Our Inter-school Athletics team competed in two days of track and field events at Santich park against 8 other CPSSA schools this week. Queen of Apostles are were the smallest school participating, but with skill and effort our students placed in many events, eventually finishing 6th overall, and 2nd in the A.P.P.S. (average points per student) shield. This is a tremendous feat, and one our students can be proud of. Queen of Apostles was also well represented by the large number of parent supporters, cheering on our stars over the two days.
Special mention must go to Mary Massoud (yr 4) and Zia Daby (yr 6) who both won gold medals. Well done girls.
Congratulations to Magdlen for taking out both shields in this year’s Faction Athletics Carnival.
Our students competed over two days in a variety of track and field, and novelty events. Both days were the culmination of a whole term’s work in PE, as all classes prepared for the big day to show our families, friends and themselves just what they are capable of. There were many ‘magic moments’ over the two days where students showed outstanding sportsmanship, determination and resilience.
The support from our community was once again outstanding with many parents and grandparents chipping in to help in a variety of ways, and joining in with novelty events and races. Finally, as always, our teachers were exceptional in helping put together this event for the benefit of our students. These carnivals are a tremendous opportunity for students to experience the highs and lows of sport, and then take these life lessons with them as they continue to develop and grow.

Congratulations to Queen of Apostles for their great showing at Tuesday’s Inter-school Cross Country Carnival. Queenies finished 8th overall, but third in the APPS shield – which is based on school enrolments. A great result for the smallest school participating.
This carnival culminates many mornings of lap running in which so many students have been involved in. The turnout each Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning has been overwhelming.
Cross country is such a physically and mentally challenging event. We are proud of our team for pushing themselves across the line and showing resilience when faced with difficulty. Our students will grow from the experience.
Special mention must go to our dominant yr 6 girls team who placed 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 14th out of 45 runners! That is an amazing feat. Sienna Lilly and Ella Anton brought home silver and bronze medals respectively. Kyle Willesen placed 4th in the year 4 boys race.
Thank you to the many parents for helping support our team. The atmosphere in the Queenies camp was fantastic. Thank you to those parents who volunteered as course marshal. And finally thank you to Miss Jacob for looking after our team all day.
Well done to our year 3 – 6 students for their incredible efforts at our Faction Cross Country Carnival last Friday. Thankfully the weather was kind and with a great turnout of parents and grandparents watching, our students pushed themselves to get to the line. We were so proud of our gifted runners and our challenged runners alike, with many individual stories of determination and effort.
We have had an amazing turnout of runners before school leading up to the carnival – 149 runners with a combined total of 6123 laps!
Thank you to the many parents and grandparents who supported all our runners. Your involvement created a supportive atmosphere. Thank you to our teachers for assisting on the day, and to our faction leaders for their input.
Luemmen won the day with the most points, while Magdlen won the ‘Bouns Points’ shield, largely due to the huge number of laps completed during lap running in the mornings.
Overall: Luemmen 267, Magdlen 256, Flynn 253, Canning 250.
Bonus points Shield: Magdlen
