Year 8 & 9 CAS Cricket

Below are photos taken at the first home game for this season against Irene McCormack CC. Yesterday’s win by ‘The Saints’ takes us to 2 wins for the season, with our only loss in game one against a strong outfit from Prendiville CC.

The boys have been training at lunchtimes under the watchful eyes of year 12 coaches Paul Forgan (TIM) and Matthew Chadwick, (CAR). Their mentorship and organisation has been outstanding. Our umpires have been amazing as well, with Ben Ryan (year 10 ALE), Thomas Chamoun, (Year 10 CAR), and Oliver Dijkstra, (Year 10 TIM), all officiating with professionalism and care.

In Wednesday’s game, St Stephen’s finished on 3/102, with Mason Neale, (C), Harvey Kemp, (year 9 TIM) , (year 9 TIM), carrying their bats after retiring on over 30 runs. IMCC finished the day on 5/95.

There is a great spirit amongst the team in which our focus has been fairness, participation and respect for the opposition.

Battle Royal

Ms Ntoumenopoulos lead her Year 10 class into battle today, a Battle of the Sexes and we are not talking Billie Jean King versus Bobby Riggs. Oh no, this was fiercer, it was boys against girls.

After a pep talk they hit the basketball courts, followed by a stint on the oval and finally the creme-de-la-creme  hair braiding, Jenga, and a general knowledge quiz back in the classroom.

Jenga has never been played with so much rivalry and tension.

Everyone was a winner!

For with God nothing shall be impossible.” – Luke 1:37

ACC-C Results

At the ACC Athletics C Division we were placed an agonising 2nd Place by 6 points! It was a fantastic achievement and reflected all the hard work and effort by all students. The Highlights were the Junior Boys taking out the 1st Place trophy in their age group whilst the Junior Girls were runners up by 1 point!!We have built solid foundations and a culture to hopefully build upon this success for next year.

Heart of Gold

Year 9 student Zac Grosser raised more than $2300 for the Heart Foundation when he ran the 12km City to Surf last month.

The race was Zac’s first ever long distance race and he did it with his uncle who has had a heart condition.

Zac raised the money as part of his EBA project for Rite Journey.

We salute you Zac!
