The ACC Cross Country was held at Bundoora Park on Wednesday September 12th. Under ideal conditions, 56 Parade students competed in the 3K course at Years’ 7 to 9, whilst the boys in Years’ 10 to 12 battled their way through the tough 5K track.

On Thursday August 2nd 13 Parade students headed to the Frankston-Australian Clay Target Club in Carrum Downs to compete in the South East Clay Target Championships. All students performed well with Samuel Russo winning the Junior Division, whilst Year 10 student Oscar Sibillin recorded the highest senior score from the Parade boys with a score of 15 out of 20. As a result of winning the South East Zone Championships, Samuel will now compete in the Victorian State Clay Target Championships which will be held in Echuca on Monday September 3rd. Pictured below are the students who competed in the Championships along with the Junior Division winner, Samuel Russo.


The Year 7 ACC Volleyball competition will occur in Term 4. Trials for the Year 7 teams will take place on a Tuesday and Friday at lunchtime in the Atrium commencing Tuesday August 21st. All students wishing to try out for a Year 7 ACC Volleyball teams are to bring their runners and attend these trials. Please note, that boys who have already made a Year 7 ACC Tennis or Cricket team are unable to play Volleyball as all three sports are played at the same time in Term 4.


To play ACC Sport in Years 8, 9 or 10 in 2019 at the Bundoora campus, students should be in an ACC High Performance class. If your son didn’t play one of the specific sports listed below in 2018, but would like to be considered for that sport in 2019, then he should attend the following trials –
Basketball - College Hall 24 and 26 July after school 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Table Tennis - Atrium 23 and 27 July at lunchtime 12:50pm - 1:20pm
Cricket - Bundoora College Cricket Nets 30 July and 2 August after school 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Hockey - Bunjil Park 31 July at lunchtime 12.50pm – 1.20pm
Tennis- Bunjil Park Tennis Courts 31 July and 3 August after school 3.30pm – 4.30pm
These trials are used to assess the students’ abilities and possible selection into an ACC High Performance class in 2019 and are for students currently in Years’ 7, 8 and 9 who didn’t make a specific ACC team in 2018. Students are asked to wear their sports uniform for the trials. Please note - Students who have played a specific ACC sport in 2018 are not required to attend the trials for that specific sport, as their performance throughout the ACC season is used to assess their possible selection into an ACC High Performance class for 2019. However, if for example, a student played football in 2018, but didn’t make the basketball team, and would like to be considered for the basketball team in 2019, then they must attend the basketball trials in July and August.


The ACC Cross Country will be held on Wednesday September 12th at Bundoora Park. Training for the Parade team is being held each Tuesday and Thursday morning commencing at 7.30am on Bunjil Park. Students can enter Bunjil Park either through College Hall or the side gates to Bunjil Park.


The ACC Athletic Championships were held at the Lakeside Stadium on Wednesday March 28th. After winning the event in 2017, the squad of 50 Parade students had trained consistently throughout Term 1 and approached the Championships with the hope of emulating their previous success.
The effort of the team throughout the day was outstanding with many students recording personal best performances culminating in two ACC records and nine Parade records. In addition to the record breakers, the depth and consistence amongst the team enabled Parade to win all Divisional Trophies – Junior, Intermediate and Senior, which ultimately led to Parade being crowned the ACC Athletic Champions for 2018. Winning the ACC Athletic Championships for the second consecutive year made the achievement slightly more special, as such a feat hadn’t been achieved by a Parade team since 1955 – 1956.
Apart from the outstanding performance of the team, special mention should be made to the following coaches who guided the students throughout training and on the day of the Carnival. Mr. Oscar Kenda, Mr Paul Watson, Mr Ben Turner, Mr Craig Seckold, Mr Gary Warren, Mr Rob Peckham, Mr Gary Honey, Mr Terry Knape, Mr Tom Wilson, Mr Ryan Bowkett and Mr Matt Singleton.

The ACC Cross Country was held at Bundoora Park on Wednesday September 13th. Whilst the rain held off for most of the day, it was true cross country conditions, as the boys made their way through a wet and muddy track. Whilst the College doesn’t possess many genuine cross country runners, the performance from all students could not be faulted. Their endeavour and willingness to support one another was outstanding. Listed below are students who finished in the top twenty in their individual event.
U/13 Jacob Gangi 1st Dante Pezzin 20th
U/14 Bede Collis 12th Adam Crick 13th
U/15 Myer Zealley 19th William Dynes 20th
U/16 William Conlon 5th
U/17 Braedyn Gillard 4th Joshua Mills 14th
Senior Ryan Bowkett 17th
As was the case in 2016, Parade finished 7th in this year’s Championship to once again maintain our position in Division One. Whilst we always look to improve our performance, it is pleasing to see a number of students who are rewarded for their commitment to train and in some cases, represent Parade for the first time.
2017 Cross Country photos will be uploaded shortly.
