Sapsasa Table Tennis State Day

Last Friday, 24 August, three St John’s Campus teams took part in the State Sapsasa Table Tennis finals. Granted direct entry to State Day after a clash of dates with district play-offs (Grandparents' and Special Friends' Day), the task was always going to be a tough one. However, the Year 6 boys’ and girls’ teams (Sam, Marcus, Max, Ethan, Teija, Mariah, Sofia and Matilda), and Year 5 boys’ team (James, Ivan, Tom and Lachlan), acquitted themselves most creditably, being highly competitive in most games. Hats off and congratulations to the Paringa Park boys’ team who were far too strong on the day and to the Tanunda 1 girls’ team who were also most consistent and deserved their first place. Special mention to the Year 5 boys who managed two victories, often against Year 7 opponents and particularly Lachy with five wins for the day. Well done also to Tilly and Sofia with three victories each. Most importantly, all students displayed excellent behaviour and fine sportsmanship and it was a pleasure to manage the three teams on the day. Thank you also to Mrs Marni Savage for her assistance with managing, scoring and photography, together with the significant number of parents who came along to support our teams.

Boys Winter Sport Break Up

As has been tradition for many years, the boys' winter season of Soccer and Basketball wound up on Saturday, 25 August, with a series of internal scratch matches and the much anticipated Senior A v old collegians matches in both sports. I'm not sure we can rely on the scoring so let’s just say it was more about the process than the outcome! As always, the day was a great celebration of involvement in school sport – a fun day that was supplemented by having a lot of girls netball matches at home also, which hasn’t always been the case. Great support of the Breakfast BBQ, run by the Football Outreach Vanuatu boys and parents, saw a profit of nearly $500 that will be used to purchase equipment and/or develop facilities for the youth involved in the AFL Vanuatu programs.

Knockout Basketball

On Thursday, 26 July, the Senior A girls basketball team competed in the annual knockout carnival. The girls travelled to Henley High School to play against Henley and Portside Christian College. Going into the day the team were really well prepared and ready to play thanks to many early morning training sessions. The first game against Henley reflected all the hard work the girls had put in during the preparation for the day. It was very close for the whole game right up until the final few minutes where they ended up narrowly losing by a few points. The team put up an outstanding fight and should be proud of their performance. The second game against Portside proved to be challenging and after a competitive first game, the team couldn’t quite finish off as well as they did earlier and lost. The input from all players in the team ensured that they could perform to the best of their ability. Congratulations to all girls; Sarah S, Emma W, Emma V, Issy H, Erin B, Mekdes C, Hannah P, Ella J, Teagan R, Sarah H and Ali G. A big thank you to all of our coaches for the effort and dedication they put in; Mr Nicola, Laura Hodges and James Adcock.
