A new look for sport!!!
In 2014 a new exciting program has been designed so that all students are able to experience a variety of different sports and never do the same sport twice. In order to do this, students will paricipate in a paid sport for five weeks in Terms 1 and 3. For the other five weeks each term they will be using a local or school venue. In Terms 2 and 4 the Inter-House Sport Competition will run.
More informaation to come.
GHS has been entered in a number of Sydney West Knockout competitions for 2014. A list of these teams is below.
Registration and trials for these teams will commence early in Term 1 and students should be listening for more information during assembly and the morning announcements in roll call.
