MC Three-peat!

Congratulations to Mater Christi who took out the Cross Country for the third year in a row. In a dominant display that saw them win 5 team categories and 5 individual medals, Mater Christi took top spot ahead of St Bernadette’s and Yidarra.

It was pleasing to see all competitors out in super efforts in this difficult event, some pushing themselves to complete exhaustion. As always we had great support from parents, grandparents and other community members who were there to help cheer on our teams. For a bit of fun our students participated in tug-o-war competitions between races, while runners headed off around the course that took in the lovely scenery at Manning Park.

A League Of Their Own.

Congratulations to Yidarra Catholic Primary School who dominated our league tag carnival last week. Yidarra took home 3 of the 4 shields on offer and as such received an invitation to play in the State Cup in the coming weeks. The other school to claim a shield and also receive an invitation to play in the cup was Mater Christi. For a full list of results please click here.

The level of skill was outstanding from all schools as there were many tries scored on the day, with students demonstrating great evasion and defensive skills, along with a firm grasp of the tactics and strategies of this exciting game.

Gus Marshall from WA Rugby League (WARL) was most impressed with what he saw, and was delighted to personally present the shields and trophies.

A big thank you to Michael Guthrie from Atwell College for coordinating the referees for the carnival. They are students who participate in specialised rugby league classes at Atwell college.
