It a topsy-turvy year The Cathedral School managed to hold onto a range of inter-house events, albeit a little more scattered than in years past. With year levels competing in house competitions on individual days, it was difficult to know who was leading the Annual House Championship.

So it was with a great deal of subdued excitement to find out that BEDE had taken out the 2020 House Championship. Former House Captains Hollie Swanton and Chris Adamson (2002) ‘zoomed’ in their Seniors Choice Award announcement to the Bede Head of House, Mr David Phillips. The Seniors Choice Award is presented to the best all-rounder as voted by their peers.

Congratulations to this years winner, Daisy D’Arcy!

Brooke admits to feeling a mixture of nerves and excitement at the experience. “Mum was there for support, but once I was on the field and started playing, nerves went away,” Brooke said. Brooke ended up being selected for the state team, but plans are on hold due to the current pandemic.

Brooke started playing the sport in HPE whilst in Junior School, and she really enjoyed it. She now plays in under-15s for local team, Wests, in a mid-field position. She trains twice a week unless preparing for a big competition when she trains four to five times a week.
