.
Callum (Year 6) – 14th placed out of 226 competitors in Skier Cross.
Our Div 6 boys Skier Cross Team consisting of Max, James and Jaxon (all in Year 2) got a Team Silver medal.
Our Div 1 boys Snowboard Giant Slalom Team consisting of Zac (Year 12), Jed (Year 11) and Amos (Year 11) gained a team Silver medal.
