Netball Tour - July 2019
Thirty-one netball players enjoyed a fantastic tour to Singapore and Australia at the start of the summer holidays. The tour started in Singapore where we visited the Gardens by the Bay, caught the cable car to Sentosa Island, played against the Singapore U19 and U17 National netball teams in their National Stadium and enjoyed lunch at the prestigious Singapore Cricket Club.
From Singapore, we travelled to Perth, with four teams representing the School in four matches. The major highlight in Perth was the fantastic wildlife where we fed kangaroos and took photos with Koalas, wombats, snakes and various other animals. We also visited Rottnest Island from Perth where we enjoyed the stunning beaches and the adorable Quokkas. From Perth, we travelled to Sydney where we stayed at the Rocks, jet boated in Sydney Harbour, visited the Opera House, Botanical Gardens, Manly, Darling Harbour and climbed the harbour bridge. We also undertook a training session at the Olympic Park; we were blown away by the impressive facilities. From Sydney, we travelled up to Cairns for our last set of matches. We also explored Kuranda in the Rainforest and had an incredible day snorkelling, going on the submarine and glass bottom boat at the Great Barrier Reef.
The teams thoroughly enjoyed their action-packed trip; creating memories to last a lifetime.
The pupils were superb ambassadors for the School and were an absolute pleasure and great fun to take on tour.
