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:

Magdlen Magic!

Congratulations to Magdlen for winning this year’s Faction Swimming Carnival.

The day included 100m, 50m and 25m races, relays, novelty events and a parent/teacher race. There were opportunities for all students to compete and have fun in the water. Our year 3s were exposed to their first Queenies swim carnival, and they enjoyed their chance to get in the water for 25m races, noodle races and kick board races.

There were excellent performances in the pool, with many students showing their skill and fitness. Just as impressive was the determination shown by those challenging themselves to do their best in difficult events. The respect and support shown by all spectators was a tribute to the attitude and spirit of this community.

Once again there was plenty of support from the parents and grandparents to help create a supportive atmosphere for our students. Thank you to all those who came along, especially the place judges and parents who swam with our 25m swimmers, and for helping our novelty events.

Thanks also to our wonderful teachers and staff at Queenies for their ongoing support.

The results:

Magdlen – 317 points

Flynn – 210 points

Luemmen – 202 points

Canning – 177 points

Bonus Points Shield winner – Luemmen

Swim Trials Complete

With the help of a dedicated bunch of parents we were able to get through all trials needed to place students into divisions for our swimming carnival on March 12th. Students were timed for 50m freestyle, breaststroke and backstroke. Year 5 and 6 students will be able to nominate themselves for 50m butterfly and 100m freestyle next week.

It was obvious to see that a lot of students swim regularly. Their strokes and stamina were superb. I was pleasing to see many of our students come along to have a go at competitive swimming – to see for themselves if they are ready for swimming carnival races.

And how wonderful was it to see students encouraging their classmates to finish the lap when they were struggling with the distance! Gotta love the spirit amongst these kids!

Students who were not able to swim these trials, but would like to swim in our 50m events will be slotted into an appropriate division next week. The divisions will be posted up on the sports noticeboard asap.

Thank you to Mrs Terrell, Mrs Anton, Mrs Lilly, Mrs Fenwick, Mrs Armstrong, Mrs Harrison and mr Kelleher for their help.

Calling Volunteers!

re: Parent Help at Swim Trials and Carnival

We would like to ask parents for some assistance with these events.

We require:

  • A few parents at the swim trials to operate a stopwatch and time our swimmers.
  • Place ribbon presenters at the finishing end at the carnival. We use an ipad to video the close finishes, and a teacher will be the ‘chief judge’.
  • Parent swimmers to assist in the water for our 25m swims and the novelty events. Bring your bathers and join in the fun!

If you can assist with any of these roles, please make yourself known to Mr B at the Leisureplex on the day. At Queenies we have always enjoyed wonderful assistance and participation from parents at our carnivals. Volunteering on occasions like this sets a great example for our students to follow.
