Captains' Corner | College Captain, Tom Robinson
As we near the end of term, I’m sure many of us are looking forward to the break ahead. It’s been a long and enjoyable term right across the board, but the message remains to finish well.
The weekend saw the conclusion of both the rugby and basketball seasons, with both Firsts teams, unfortunately, going down by narrow margins to strong Churchie sides. Nearly 1300 students participated in either rugby or basketball across the term, the most out of any school in the GPS. As the year's final game, it was a strange occasion for myself and my fellow Year 12s, knowing we won’t pull on the red and black for Saturdays to come. The support of the boys in the stands couldn’t be faulted, and overall, Saturday was a great finish to an exciting term of school sport. Having played rugby since Year 5, I know I will cherish the memories I have made on and off the field through the rugby program.
With everyone in exam mode, apart from the Year 9s on immersion, you can sense things are getting tense around the College. As much as the pressure can help with study and performance, I have always found that going into exams with a clear mind has helped make them all the more doable. The all-nighters or last-minute conversations only stress you out more, so I encourage everyone to keep up their routines throughout the exam block. I trust the hard work put in throughout the term will pay off.
Have a great break.
