Sports Corner

As we close in on the end of term, sporting opportunities certainly show no signs of slowing down.

On the 2nd of June, students from our Secondary school attended the AICES Cross Country Carnival as members of the HRIS Team. Congratulations to Lauren, Ryan and Montana who successfully gained a place on the AICES team to attend the CIS Cross Country Carnival this week. A special congratulations to Montana who came first in the Under 17 girls, and Lauren, who came 3rd in the Under 13 Girls. Bishop Tyrrell has seven students attending the CIS Cross Country Carnival this week which is an amazing result. We wish all of our students the best of luck.

Last week, Leiola, Sophie, and Nikkita attended the CSSA State Gymnastics Competition in Sydney. They performed exceptionally well and should be proud of their efforts. It was Nikkita’s first time competing at this level and she learnt a lot from the experience. Well done girls.

Our Primary students competed in the 100m races at Glendale as a make-up from the Athletics Carnival. It was a terrific afternoon that saw students fly down the track against their peers. Thank you to the students and parents for your efforts to make it, and for the staff who attended to assist. The completion of the Primary Athletics Carnival provided us with the opportunity to announce the House winner. Congratulations to Darcy house who took out the title in 2021. An even bigger congratulations to our students who have been selected to represent the College at next terms HRIS Athletics Carnival.

In Primary Sport, students were put through their paces by coaches from Hunter Basketball. The levels of engagement and participation were high, with many verbalising their enjoyment. Our Kindy students had Ali come in from Primarily Active to complete a number of activities that focused on gross motor development, collaboration, and teamwork skills. It was wonderful to see and hear the excitement of the students.

HISSA Athletics and the Under 15 Boys Football Gala Day will finish up our term. We wish students participating all the success.
