Cross Country Class

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.

Faction Cross Country

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.

The results:

Overall: Luemmen 267, Magdlen 256, Flynn 253, Canning 250.

Bonus points Shield: Magdlen

Winter Sports Season Over

Our season of Winter sports is now over. It began in term one with Friday afternoon training where students chose their sport, met their coaches and began practicing skills and strategies. We managed to have a clear run of fine weather throughout all our training and match dates, and a Friday afternoon session of exercise and fun was the perfect way to finish the school week.

As Queenies is a smaller school than our competitors in terms of enrolment, we can be proud of our performances on the ovals, pitches and courts. Our students held their own and collected a bunch of wins in the Eagles Cup and Lightning Carnival. Special mention must go to our Netball B team who drew with two other schools to win their division at the Lightning carnival.

Another reason to be proud is the consistently high level of sportsmanship displayed whenever we leave our grounds and head out into the community. Win, lose or draw our students play hard to the end, and our behaviour out in the community is always of a high standard.

A very special thank you goes out to the many parents who gave up huge chunks of their time to give our students coaching and care on Friday afternoons and all day at the Lightning Carnival. They are Shane Lilly, Chris Wilkinson, Matt Davey, Dwayne Griffin, Kelvin Daby, Sharon Armstrong, Angela Goes, Ashley Goes, Sarah McIntyre, Hazel Mountford and Sarah Stapleton. Thanks also to Julie Norrish, Jo Scriven and Narelle Williams for helping wash uniforms and socks.

And finally to our hard working teachers who took care of our teams during the season – Ms Maloney, Mrs Boronovski, Miss Jacob, Mrs Spadaro, Mrs O’Brien, Miss Yaxley and Mrs Watkins. Thank you for your time and effort in making the program possible.

Enjoy these photos from football and netball. If you took any photos from any of the soccer matches, please forward them to
