New Zealand Sport Tour Sponsorship
In the September holidays, approximately 50 students and staff will head off to the South Island of New Zealand on a Sport Tour. The girls will play 4-5 games of Netball and Touch in two age groups. Currently we are seeking sponsors. If you are interested in sponsoring please contact the Head of Sport, Tony Tregaskis.

Andrews Cup Cross Country
On Thursday 4 May, 59 girls from Fairholme Junior participated in the Andrews Cup Cross Country competition in Ipswich. Thank you to the many parents who supported their daughters at this event, and to Mrs Katie Davidson who assisted with warm-up and preparation of our runners. Thank you also to Miss Courtney Otto and Sarah Tomlinson, the Senior School Cross Country Captain, who were course officials together with Mr Peter Webb. Thank you also to Mrs Erin Tonscheck and three Middle school students, Eve Fenton, Aisling Teahan and Gabrielle Burrows, who assisted with supervision and care of our runners.

Fairholme College finished in 6th position overall, one place better than 2016, and we gained 3rd place in the Percentage Trophy. Congratulations to all the girls for the excellent way in which they conducted themselves throughout the day and for the wonderful spirit in which they participated and enjoyed their run. The results and times for each team member are posted on the Junior School Sports noticeboard.
