What a year the Senior Soccer girls had this year……. Undefeated throughout the interschool matches to finish on top of the division 2 ladder!!!!!
This then meant we had to play off against St Johns the division 1 winners…….and………what a great game that was.
The competition was very evenly matched and both teams played really great defense. It wasn’t until mid in the 2nd half that the first goal was scored by St Johns………before we knew it the game was over and we had lost 0-1
We are all very proud of our achievement and our team spirit.
Wednesday the 4th of May saw Brendan from Disability Sport and Recreation come and visit us. He explained how he had had an accident as a young man and become a paraplegic. He told us all about how he learnt to cope with life and how he had to relearn how to do many of the things he always took for granted.
After his talk Brendan took us outside were we got to sit in a wheelchair and play basketball.
On Tuesday 19th of April we had Jimmy Webster and Patty McCartin from St Kilda Football Club come and give us a talk about setting goals for our future. After that they took us outside were we had a kick around of the footy and we played a few games and won some prizes.
Tuesday the 23rd February the whole school went to Canadian Bay Beach for an excursion to do rock pooling. Once we arrived we jumped off the bus and set off to find our buddies. We walked along the beach to go to the rock pools….
Canadian Bay is located in Mount Eliza.
Some lucky people found crabs and sea stars.
We had perfect weather for our mornings rock pooling but it started to heat up really quickly so by snack time everyone was very hot!!!!!!
We jumped back on the bus, came back to school and all received an icy-pole from the PFA ladies………..They were delicious!!!!!!
On Friday 5th February we had a visit from the Federal Opposition Leader Mr Bill Shorten and Ms Peta Murphy, Labor’s candidate for the federal seat of Dunkley.
They were met outside the front of the school by our School Captains Monique and Jordan where they were then shown to our Prep grade. Mr Shorten and Ms Murphy had a brief chat to our new Preps before heading out to our Junior playground for a media conference.
