It has been great to see so many girls out there participating in sport this term. When I think back to last year and all the cancellations we had with poor weather, I am grateful we have been able to complete most of our fixtures so far.
Our CaSSSA sport teams are already halfway through the season and we are placed very well in AFL, Tennis, and Indoor Cricket. While the focus is on enjoyment, the girls in these teams will be very excited about the possibility of winning a pennant for their hard efforts. Our Open Volleyball team, while still to record a win, has lost games by the narrowest of margins each week, and our Touch teams are sitting mid-table.
We have also seen our Futsal teams heading out to start their progression towards National Championships. Our U16 and U18 teams will compete tomorrow after remaining unbeaten in the first day of play last week, to gain qualification to the State Championships. Our junior team will be starting its campaign in Term 2, with the North Brisbane Titles in Week 2 of the term.
The Cheersport team is progressing well, performing some great tumbles, flips, and even aerials. We can’t wait to see them polish this up towards competition next term.
We completed our CaSSSA Swimming on 14 March. Our seventh place does not show the determination and talent we have at the College. We have made some changes to how we manage our performance swimming here for 2020, in order to give more clarity on early selection and emphasis towards moving up the leader board. A huge thank you to the students, coaches, and staff who assisted in the preparation of this team.
We turn our attention to Cross Country now. Our own Interhouse carnival is just two weeks away now, on Friday 5 April. There is further information on the carnival in the following pages.
Trimester 2 sport nominations have now opened. Sports are Netball for Years 9-12, Volleyball for Year 8, and both Football and Hockey for all ages. There is a PDF with all the dates and grading information in this on both Moodle and the college app.
This year we also introduced free sport on Monday afternoons in the San Damiano. We have had a steady turnout of nearly 30 girls, with the music blaring and girls just enjoying playing one another in a non-competitive environment. We will be playing court sports next term - dodgeball, benchball - and other fun activities. Check Student Notices for the update next term.
With so much on offer, we can’t wait to support your daughter to be active and stay active this year.
