The 2016 NSW State Interschools Championships took over the Perisher Nordic Centre and Thredbo Alpine Village during the week of 23-29 August.

For Snowy Mountains Grammar School, the results from the week are some of our best ever. Over the duration of the event, we accumulated 17 Team Gold, 14 Team Silver, 7 Team Bronze, 14 Individual Gold, 10 Individual Silver and 8 Individual Bronze medals. To cap off a stellar week, SMGS took out the Secondary Co-Ed Champion School award which is another pleasing reminder of the hard work and determination that all of our athletes take to the sport.

Our Director of Senior School, Sue West, summed up SMGS’ success both on and off the snow at Interschools, saying, “It was a wonderful display of sportsmanship, spectacular results and a real reason to be a Snowy Mountains Grammar School student.”

Interschools also provides opportunities for students to try a variety of snowsport disciplines. SMGS student, Finn Sadler, took advantage of this rare opportunity and came home with a gold medal in the Alpine, Skiercross, Snowboard GS, Boardercross and XC Freestyle events. Of his successful State Interschools campaign, Finn said, “I was really pleased with my results over the week in cross-country, snowboarding and skiing. I was so happy to get up on the podium with my team.”

I am very proud of the students at Snowy Mountains Grammar School. They represented their school in a wonderful fashion. I was particularly impressed with the efforts of our senior students in assisting our younger students throughout the week. It is always pleasing to see these students leading others.

In combination with the spectacular sunny weather and fantastic performances by our athletes, our school’s spirit shone the brightest.  One of our Year 11 students, Tolina Davis, couldn’t have said it better, “The only thing better than the weather was the SMGS spirit”.

I wish to extend a big thank you to NSW Interschools, Thredbo Resort, the parents and all the other schools who made this competition as great as it was. SMGS is all for providing experiences and opportunities for students within our unique environment. I congratulate the team and look forward to Nationals in 10 days’ time.

Thank you,

Tim Bland
