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!

2018 Lightning Carnival: Soccer, Volleyball, Netball and Football

Our major participation carnival is just around the corner.  On Tuesday 19 June students will be competing at multiple venues in their chosen sports.

Fixtures and carnival information is now available for all 4 sports.  Please be aware that occasionally schools need to make last minute changes which will require fixture amendments.  Links below:

St Bernie’s dominate basketball!

Yesterday we had our annual CPSSA basketball carnival and it was an absolute thriller. Close games, talented players and a noisy stadium filled with cheering – we had it all!

St Bernadette’s won both the girls and boys competition.  You can find a summary of results here.

We are only a few weeks out from our Winter Lightning Carnival.  Children choose to compete in either football, soccer, netball or volleyball.  Schools are busily finalising their teams, fixtures will be finalised and posted ASAP.

2018 Dates

We are back again for another year of interschool sport!  Our first event is still a while away – swimming at Rockingham Aquatic on 10 April at Rockingham Aquatic.  There will be more information available closer to the event.  You can see the proposed dates for all our events here: 2018 Carnival Dates and Venues.

Good luck to all the students and teachers preparing for their own house swimming carnivals.   We look forward to seeing the interschool squads in action at the end of the term!
