System Administrator Appreciation Day!
Today is an international celebration of system admins across the globe, official recognition of geekdom and of the time and effort these device-doctors and tech-therapists sacrifice as they work their magic!
The purpose of the day is to acknowledge all people in our schools who support ICT.
Alkimos College would like to recognise our fabulous ICT team - Damon Radburn (Network Administrator) and Glen Wilkinson (Technical Support Officer) for their dedication and support for all of our staff and students! ... See MoreSee Less
Year 7 Lightning Carnival: Basketball
On Wednesday a girls team and 2 boys teams participated in the Basketball Lightning Carnival, held at Warwick Stadium.
Our girls were under the guidance of our coaching maestro (Chaplain Lauren) and competed hard all day, with great team work. They managed to experience all three possible results - a few wins, a few losses and even a draw! They should all be congratulated on their sportsmanship on and off the court.
A big thank you also to Year 8 girls Danni H and Lissy D who umpired and scored all day, great job ladies!
Our boys teams were under the guidance of our legendary PE teacher Mr Haag. Team 1 started the day with a tough loss against Woodvale, but as they played more and more together during the day their offence greatly improved, walking away from the day with some very impressive wins! The boys should be very proud of their efforts.
Team 2 also started the day with a loss, however from that point on they flew through and won the remainder of their pool games very comprehensibly. The Team 2 boys finished top and played off in the Grand Final, which is an amazing effort! Their game was a close one from start to finish, but eventually going down to a very strong Duncraig team by 3 points - but being runners up! Well done!
Another big thank you to Year 8 boys Carter T, Matthew P, Josh B and George L who umpired and scored all day, outstanding job! ... See MoreSee Less
