First Independent District Carnival for the Year
GCC students participated in the first Independent District Carnival for the year. GCC has now crossed over to the association of the Independent District rather than previously being affiliated within the Glasshouse District. The District Swimming Team swam hard and fast against tough competition from other students from schools such as Sunshine Coast Grammar School, St Andrews and Matthew Flinders Anglican College just to name a few of the colleges. The Independent District Carnival was held at Sunshine Coast Grammar.
