Secondary District Athletics Day

We are very proud of the amazing efforts by our GCC athletes that competed at this year’s district athletics carnival. Participants managed to elevate our school to record our best overall result to date. A special mention goes to Bakani Kombani and Joshua Pederson, both these boys won the district age championship for their age group.
