Bosco House and MacKillop House

College Colours Day was a whole College community celebration that was enjoyed by the hundreds of students and staff who attended the Glenorchy Campus on Wednesday 20 September.

The College remembered the traditions of its Houses’ founding orders. Student involvement in College life was acknowledged.

Wonderful musical talent was celebrated in GYC’s Got Talent while House competitions of tug-of-war, footie and basketball were among the array of entertainment available on the day and added to the House points tallies for the prized House Spirit Cup for each Campus.

And, as always, participants were sustained by food and drink stalls.

After a day of collegiality and fun, the Principal, Mr Craig Deayton, announced the House tallies which resulted in the winners being Bosco House for the Hobart Campus and MacKillop House for the Glenorchy Campus.
