In 2016, whole School House Swimming, Athletics and Cross Country Carnivals were reinstated, with a focus on students participating and the promotion of ‘House Spirit’. House Captains were tasked with building on student participation in House events, and the fostering of House Spirit through colour dress up and house chants. Shields are awarded to the House Spirit winners at each Carnival as well as to the Champion Sporting House.
The House Carnivals have been a great success, and are an essential part of positive school culture. The Houses also play lunchtime basketball, soccer, netball and volleyball tournaments throughout the year. The success has also been shared across the Houses, indicating fairness.
2018 was very successful for the Highview College teams. The three school teams all placed Top 3 in their respective sections, a brilliant team effort!
The ‘Outside In’ Junior squad, had several members participating in their first secondary school event. The team achieved high scores across all sections and finished overall in 3RD PLACE.
The ‘ZigaZig Ah’ B2 team were high achievers across the event. They finished 2nd in the race, WON the Design & Construction and were the OVERALL WINNERS of the HPV B2 Division.
The ‘Genzee’ C team, performed well in all categories. They were 2nd in the Display & Presentation, 2nd in the Design & Construction and finished OVERALL RUNNERS UP.
The 2017 Highview College school teams all placed top 3 in their respective sections, a brilliant team effort!
EMOJI GO, the Junior squad finished in Third place.
OFF THE GRID, our B2 team were RUNNERS UP.
AZIZ, our C team finished OVERALL WINNERS. That is back-to-back wins in the C category.
The results were fantastic, however, they are a bonus. The event benefits students in many ways, and it is a privilege to be involved. Congratulations to all riders and pit crew for their efforts, attitude and behaviour across the event. The team spirit and family involvement were excellent and the joy and feel amongst the group were very positive. A big thank you to all staff and parent helpers throughout the entire program and particularly the weekend.
We are extremely appreciative of the community support. The generous support of many organisations provides this wonderful opportunity for our students and families, and would not be possible without the kind contributions.
Highview College’s involvement in the ‘Independent Country Co-Educational Schools’ Sporting Association is a feature of our sporting and extra-curricular programs. Highview competes against seven other independent schools including, Girton Grammar, Bacchus Marsh Grammar, Ballarat Grammar, Gippsland Grammar, Goulburn Valley Grammar, Braemar College and Hamilton Alexandra College. We are fortunate to provide our country students the wonderful opportunities to compete at world class venues including MSAC, Albert Park and Bundoora State Park. As expected, the level of competition is very high, the organisation of events is exceptional, and our students love challenging themselves at these events.
The HC vs MEC Sports Cup has been fantastic for building community spirit and links between the students, staff and the schools. The schools play a Summer Sports Day (tennis, cricket, basketball) and a Winter Sports Day (football, soccer, netball). The students enjoy competing against our neighbor school. The standard of play and sportsmanship between the schools is exceptional.
