​Congratulations to the following students on their achievements...

Kaine Baldwin (Year 9 Forder) competed in the week-long U15 National “Schools” AFL Championship carnival in Perth. South Australia made it to the Grand Final however were defeated by a strong Victorian side and subsequently took home a silver medal. At a personal level, Kaine played well enough across the five games of the carnival to be selected in the “All Australian” side. This makes Kaine on of the best 25 footballers in the country under the age of 15.

Olivia Buchanan (Year 8 Dunstan) has been invited to join the Equestrian S.A. Interschool team to represent South Australia at the Interschool National competition in Toowoomba in September. It's an annual National competition for suitably qualified riders. Olivia's family wishes to thank Ms Karen Horsell for all of her help in making this possible for Olivia this year.

Charles Hargrave Student Enterprise Awards

The Charles Hargrave Student Enterprise Awards program started in 2009 and is managed by the Westminster School Foundation. These awards give Westminster students in Years 10 or 11 the opportunity to pursue a passion or personal interest by providing funding for them to undertake a project of their own initiative. Up to $8,000 in grant funding is available each year and may be granted to one or more students. The awards were established thanks to a generous donation by past grandparent and successful business leader, Charles Hargrave. Mr Hargrave, who died in 2013, believed very strongly in giving young people the freedom to explore and develop a wide range of interests in life. Since 2009, these unique Awards have funded many diverse projects including sheep shearing courses, providing advanced musical composition software and developing cricket umpiring skills.
