Winter Interschool Sports

Earlier this term, our Year 5 and 6 students competed in the Rowville District Winter Sport round robin competitions over two weeks. Students competed in the sports of AFL, Netball, Soccer, Tee-ball, and Lawn bowls. We were proud of their effort, behaviour, and teamwork across all teams. I would particularly like to acknowledge and congratulate our soccer teams, with the girls’ team only losing one match from their eight games, to finish 3rd overall. While the boys’ team had some thrilling games and made it all the way through to the 1st place playoff. Facing the previously undefeated Waverley Christian College, our boys team delivered under pressure to come out victorious 2-1 in the final to claim the title. We look forward to hearing about their progress to the divisional stage. We would like to thank the many parents who assisted with umpiring and scoring for the numerous teams across the two days off play! Next term, the students will be competing in the summer sports of Cricket, Handball, Softball, Tennis, and Volleyball. If any parents are available and willing to assist with these sports on Friday 23rd August and Friday 6th September, can you please email me:

Year 3 & 4 Hoop Time:

Last week almost 60 Year 3 and 4 students caught a bus to Nunawading Basketball Stadium to participate in a Hoop Time event. For many, this was their first basketball tournament and experience outside of school and P.E lessons. They had a great time and learnt so much on the day. With seven teams entered, we couldn’t have been able to give so many students this opportunity without the support of our classroom teachers in Mrs Lightfoot, Mrs Ascenzo, and Mrs Baum; as well as education support aide Mrs McNamara. And an even bigger thank you to the parents who helped coach and score on the day for all of the other teams – Brooke, Josh, Candice, Kathryn, Emma, Kerrie, and Melanie. It was also wonderful to see so many extra family members not mentioned, also there at the Stadium to support the kids.


Recently our Prep to Year 4 students completed their one week intensive swimming lessons and water safety program at Knox Leisureworks. It was an exciting, but exhausting time for everyone, well done to all of the students and teachers who were involved! We know that water safety is a huge and important issue in Australia. The Year 5 & 6 students have their beach safety program to look forward to in term 4 this year.

Division Cross Country

Lastly, I would like to congratulate Owen H for making it through to the Divisional Cross Country event recently where he placed a very impressive 15th (just short of the top 12 who progress to the regional stage). Well done Owen for all of the training and preparation he was doing outside of school for the event. Unfortunately, an injury prevented Levi M from also attending and competing.
