On Thursday 30 July, Gold Creek School saw their very first snow sports team race in the Alpine event at the ACT/Southern NSW Interschool's Snow Sports Championships. Perisher Valley Ski resort put on a beautiful morning for the 32 Schools competing in the competition. The 5 students representing Gold Creek School from the Primary Site were eager and ready to compete. Athletes gave it their all during their races and represented Gold Creek School with great pride and enthusiasm.
The end of the event saw all athletes achieve their personal best results and a very chuffed Female Div 5 team find out that they in fact exceeded all expectations and came 7th in the competition. Gold Creek School students out-skied students from all other ACT Public Schools. Team managers Brendan Carswell and Antonia Harmer took extensive video footage of the races which will be on display in the front foyer of the school. Mrs Baird, the School Principal is absolutely delighted with the achievements of the students and is looking forward to the team increasing their numbers and developing their skills for next year. A huge congratulations to the whole Snow Sports team and good luck for the Skier X event held Friday 31 July.
