On Sunday, 5 May, four of our school Pedal Prix teams competed in a six-hour race on the streets of Loxton. Many families travelled up on Saturday and stayed in the local caravan park where we shared dinner and kicked the 2019 season off for the year. We had a great community feel over the entire weekend with over 80 people being involved in our team.
On Sunday the school competed against 119 school and community teams from around Australia on a very technical and bumpy street track. Our three Middle School and one Senior School team represented the College in outstanding fashion finishing in the top eight of their respective categories at the end of the day, an outstanding effort for such an early race in the season! All teams worked together well throughout the day to circulate their trikes around the track at great speeds without too many issues. Unfortunately, Harmony experienced two flat tyres and Concorde broke a chain in the first hour of the race, resulting in significant racing time being lost. However, both of these teams crawled back to finish in excellent position.
A big thank you to all of the parents for their support in many roles over the weekend and to Amy Martin for her teacher support. We would also like to acknowledge our major sponsors for their support this in 2019 - Smart Orthodontics, Bruce Harris Project Management, Dutton’s, MK Cutters, Quality Promo Products, Dr Nozzle and Banana Boys.
Teams are now training and working towards the next six-hour event in Adelaide on Sunday June 16.

Congratulations to our Year 5/6 girls who won the Sturt Metro Crows Cup yesterday! The girls played as a team throughout the day and displayed great sportsmanship, and the team did not lose a match. What a wonderful effort and experience for all the girls. Thank you to all the parents who came and supported the girls throughout the day! As the winning school, the girls have now been given the opportunity to play at half-time at the Round 16 Showdown at Adelaide Oval on Saturday, 6 July and are going to represent the Sturt Zone at the State Finals later in the year. Well done!

Well done to all involved in Concordia's team sailing over the Easter break! Concordia 1 finished the SA Secondary School Team Racing Championships in second place overall and will advance to the national finals in Tasmania in June as a result. An incredible achievement!
