Diving into 2017 with the CPSSA Swimming Carnival!

Welcome back to all students, and their families, from the nine member schools who make up the CPSSA.  It’s that exciting time of the year when Phys Ed teachers are madly organising students in to races, pinning ribbons and adding the finishing touches to the programs for their school swimming carnivals.  In only a few short weeks we will all be gathering at Rockingham Aquatic Centre for our first inter-school event.

The spectator program for the CPSSA Swimming Carnival can be found here.  This includes venue information, a program of events as well as details about the carnival itself.  We look forward to seeing some new faces, as well as the return of previous competitors.

Cricket Champs!

Well done to all involved in our final carnival for 2016 – the Inter-school Cricket Carnival. With WACA representatives Corey and Ellie watching on, our students impressed with their big hots, classic catches, thrilling run-outs and brilliant fielding.

Well done also to our fantastic umpires who battled the heat and the sunshine for the entire day – without umpires there would be no carnival!

The four division winners were:

Boys A – Queen of Apostles

Girls A – Yidarra

Boys B – Star of the Sea

Girls B – Queen of Apostles

Aths Champs

Congratulations to Mater Christi for taking out the 2016 Athletics carnival with a dominant display of talent and determination. Our two days of competition were filled with close finishes, huge throws and jumps, and dazzling speed on the track. We enjoyed perfect weather and great support from parents and grandparents who cheered on our students and inspired them to push themselves to their limits. Star of the Sea won the APPS Shield (Average Points Per Students).

Thanks you to the many teachers who supervised, prepared, trained and supported our teams, along with Cockburn Little Athletics Club who ran the canteen on the day. They were very grateful to the many volunteers who gave up some of their time to assist in the club rooms to handle to demand for snacks and drinks.

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.
