Term 1 Sport Wrap Up!
It has been an exciting and successful summer for our SAC volleyball, basketball, touch football and water polo teams! Each year, our teams / participants continue to grow, and it is so great to see the dedication and commitment our girls have to their chosen sport. The secondary sport competitions would not run without the support of old scholar and staff coaches, supervising teachers and parents – so thank you for your efforts this term.
Premiership teams will be recognised at the end of year assembly and awarded with a trophy.
Our dance and fitness groups also wrapped up their sessions this week. Here’s what Grace Kennedy (9CW) had to say about her dance experience this term. “I enjoyed dance in term one because Emma our teacher is really fun and comes up with fun combos. Dance has been a great opportunity to learn new skills and help others as well as talking to people I wouldn’t normally talk to.”
Throwback to some great sport memories in Term 1!
Winter Sport is Coming!
Thank you to families who have nominated their daughters for term 2/3 sport. Teams have been entered to SACSSGSA for division/venue allocation and coaches are being assigned.
Team lists, training schedules and info packs will be uploaded to the term 2/3 sport portal by first week of holidays. Draws will likely be released by SACSSGSA in week 1, term 2. Reminder emails will be sent out as this information is released but be sure to frequently check the portal.
If you are a parent or old scholar who is interested in volunteering to coach a winter team, please contact [email protected]. *WWC & Catholic Archdiocese Screening is required*
