HAVING opened its doors just last year, Fremantle College is batting well above its average in the sporting arena.

The school has already enjoyed a slew of sporting success in 2019 as Year 8 students took out Lightning Carnival football, soccer, netball and basketball competitions, the Year 10s doing the same in netball and soccer and their swimmers finishing on top in the Interschool Swimming Carnival Division D meet.

There has also been a number of individual successes with Jethro Carriage (Year 9) selected to represent WA at the 2019 Australian Offroad Championships, Elise Cleminson (Year 9) to represent Australia at the Futsal International Tour and Tye Kazmierowski (Year 10) and Shakayla Ugle (Year 12) chosen for WA’s 18s baseball and 17s netball teams respectively.

Fremantle College principal Myles Draper said their achievements had been “very impressive”.

“We have had many students participate in our Lightning Carnival sports who don’t play the sport at a club level, competing against students from different schools who do,” he said.

“Our students enjoy sporting activities and always compete and represent our college with pride.

“A major benefit of our students participating in sports is it improves confidence, self esteem and mental alertness, which in turn helps with their academic ambitions.”

Tye said he had enjoyed representing his state in the sport he loved playing.

“The tournament was awesome, I played with a great bunch of guys,” he said.

“The competition over there was tough, each sate had their best guys on the field every day there to compete.
