Queenfish!

Congratulations to our swim team for their spirited performance in the pool yesterday. Queenies placed in so many races in what was an enjoyable and exciting day of competition. All the training and preparation paid off as our squad fought hard to come away with 6th place overall, and 5th place in the APPS shield (average points per student) – pretty good for a relatively small school.

Once again the Queenies community was out in force to offer their support. Thank you to those parents who came down to make some noise and cheer on our team. Thank you to Miss knight for her time and swimming expertise.

Eagles Cup 2018

 

Last Friday saw the launch of Eagles Cup 2018 for year 5 and 6 students. We gathered in the undercover area to give the students their choices of sports to participate in and  explained the format of the competition. We then headed out for a light training run.

Training will continue on Friday afternoons from 2pm to 3pm. If anyone in our community would like to help train/coach/umpire our teams your time would be much appreciated. You don’t have to be a year 5 or 6 parent – anyone in our community is encouraged to be a part of this competition.

More info regarding match dates next term will be forwarded as they come to hand.

The competition was pretty close all day with all factions producing race winners and medalists. The super efforts from our swimmers made us all proud, as many pushed themselves to attempt races they hadn’t participated in before. The enthusiasm and support shown for each other’s performances was heartening, as was the great support from all parents and grandparents in attendance.

The final scores were:

Flynn 339, Canning 281, Magdlen 236, Luemmen 220.

Canning took out the Bonus Points Shield, mostly due to the many Green parents who volunteered to help out during the day. Magdlen were certainly the best at cheering on the day!

Individual Champs and Runners-up:

Yr 4 Champions: Joseph Kelleher and Imogen Watters

Yr 4 R/UP: Deacon Hollow and Chloe Taylor

Yr 5 Champions: Nathan Watters and Charissa Kheng

Yr 5 R/UP: Ashton Fung and Sienna Lilly

Yr 6 Champions: Michael McFerrin and Isabella Alves-Veira

Yr 6 R/UP: Matthew Radojkovich and Summer McCann

Inter-school training will commence in week 8 – a note will follow.

A huge than you to the many parents for coming along to support this event, and for getting behind all our swimmers. Thank you especially to the parents who place judged, timed and helped in the water. If you took some photos today and would like to share them, please email them to ross.bridgeman@cewa.edu.au.

Our teachers once again were a great support and resource to rely upon – thank you!

And to the students at Queen of Apostles, who challenged themselves to try, improve and do great things today – you are AWESOME!

Welcome to 2018

Welcome back to all our families returning for another year at Queenies, and a special welcome and hello to our new families. We hope you have all settled in to a routine and the start of the year has been smooth.

Another busy year lies ahead of us with many activities planned for our community to be involved in. First up are the swim trials for our years 4-6 students who have passed at least level 4 swimming. These trials help determine divisions for the upcoming swim carnival (details below), and also allow students who haven’t swam in our swim carnivals before to test themselves out in a 50m pool.

Following that is our Faction Swimming Carnival for years 3-6. This is the first of our big carnivals for 2018. It is a fun day with a mix of competitive races and fun novelty events for students, parents and teachers to participate in.

Details:

Swim Trials – years 4-6 – Riverton Leisureplex, Wednesday 14th Feb 12.30 – 2.30pm

Click here for the swim trials note.

Swim Carnival – years 3 – 6 – Riverton Leisureplex, Tuesday 20th Feb, half day (am) for yr 3, full day for years 4-6.

Congratulations to our A Division girls team for bringing home the shield in a tight competition on Tuesday. Our players gave their all and behaved superbly in what was a fun and exciting day. With big hits, excellent bowling, classic catches and thrilling run-outs, it was clear to see the training had paid off. A huge thank you to Mr Edmonds for his time, expertise and enthusiasm in guiding our teams to do so well. Our Girls B team placed second, while both Boys teams managed a win each from their 3 games.

Thank you also to Mrs Maloney for helping on the day, and to the many parents for their support. Enjoy these photos thanks to Mr Koh.

Congratulations Aths Team!

Over two days of competition our aths team worked really hard and did their best against bigger schools and some very talented athletes. We were positioned 7th after day #1 (jumps, throws and 400m), and managed to keep that spot after the completion of day #2 (200m, sprints, leaderball and relays). We placed 3rd in the A.P.P.S. Shield (Average Points Per Student). The students were delighted with this result, as were the many parent supporters who cheered on our kids with spirit the entire competition.

I was very pleased with the effort at training leading up to the event. The hard work paid off as the kids made big improvements in just 2 weeks of practice. Especially in the baton relays – NO DROPPED BATONS!!!! Stand-out performances came from Sophie Eaton who tied for a Silver medal in the year 4 girls, and Alicia Herbert who tied for the Bronze medal for the year 6 girls.

Thank you to Mr Markandu and Mr Koh for helping at training and providing expert photography. Thanks also to Ms Knight and Ms Laity for helping on both days.

Special mention must go to our wonderful team captains – Alicia Herbert and Jeff Douce, along with the year 6 students who were a great help on both days and set an excellent example for all our students to follow.

There were many ‘magic moments’ over the two days that make us proud to be a part of the Queenies Family. One example was watching many of our athletes push through painful ailments and injuries – determined to still try their best despite the discomfort!

If you witnessed such a moment, please share it with us. We love to hear those good news stories.
