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.

Future Opals!

Congratulations to our girls basketball teams for their fantastic effort at Tuesday’s carnival to bring home the shield with 5 wins and a draw for the day.


The shield will be engraved asap and proudly displayed in the office at school. Our boys also had a great day. Although hey found the competition pretty tough, their effort and team work was there all day long. Both our teams shared the ball and court time amongst their team mates, and supported each other through out all their matches.

Thank you to Claire Anton for coaching the girls team, including many training sessions before school. Queenies once again would like to thank the large contingent of parent supporters at the carnival, who gave our players plenty of encouragement throughout the day. Thank you to Mrs Fenwick and Mrs Lilly for scoring our games also.



Let’s Bounce!


Good luck to our boys and girls teams as they head to Cockburn Basketball Stadium tomorrow for a series of games against other schools in the CPSSA –

Training has gone really well and our students are excited about the day ahead.

Eagles Cup Training

The students at Queen of Apostles are very grateful for the wonderful support we have received from parent helpers in the lead-up to our first matches of the season next week. The teams have been practicing well and enjoying the wonderful weather on Friday afternoons.

Our last training session is today – again at Riverton Reserve for the soccer and footy teams, and on the courts back at school for the netball teams. We have taken the field sports to Riverton Reserve so our players can get used to playing on a bigger field, ready for what they will be playing on in the coming weeks.

Our first match details:

Friday 24th May, 2019

All Saints College, Ewing St, Bull Creek

1.30pm start.

On buses and back by 3.00pm

Spectators welcome.

Inters Swimmers!

what a fantastic (and warm) day we had at Rockingham Aquatic Centre on Tuesday for the CPSSA Inter-school Swimming Carnival.

Our team had prepared very well during 6 sessions at the Leisreplex, and that hard work showed as our students put in hearty efforts in the pool. It is great for our kids to be exposed to this level of competition. They learn that hard work pays rewards, they learn to conquer their nervous, and they learn the value of belonging to a team.

Queenies Finished 6th overall (5th in the APPS shield) – not bad for a small school. we also had two medal winners – Kyle Willesen won the yr 4 boys silver medal, while Joseph Kelleher won the yr 5 boys bronze.

A big thank you to the many parents of our swimmers for getting them along to training with a lovely breakfast, and back to school again. We appreciate your effort. We also had a great number of supporters at the carnival to cheer our team on. Thank you.

Finally thank you to Miss Jacob, Mrs Watkins and Amelia Cosmelli for their help on the day. Miss Jacob uploaded a cool video montage of some photos onto our facebook page:
