Reading Buddies

Today the OC participated in their first session of Reading Buddies with students from 1/2E. Reading Buddies is a great program where older students are paired with younger students for one-on-one reading time. The program not only develops reading skills, it also enhances self confidence, academic performance and a love of reading.

Students enjoyed personally selecting books to enjoy with their buddies and will meet again next week.

Rugby Champions!

Congratulations to our boys rugby team who represented our school at this year’s Paul Harragon Cup on Tuesday. The team played gallantly in the 7 a side competition achieving a respectable 2 wins and 2 draws. Special mentions to our OC champions – Callum named for best side step, Liam as super substitute and Noah for best support player. A big thank you also goes to Mr Gillett for organising the event and coaching our boys.

Super rugby boys!
