At Northholm Grammar, we believe the physical and mental challenges of individual and team sports help students learn about themselves and develop real world skills including teamwork, persistence and resilience. The inclusive nature of our sports program promotes a positive attitude towards health and fitness and a love of physical activity for its own sake.
The school offers many opportunities for your child to engage in healthy competition and has enjoyed a long tradition of sporting success. Northholm has been represented at state and national levels in a range of school sports including athletics, cricket, cross country, diving, equestrian, go-karting, football, swimming, taekwondo and triathlon.
In March, the HZSA (Hills Zone Sports Association) Swimming Carnival was held at Sydney Olympic Park Athletics Centre. Our Primary Team achieved excellent results in the pool and we congratulate Lucinda Samyia on her runner up Age Champion and Oliver Liddle who placed second in the 50m Freestyle event for 11 Years Boys at the carnival. We wish both students the very best as they progress to CIS (NSW Combined Independent Schools) competition.
In our Secondary Years Swimming Team, we congratulate Olivia Charlton who broke the 200m Freestyle record. Olivia was part of the winning Open Girls 4x50m Freestyle Relay team with Chelsea Harkins, Lucy Coad and Vanessa Norris which also broke a record. In an amazing team effort, they placed second in the Medley Relay and will swim at both events at the AICES (Association of Independent Co-Educational Schools) competition later in March.
Awarded runner up Age Champions for their age groups was Chelsea Harkins for 18 Years Girls and Sam Shepherd for 14 Years Boys. Alex Tebbet and Archer Vogt were named fourth best swimmers of the meet for their respective age groups. Isabel He placed third as overall best swimmer for her age group and Sophie Hamilton-James placed second in the backstroke. All these students will also progress to the AICES competition.
Reflecting these achievements, Northholm Grammar was awarded Best Performing School for both Primary and Secondary carnivals. A fantastic result for our young up and coming swimmers!
