Term 2/3 Winter Sport

Winter sport begins this weekend! Our badminton, netball, soccer and AFL teams commenced training this week, as well as our dance and fitness groups and it was great to see so many students out. Please ensure that you have read carefully over the weekly overview on SEQTA so that you are aware of your daughter’s venue and game time. We look forward to seeing our girls represent SAC in sport over the winter months, in what is shaping up to be a jam-packed season!

Knockout Sport

Our Year 9/10 knockout touch football team participated in the Round 1 State-wide School Sport competition last Friday. They faced tough opponents in St Peters Girls College, Sacred Heart College and Wilderness College. Whilst they did not progress through to Round 2, the girls showed amazing teamwork, leadership and positivity. Their speed, agility and communication on the field was also particularly impressive, as well as their defensive play. We are very proud of how they represented our college.

Sporting Spotlight

Port Adelaide U15 Next GenerationwHAT AN INCREDIBLE experience FOR Gracie!

Year 10 student, Gracie was recently selected for the Port Adelaide U15 Next Generation Academy which completed it’s 8-week program with a match against the Adelaide Crows NGA side throughout the holidays. She had this to say about her experience in the academy, “Playing in the Port Adelaide U15’s Next Generation Academy was an amazing experience and a great opportunity to be mentored by AFLW coaches. The program covered not only football skill development but also nutrition, mindset, resilience, well-being, and social media training. I really enjoyed playing with my teammates and understanding the game at a higher level.” We are very proud of Gracie and look forward to seeing her continue to flourish in this sport.
