Training, Training, Training!

Our year 5 and 6 students have been busy preparing for Inter-school basketball, netball, football and soccer.

Our volunteer coaches, Mr Strommen and Mr Radojkovich have got the basketball squads training before school in preparation for the week 5 carnival.

Go Queenies!!

 

Interswim!

Well done to our team for their spirited performance in the pool on Tuesday. There was some tough opposition, and although we didn’t bring home any shields or medals, we did take away some encouraging signs, plenty of smiles and enriching experiences for our students to reflect upon.

Once again Queenies had a great turnout of supportive parents to cheer our swimmers on. The supportive and inclusive culture that we enjoy at our carnivals continues to grow, and we look forward to continued support in the future.

Overall Queenies finished in 7th place by placing in 12 races.

Thank you to the many parents who came along on the day, but also to those who got their children to training these past few weeks with a delicious breakfast. Thank you to Mr Wylie and Ms Knight for coaching, and a special thank you to Bianca Lilly and Evy Kheng for doing a fantastic job of marshaling the swimmers at the carnival.

CPSSA Swimming Carnival Program

We have had a great turnout in a productive first week of training for our squad. There are  three sessions left next week before the big day on Tuesday 4th April.  Our swimmers have been working hard on their dive starts, finishes and stroke technique.

Flynn Again!

Congratulations to Flynn for winning back-to-back swimming carnivals.

The day was non-stop action with races, relays, competitions, contests and presentations. Ours students once again showed tremendous spirit and sportsmanship throughout the day with super efforts in the pool, along with continuous support from the grandstand. There were many instances of bravery, resilience, camaraderie and respect which certainly made the many onlookers of teachers, parents, grandparents and peers very proud.

Thank you to our wonderful teachers for their help in running the carnival, and to the many parent helpers, without whom we could not have held many of our events. We are lucky to have such a supportive and inclusive culture here at Queenies.

Th final scores were:

Flynn 370, Canning 255, Magdlen 213, Luemmen 204

Canning won the ‘Bonus Points’ Shield, with terrific scores in the novelty events, and great support from the Canning parents in the pool, scoring and judging.
