Physical Education News

In Physical Education the students have returned to the pool and are working with Deb Jones and her experienced instructors in the differentiated 'Learn to Swim' Programme. Your sons are swimming in one of their Physical Education lessons per week and are on the College grounds the other lesson. Our Year 3 and 5 boys have been focusing on the intricacies of European Handball whilst our Year 4 students have been practicing for their Year 4 JPSSA Basketball Carnival being held at Bendat Basketball Centre. The keenly contested Inter-House Gaelic Football competition is drawing to its conclusion and at the time of gong to press David House have qualified for the final with the other semi-final still to be played with Gordon House taking on Bruce House for the right to meet David House. It has been a fantastic year of Inter-House competition and a big thank you to all the boys in Year 3, 4 and 5 who have made the competitions such a success once again this year.
