Magdlen Triumph…..Twice!

Congratulations to Magdlen who took out both shields in the recent Cross Country Carnival held at school. The final placings were:

Magdlen 250.9, Luemmen 248.4, Flynn 248.0, Canning 247.3

Flynn also won the ‘Bonus Points’ Shield, thanks largely to the many Magdlen parents and grandparents who participated in the ‘Parents/Teachers’ run in the middle of the programme. Credit must also go to Luemmen who had the most before-school laps completed at running practice leading up to the day.

Our champion runners were:

Yr 3 – Mary Massoud and Kyle Willesen

Yr 4 – Emmy Bekink and Deacon hollow

Yr 5 – Sienna Lilly and Brodie Davey

Yr 6 – Isabella Alves-Veira and Michael McFerrin.

Distance running is  a difficult event – both physically and mentally. We can be proud of all our students for their bravery, determination and effort on the day. I believe that through challenges such as cross country, our students will grow in resilience and character. There were many ‘magic moments’ on the day – little success stories of achievement, sportsmanship and friendship.

Thank you to the many parents and grandparents for their support of our students at this event. Your cheering and clapping for ALL our students was much appreciated, and says a lot about the community at this school!

Thank you to our wonderful teachers for their ongoing support for the Physical Education programme at Queenies. We are lucky to have such a dedicated staff.

And a final pat on the back for our students. You make us proud every day.

Congratulations to Seraphina Andrew (ex-Queenies) for being selected in the State School Sports Under 12 Hockey Team. From 86 girls competing for spots, Seraphina made the team of 14. Her SSWA under 12 team recently won the U/14 carnival held in Bunbury. She will compete in the National Championships in Newcastle in August. Fantastic Sera, well done!

 

Our very own Josh Taylor was the team mascot recently for the East Fremantle Sharks at their WAFL game.  I am sure this was a thrill for this footy fan! Thanks for the pics Josh!

Interschool Basketball

Well done to our basketball teams for playing so hard at Monday’s carnival. There was a lot of exciting steals, rebounds, blocks, passes and shots throughout the day, with some close finishes too. The boys finished the day with 4 wins and 2 losses (4th spot), while the girls finished with 3 and 3 (also 4th spot).

Thank you to Mr Radojkovich and Mrs Lilly for coaching our teams, with Mrs Odingo, Mrs Fenwick and Mrs Anton helping on the scorer’s bench. Thanks also to the many other spectators for cheering on our teams. Photos courtesy of Mr Fenwick.

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.
