Recently a group of our Senior students participated in the Volleyball SA Beach Festival at Glenelg Beach. Following our successes at the Beach Festival in November last year, the expectations were quite high for some of our returning players. Our two Year 8 teams gained some great experience on the sand and made some new friends in the process. Our Year 10 and 11 boys' teams all competed in the Open Division, with all three teams making it through to the semi-finals. A Westminster vs Westminster final guaranteed us the silver and gold at the conclusion of the day's events. Congratulations to all players for representing the school so well.
