Kerry is one of Australian cricket’s most popular and colourful characters.

Oscars People's Choice Awards Winner announced


Year 7 have created book trailers for the Joeys Oscars competition, where they are asked to produce a trailer based on a book they have read and enjoyed. 

The People’s Choice Awards are where the student community has the opportunity to vote for their favourite book trailer. Interestingly, the winner and runner-up for these awards matched the official judging results, with the most popular trailer being Stormbreaker (Daniel Stucci, Benson Mariner and Charles Hine) and second favourite being Gone (Daniel Lee and Morgan Smith).

All boys are to be congratulated on their fine efforts.
