A very enjoyable afternoon of sport yesterday. The Gordon’s School first Rugby and Netball teams played our first teams in two very enjoyable matches. After taking an early lead the Gatton rugby team faced a strong come-back from the Gordon’s team and the final score was a 32-15 win for Gordon’s. The Gatton netball team faced stiff opposition from the start from the experienced and efficient Gordon’s team and the end result was a 40-12 win for Gordon’s. Well done to all the players who displayed exceptional skills in both matches.
There was a lot of support for our teams. Pupils and teachers were joined by parents and Old Gattonians and they were fuelled by hot drinks and food from Harrisons. Some of the coffee was provided by an Old Gattonian and all the proceeds from the sales of the food and drink will go towards the Rugby and Netball tours.
Trophies were awarded at the end of the matches, and this year there was a new trophy. An Old Gattonian had donated a ‘man of the match’ trophy for the Gatton team in honour of Bill Jeffrey (past Head of Rank House) and the Rank House scholars from 1969-74.
This event just gets better and better and it is a fantastic opportunity to bring the whole school community together.
