Flash Back Friday – Presentation Balls

Our Year 11 Debutantes and partners were resplendent on Tuesday and Thursday’s Presentation Balls. Despite some shaky rehearsals, they danced beautifully to proud parents, families, staff and friends. Our thanks to the Rotary Club of Berwick for providing such a wonderful opportunity.

The earliest photos we have of this lovely tradition are from 1986. Countless Debutantes and partners have accepted the challenge of learning new skills and created wonderful memories for the rest of their lives. Photos reflect over 30 years of involvement by the Rotary Club of Berwick who organise this special event for our students and our association with the City of Casey. Debutants have been presented to dignitaries such as past and present Mayors, Council Members, President of Rotary Clubs and Rotarians. Interestingly, Mr Sjaak Kusters, Rotarian was Master of Ceremonies for this year’s Presentation Ball and is acknowledged in our 2008 Presentation Ball memorabilia.

Sam Prime Takes On The World

Sam Prime (Year 12) recently represented Australia in her first Australian team at the World Junior Cross Country Championships in March.  Sam was selected into the Australian team after she successfully won the Australian Trials in Canberra that took place in January.  Sam was selected as an athlete in the U20 Women’s Age Group along with three other girls.

Sam competed in Poland for the World Junior Cross Country Championships in conditions that were wet, muddy and icy and it even snowed.  When Sam raced it was -2 degrees, much different from here in Australia where we were experiencing autumn weather.

Sam placed 37th out of 90 competitors in the U20 Women’s Age Group and was the second Australian across the finish line at the World Championships. The Australian U20s team were the eighth fastest in the race.

 
CONGRATULATIONS SAM – AN AMAZING EFFORT!!!
