Competitive Basketball Comes to an End for 2023

The teams battled hard throughout Term 2 and the beginning of Term 3 and by the end of the season, all teams managed to win a game. The competition ended quickly due to the Royal Adelaide Show needing use of the venue, however, we have instilled the expertise of Kelly Sports to help to run training sessions for the remainder of the term to help to develop skills for next year. The girls have been having fun and learning a lot!

Saturday Lacrosse – Done and Dusted for another season

A very dedicated team of 11 SAC students (and their parents) were out at lacrosse at 7:45am on Saturday mornings ready to warm up to play throughout Terms 2 and 3. From all accounts, the girls always played their best and never gave up, winning one game this season. It is a tough competition, with some club teams as opposition. The most important thing is that the team improved every week. A huge thank you to old scholar Eleanor Kearsley who was so well organised taking the team for both training sessions and games all season, the girls loved their experience, and I am sure will be back again next year. Also, a big thank you to Gab Cronin who was out at most lacrosse games as the supervising teacher. This school team is connected to the Eagles Lacrosse Club and the girls will be invited to the presentation in the near future.

Netball – Two more games to go

There are two more games of the 2023 season. Teams have trained hard and tried to implement what they have learned into game situations. Coaches have tried to work on one thing each week with their teams and all teams have had not only success on the score board, but success in their development. I hope that all players have enjoyed their season and will be back again next year.

Come ‘n’ Try

The Receptions have been enjoying their Gymnastics experienced facilitated by Kate from AEROKids Gymnastics, Year 1s have been practicing their tennis skills with Marcus from Head Start Sport and the Year 2s have been introduced to lacrosse by Eleanor (our primary coach from the Eagles) in readiness for next year. Come ‘n’ Try is a big thing for the Receptions – Year 2s to be involved in after a full day of school, but they are trying their best to concentrate and learn as much as possible.

SAPSASA Athletics

On Friday 1 September, 19 Year 4-6 students travelled to Bridgestone Arena to compete against other schools in the East Adelaide SAPSASA District day. We had some excellent results throughout the day. Special mentions to the following students:

I was also so impressed that we had Airley Fiorita and Mila Zunic make the 11 year old 100m final, Sidney Fahey and Pearl Bament-Sitkowski both made the 12 year old 100m final, Airley Fiorita and Emma Hudson both made the 11 year old 200m final and Pearl Bament-Sitkowski made the 12 year old 200m final.

Our 4 x 100m relay teams also did an amazing job! The 10 year old team (Brielle Forby, Lenni Bament-Sitkowski, Senudi Senaratna and Edytka Taneja) came 3rd, the 11 year old team (Airley Fiorita, Mila Zunic, Emma Hudson and Chloe Battilana) came 2nd and our 12 year old team (Pearl Bament-Sitkowski, Sidney Fahey, Matilda Hassam and Maia Burden) came away with 1st! It was a proud Primary Sport Coordinator moment. Not only did the girls perform so well throughout the day, the way they supported each other in all of their events was so lovely to see.

Congratulations to Maia Burden, Sidney Fahey and Mila Zunic who have been selected to represent the East Adelaide district to compete at the SAPSASA Athletics day later in the term.
