Term 4 Come ‘n’ Try and Clinics

This term Reception students have started their Come ‘n Try Dance sessions and it sounds like they are having a great time. Year 1-4 students have been given the opportunity to be in an AFL Auskick program, while Year 3-6 students are involved in basketball clinics and Year 5/6 students are doing Water Polo clinics. All have started smoothly, and we look forward to seeing all of the skills and knowledge gained.

SACPSSA Athletics

On Friday 3 November, 44 students from Year 3-6 represented St Aloysius in Section 1 of the SACPSSA Athletics Competition. The team did the school proud, not only on the track but also off of the track while supporting their fellow teammates. Please see below for some highlights (by year level and then alphabetical order):

There were also so many fourth places across the board but just too many to mention. The girls should be very proud of their efforts!

Maia Burden (6SD) was named Year 6 Champion Girl with two convincing performances in the 800m and 400m as well as she created a record of 1.45m in the div 1 high jump.

Sidney Fahey (6LA) won the Girl’s Open Pentathlon with a 4th in the long jump, 1st in the 800m, 2nd in the 60m hurdles, 2nd in the 100m and 2nd in the shot put.

Special Achievements

At the end of Term 3, Year 6 student Maia competed for East Adelaide at the School Sport SA SAPSASA Track and Field Championships. She ran in the 12-year-old girls 800m event where she broke the record with a time of 2:19.34. We congratulate Maia and wish her all the best for the 12 and Under Track and Field Nationals that are going to be held later in Term 4 in Launceston, Tasmania.

Yesar 6 student, Sidney, has been selected to represent SA in Basketball in the Under 14 age group. She will travel to Melbourne to compete in the Southern Cross Challenge in January 2024. Good luck Sidney!

Hot Shot Tennis Day!

participation, cooperation and skill development

On Wednesday in Week 2 an enthusiastic group of Year 3 and 4 students attended the annual Hot Shot tennis day at the Millswood Tennis Centre. The students were in teams and had lots of fun playing doubles with different partners against St Dominics and St Thomas. The focus of the day was on participation, cooperation and skill development.  SAC students certainly enjoyed practising their forehands, backhands and volleys in mini games played over the course of the day.
