Next Monday our girls' and boys' teams will play in the QLD AFL Gala Day
at Coorparoo AFL fields. The teams have been training very well with the boys' team
fortunate enough to have the expertise of Greg Davis as their coach. We are very excited
for this day to show our training tips and practices, and our talent. The boys will be playing
teams of players in years 5 and 6 but will definitely play with passion and pride. Our girls
have been training and developing their strategies and skills for the game.The game draw is not yet out so I am unable to pass on the game times. If we receive
them in the next day or two, I will attempt to let all parents know the times if you are able
to come and support the teams.
Players need to be at school at 7.40am for a 7.50am bus departure. This will have us at the
fields quite early but is necessary to accommodate bus availability during peak school travel
time. Players will return to school by 3.00pm. Players all know their playing kit of school
representative singlet and lycra shorts / football shorts, school sports shorts/, playing boots
or runners and most importantly, a MOUTHGUARD. Players all need to bring a very
nutritious lunch and morning tea and not rely on the canteen.
We are moving onto our athletics unit this week in preparation for our Athletics carnival in
Term 3, on August 3rd at Villanova Playing fields. All students will be involved in this
carnival.All students have been running an endurance run at the beginning of most lessons. This will
be a good preparation for our students for the athletics.This running fitness could be of use in the holidays for Qld's own Gold Coast running
festival, held on the weekend of July 3 and 4 starting at Southport. There are a number of
distances available to all runners from 2.5 km to the 42.2 marathon. Entries close this
Friday June 4. This is always a fantastic weekend for many runners and families.
