Shearwater's tennis team headed down to the AIS regional carnival in Grafton this week, where 120 students from independent schools across the region (Tweed Heads to Coffs Harbour) enjoyed the perfect conditions and the friendly competition.
It was a big day, with an early start and a long drive either end. The students played an average of five short matches each but their enthusiasm never flagged - losing or winning, they were having lots of fun! They were a joy to watch.
Congratulations to the whole team and a special mention to Dylan, who came in 3rd in the Open Boys, and Class 6 student Oliver Fernley, 2nd in the Primary Boys.
Our next regional sporting event will be the Primary Basketball in Coffs Harbour at the start of November. Our basketball team is putting in lots of time on the court and we wish them luck.
Film and Photography students across the High School are involved in an ambitious project to document the minutiae of WAVE, with a new behind-the-scenes video produced every day. Episode 1 (above) was filmed by Dylan and Tom (Year 8), with audio by Felix (also Year 8), and features an interview by Louka (Year 10) with Year 10 students Molly, Hanini, Daisy and Ellen.
