Cross Country – 4 September

Our cross country carnival is quickly approaching.  No doubt students are well into their training and preparations.  Students will be running the following distances; Year 3 – 1.5km, Year 4 – 1.8km, Year 5 – 2km and Year – 6 2.2km.  

The course at Manning Park will be clearly marked with cones and signs on the day.  Each school will also provide a course marshal to keep students safe and on track.  More information can be found here.

League Tag Results

On 7 August we had our League Tag carnival at Santich Park.  The weather was perfect and the students provided us with plenty of entertainment.  This year we trialled a new format with boys and girls playing together in quick round robin games, ending with finals.

Congratulations to Christ the King who defeated Mater Christi (2/1) in the A division final and to Star of the Sea who also defeated Mater Christi (2/1) in the B division final.  Well done to both Mater Christi teams for making it through to the grand final in both divisions. A summary of all results can be found here.

Thank you NRL for providing umpires and support to our competition and to the South Coogee Junior Football Club for opening their canteen and allowing us to use their facilities.

League Tag coming up.

Our next carnival is around the corner! Our League Tag carnival will be held on Tuesday 7 August at Santich Park, Munster.  7 of our 9 association schools will participate along with Sacred Heart.

NRL have imposed some changes on our format this year which will see boys and girls playing together in either A or B division.  Students will also get the chance to play in finals after the lunch break if their team finishes in the top 4 of each division.  We are looking forward to the new version of our already exciting day.

Full event information, including fixtures, can be found here.

2018 Winter Lightning Carnival Results

Last week we had our Winter Lightning Carnival.  Children participated in football, soccer, netball or soccer at 4 different venues.  It was a big day!  Across the 4 sports, 230 games were played on 29 courts or fields, all umpired by wonderful volunteers.

We were fortunate to have umpires from SEDA at netball and soccer.  Parents and teachers were of great assistance at football and volleyball.  Canteen and club facilities were made available from FREMANTLE NETBALL ASSOCIATION, SOUTH COOGEE JUNIOR FOOTBALL CLUB and  COCKBURN CITY SOCCER CLUB.  We are so grateful for the support of all these groups. Without their help, a carnival of this scale is impossible so we all thank you.

The best part of this particular carnival is it’s inclusive nature.  It does not matter if children are state or club level players or just there to try something new, everyone is welcome.  Below is a list of the top 3 teams in each competition.

Rain will not stop us!

The forecast for our Winter Carnival is not ideal, but we will be going ahead as planned. After all it is the WINTER carnival! Please prepare students with a change of clothes and appropriate wet weather gear.  If a particularly heavy down pour occurs, the event co-ordinators may choose to cancel or shorten a game, delay the start or similar modifications to suit each event.

While we would prefer better weather, cancelling an event of this scale is difficult to reschedule.  Hopefully the rain will be minimal and the kids get to enjoy the day!
