A combined team of ten students from Christian College Junior, Middle and Bellarine campuses, won both the overall Champion Team and the Highest Individual Score in the Equestrian Victoria Interschool State Championships at Werribee Park.
Each of the children took part in a variety of classes over different disciplines, including dressage, showjumping, games, show riding and the interschool challenge, to gain points towards achieving their goal of the highest overall aggregate score.
Each student competed against others from schools all over Victoria in groups according to their age. The exciting thing about this team was that the eldest member of this group was in Year 8, with the youngest member being only in Year Two. The three children with the highest individual scores are then added together to give the final team score. The Christian College three top scores belonged to Ava Halloran a Year 4 student from Junior School, Tori Fair a Year 5 student, and the youngest member of the team, her sister Year 2 student Tilley Fair both from the Bellarine Campus. These scores when added together were high enough to secure them as the overall champion team of the competition.
The overall highest scoring student over the three hundred and thirty competitors was also a Christian College student. Year 4 Bellarine student, Edwina Lumsden produced an impressive score of 39 out of a possible 40 to be awarded the Nan McArthur Memorial trophy for the highest individual score. Edwina, riding Ensenada Prince Harry was a member of the Christian College Senior composite team.
