The cutthroat world of competitive cheerleading meets the fierce rivalries of high school politics and romance.
Campbell is cheer-royalty at Truman High School and her senior year should prove the most cheertastic – she’s been named captain of the squad! But, an unexpected redistricting has forced her to spend her final year of high school at the neighboring hard-knock Jackson High School. Despite having the deck stacked against her, Campbell befriends the dance crew girls and, along with their headstrong and hardworking leader, Danielle, manages to form a powerhouse squad for the ultimate competition – the National Championships.
The Year 7 Boys Football team have achieved great success at the Eastern Metropolitan Region Competition.
The boys showed huge enthusiasm and commitment throughout the day, and were rewarded with 3 wins over Brentwood Secondary, Box Hill High and Rowville Secondary, to finish at the top of their pool. Best players for the day were Tyson Best, Rhys Crossley, Byron McDonald, Ky Dight and Conner Smith.
Training will resume after the holidays as the boys prepare for their next challenge, taking on Vermont Secondary in the EMR final.
