Term 4 Sport

Summer sport kicked off last weekend with two convincing wins for our middle and senior water polo teams. Following this, our volleyball, basketball, tennis and touch football teams competed in their first-round matches of the season across a range of Catholic schools and venues.

It is always so rewarding watching our old scholars come back to support younger students in pursuing their passions for sport, and this term is no different with 10 old scholar coaches and 3 current Year 12 students coaching teams. We are so appreciative of the knowledge, expertise and genuine care that our old scholars provide, and they are a huge part of our sport program.

A reminder that senior (Year 10-12) competitions will wrap up after Week 5, and middle (7-9) will finish after Week 6. We wish all teams the best of luck and look forward to sharing some highlights as the season progresses.

Australian Junior Squash Championships

Year 7 students, Olivia and Nadia, have recently competed in the Australian Junior Squash Championships. They dominated the U13 Girls division, taking home 1st and 2nd in the competition.  They showed their squash skills are improving rapidly and have drawn the attention of National Coaches, and Sponsors. 

Not just local, but global squash players are abuzz with the news that Squash has been included in the Los Angeles 2028 Olympics.  Olivia stated, “squash being an Olympic sport gives me great pride as a squash player, and the drive to succeed”.

Squash Stars Program driven by Squash Australia, is coming to St Aloysius this term.  A class of Year 6 students will trial squash during PE classes.
