Nitro Athletics
Canterbury College entered teams in the Intermediate Division (Girls and Boys) of the 2019 Queensland Nitro Schools Challenge which was held on Saturday 21 August at the University of Queensland Athletics Centre. It was a tough competition with some of the best athletics schools in the state competing at this event. Our Canterbury teams competed extremely well with our Boys Intermediate team narrowly missing a medal finishing in 4th place and our Girls Intermediate team finishing in 6th place, only a small number of points from the medal positions.

TAS Trimester 3
Canterbury hosted a successful Round 7 of TAS Sport against West Moreton Anglican College on Saturday 31 August. Boys Basketball had their best round so far winning 6 of the 7 games. The highlight was the comeback from the Seconds where they won from being behind just one point. Boys Football also had wins in Year 7 and Year 10. 

On the Volleyball court, the Girls' team had another fine round. Year 7, Year 7 Navy, Year 9, Year 9 Navy and Year 10 are all in the hunt for a grand final berth as they all aim for Premierships. 

In Touch, there were wins for Year 7, Year 8 , Year 9 and Year 10 teams in what was a very close round of action with most games decided by just one or two tries. 

This weekend we travel to St Paul’s School for the last of the Round games before the finals. Fixture details can be found on the Canterbury App or by clicking below.
