VSC House Swimming Carnival

On Wednesday 10 February, all VSC students travelled to Monash Aquatic Centre for the annual House Swimming Carnival.
The challenge was on could Hotham or Stirling finally take the House Shield away from the champions of the last 6 years, Macedon?
The day started out beautifully for Stirling, out in the lead during the freestyle events, but unfortunately they dropped away slowly from the front runners, Macedon and Hotham. It was a tight race all the way to the end coming down to the results of the relays.

HOTHAM WINS!

Congratulations to all students and staff in Hotham House - 2016 House Swimming Champions!

House Cup Points:

Hotham - 891       Macedon - 838       Stirling - 601

VSC House Athletics Carnival

On Friday 10 March, all students and teachers travelled to East Burwood Reserve for our annual House Athletics Carnival! We were extremely lucky with the weather, a beautiful sunny day!

The participation rate this year was sensational with many of our junior field events with over forty students! All students who participated this year are to be commended on this super effort.

As far as the House Cup was concerned the lead shifted numerous times throughout the day, with Hotham, Macedon and Stirling all within around 15 points of each other coming into the relays. With Macedon having a point to prove, they managed to overcome the other houses with their huge participation rates in the relays and the 1500m events to win the day!

MACEDON ARE THE 2016 ATHLETICS CHAMPIONS!

House Cup Points:

Hotham - 1332       Macedon - 1419       Stirling - 1360

VSC Cross Country Competition

On Thursday 21 April, around 200 VSC students travelled to Bellbird Dell over the course of the day to compete in the Cross Country Competition. Students ran either a 3km or 5km course (dependant on age group) through Bellbird Dell to gain a place in the VSC Cross Country Team.  The lead shifted many times throughout the day, but Macedon had the numbers in the final event of the day to take out the competition.

MACEDON IS VICTORIOUS!

House Cup Points:

Hotham - 106       Macedon - 147       Stirling - 125
