2017 MCDONALD HOUSE REPORT (2nd Place)
House Leaders: Nadija Rowley & Conor Donovan
For inter-House sports competitions, both House Leaders, Nadija and Conor, took responsibility for assembling teams in each year level to represent McDonald in the battle for the House Cup. They both also competed in individual events in the hope of encouraging others to follow suit and thus win a significant number of points.
Nadija says “It was great to see such a large number of students participating in events, even when they thought their skill level wasn’t at a high enough standard to compete.” No matter what the background of the student, whether it was sporting or non-sporting, McDonald House students were always willing to give it a go and do it to the best of their ability.
Conor also kept his focus on the participation of as many students as possible in all events. He says that his time as a House Leader taught him to always lead by example, with a positive mind-set, and let the talking take place on the field.
Congratulations to all the students and teachers in the McDonald House; your efforts did not go unnoticed.
