Lap Running

It has been wonderful to see so many students and parents at lap running before school. Our runners are keen to add to the tallies on their lap cards, and earn points for their faction in the process.

It is such a healthy and positive way to start the day – exercising and socialising with friends and family. It’s not too late to come along and join in! The details are:

  • Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8.15am on the Annex oval.
  • Join in whenever you arrive at school (we stop at 8.35am).
  • First timers grab a faction coloured lap card when you arrive.
  • Parents and siblings welcome.

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 ross.bridgeman@cewa.edu.au.

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 – cpssa.com.au.

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