SEASAC Golf - Last weekend our top golfers traveled to KL to compete in the SEASAC Golf tournament. This was a great opportunity for our team to compete at the highest level in school golf. Some consistent golf saw the girls team, led by Kavya, secure 5th place in the team competition. Most golfers found the course challenging and it took a lot of concentration and skill to manage their rounds. Thank you to Coach Nigel Bark and Thomas Fairclough for accompanying the team. Check out the movie below

SEASAC Cross Country - Just in.....Jonathan Robbins won the Boys SEASAC Cross Country race in a time of 19.02:36 for 5KM. In the girls race, Maya Rostoft was placed 9th!
