PASTORAL CARE Condell’s House
INTERHOUSE EVENTS Athletics Condell’s House students achieved some great individual successes. Matt Durant came 3rd in the 100m, 2nd in the 200m and 400m, 1st in the 800m, and was runner-up in the senior competition. John Wells came 1st in the 100m, 200m, 300m, 400m, the 100m hurdles, and long jump. He also placed 2nd in the 800m and the triple jump, and won the individual intermediate championship cup. Sam Idiens won the junior championship, coming 1st in the 3000m (new record 09:38), 1st in the 1500m (new record 04:26), 1st in the 100m, 400m, 800m, and 100m hurdles, 2nd in the 200m and long jump, and 3rd in the triple jump. The rest of the House supported well and gained sufficient points to enable Condell’s to finish 4th overall. Swimming Sports Superb results for Bradley Shearer, who won the 100m and 200m freestyle, and 50m butterfly, which meant he tied for 1st place overall in the intermediate age group, so shares the intermediate swimming champion title. He also set new school records in both the 100m and 200m freestyle. Johnny Lee, Sam Idiens and Santino Felitti-Duter all qualified for individual swimming finals. Overall, Condell’s placed 6th in the competition. House Music Condell’s performed an enthusiastic rendition of “What’s New Pussycat?” for the House Music competition in April. The singing and actions were certainly energetic but lacked the flair to win the show again this year. Fletcher Anderson on bass, Matthew Brett on drums, Michael Taylor on
trombone and John-Paul Lay on keys provided solid backing. The House instrumental was Van McCoy’s “The Hustle”, arranged by Justin Hodges, with Alex Brett on bass, Matthew Brett on drums, Rory Doull on guitar, Josh Jolly on keys, Justin Hodges on violin, Michael Taylor on trombone and John-Paul Lay on flute. Our small group – Matt Durant, Justin Hodges, Alex Speight, Matthew Brett and Alex Brett – sang “Caravan of Love” by the Housemartins. Both of these were performed well. Cross Country This annual event was held at Hagley Park, with great participation from the House and enthusiastic support from spectators. John Wells was 6th in the U16 race, Sam Idiens came 1st and Tom Harrison 6th in the U15 event, and Nate Ovendale placed 2nd in the U14s. House Plays Condell’s won 1st prize for their performance of This is a Test by Stephen Gregg at the Reaction House Plays Festival this year, and Tom Vincent earned the Best Director award for his dedication and skill in coordinating the play. Inspiring performances and leadership were also demonstrated by Best Actor recipient Jamie Yee, and Fletcher Anderson. The play was amusing and engaging, and it was great to see so many students from different year groups keen to be involved. Hopefully some who came to watch will be keen to give it a go next year. Well done to Tom Tothill, Sam Whitaker, Sam Idiens, Johnny Lee, Josh Jolly, Alex Brett, Alex Speight, Spencer Smith, Rocco Barker, Santino Felitti-Duter, Matt Durant and Alan Viles, plus tech crew Sam Cross, Elliott Grey and Sean Jang.
Housemaster: Alex Robertson, Tony O’Connor Assistant Housemasters: Nicole Billante, Darryn George, Kirsty Howatson, Samantha Squire, Jennifer Wong, Teryl Yogeeswaran Head of House: Tom Vincent Deputy Head of House: Tyus Dimbleby It was a year of change for the House, with Tony O’Connor leaving at the end of Term 1, after five years as Housemaster, to coach the New Zealand men’s eight rowing squad. Head of House Tom Vincent and his deputy Tyus Dimbleby continued the tradition of a positive House spirit. Tom led the way to success in many House activities and was a positive role model for the younger students whilst demonstrating the value he places on the House system. This optimistic spirit ensured a great year for the boys in Condell’s House and inspired a determination to achieve well in support of the House. Many students were keen to step up and help organise teams, participate or galvanise support from those spectating at House events. Condell’s made it through to a fair few finals, and the Year 10 and 12 students, in particular, stood out for their enthusiastic participation in House events. The House finished 2nd equal with Julius House in the House competition, just behind Somes.
