It’s only still very early in the year but already so many students at VPSHS are achieving great things in sport. Some students to make mention of include the following:

Luke Harvey (Year 10), Katelin Parkes (Year 9) and Connor Duffey (Year 7) are all ready to put their endurance to the test when they represent Metropolitan East at the upcoming Queensland Secondary Schools State Triathlon Championships. This is a fantastic achievement and the entire school community is cheering for them.

Bocce is a rapidly rising sport across the world and as such is recognised by the Australian Olympic Committee and Australian Sports Commission. Students Carlo Bunin (Year 9) and Marco Bunin (Year 11) have taken to this unique sport and are excelling! This year both boys have already been to a training day in Melbourne after being personally invited by the Bocce Federation of Australia. This preparation will prove valuable, as Carlo and Marco will be participating in the Australian Junior Open (17th to 19th April), representing Queensland in their respective age divisions. If things continue to progress, these boys have their eye on Australian representation in the World Championships in the not too distant future. We congratulate Carlo and Marco on these wonderful achievements and wish them the best of luck!

Year 11 student Jimmy Regan has taken a shine to the ‘distant cousin’ of Bocce, that of course being Bowls, and has been selected in the Queensland Police State Bowls Team.  He will now compete at the Australian Police Bowls Championships in March.  This is an excellent achievement, and experience for Jimmy and one which the school is excited about.

Last but certainly not least, 2014 Sportsman of the Year Mitchell Henning (Year 12) has been selected in the Australian Junior Ice Hockey side to compete at the World Championships. He will be training and competing in the Czech Republic and Serbia in March.  This is an amazing opportunity for Mitchell on an international sporting stage and we wish him many successes, as he follows his dreams.​
