Prefect Announcement 

It is my great pleasure to announce the 2023 Prefecture, which will be led by Head Prefect 
Lachlan Tripodi and Deputy Head Prefect Charlie Crafter. I met with all the 2023 Prefects this 
morning and reminded them that leadership is not about a title, not about a badge, not about 
doing things to further promote yourself – true leadership is about the service you give to 
others and the difference that you make. I have every confidence that the 2023 Prefecture will 
be outstanding leaders as we head into the Centenary Year!

Max brings SANFL Cup to Rostrevor

There was great excitement at Rostrevor as AFL Draft prospect Max Michalanney ('21) brought the SANFL Premiership Cup to the College as part of the build up to this Sunday's Grand Final clash between Norwood and North Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.

Footballers of all ages gathered around Max who has had a great year representing South Australia and Norwood in its League and Reserves teams. Joining Max on the field on Sunday will be many Rostrevor graduates including Luke Surman, Ben Jarvis, Matthew Panos, Jacob Kennerley, Josh Richards and Cameron Ball. Other Squad members who have also played League matches this year include Cameron Taheny, Xavier Tranfa and Pierce Seymour. North Adelaide is captained by Rostrevor Old Collegian Alex Spina.

First XI Soccer into State GF 


Congratulations to Rostrevor's First XI that is one step away from clinching the All Schools Cup State Title. After a grueling 100 minutes with no score from either team, it came down to a tense penalty shootout between Rostrevor and Henley HS at Tuesday's semi-final. In a match-defining moment (and with the teams at 7 goals apiece), goalkeeper Ryan Borzillo saved Henley's 8th penalty shot and then stepped up and scored the winning goal delivering an 8-7 win to Rostrevor and a berth in the grand final against CBC.

Adelaide Premier League Cricket 


Congratulations talented cricketers Dom Zappia, Jake Polkinghorne, Sidney McDonald, William Fanning, Nicholas Furst, Archah Parisi, Jack Haddad and Alecs Zorzi (not pictured) who have been selected by various clubs to play in the exciting, new Adelaide Premier League competition. 

History & Geography High Distinctions 

Congratulations to Luca Ruotolo, Xavier Clark, Finn McNamara, Connor Bohlin, Cooper Swain and Jackson Burman on their Distinctions and High Distinctions in the National Geography and National History Competitions that are undertaken by thousands of students across Australia every year. Max Gouletsas and Alex Minicozzi are also to be commended.
