MACKILLOP WINTER TRIALS
On Friday the 6th of May we had students attend the MacKillop Winter trials in Canberra. Selected students tried out for Boys and Girls Soccer, Netball and Rugby League. Our students participated in Wagga Diocesan Teams against teams from Parramatta, Sydney, Wollongong and Canberra-Goulburn. Congratulations to Beth and Claudia who have been selected in the MacKillop Girls Soccer team that will compete at the NSWPSSA State Championship which is held in June in Albury. We congratulate all our students who tried out and thank their families for making arrangements for them to attend.
Our Track Events were held at West End yesterday. Thanks go to all parents and family members who helped us get through the day. A special thanks to the Early Morning Team who helped set up the equipment so the carnival was ready when students arrived. There was great participation in the 800m and 200m races which was great to see. Our thanks also go to The Griffith Little A’s Club, Parks and Gardens Department who also played a big role in our carnival.
Our Age Champions were:-Ryan (Senior Boy) ; Ava ( Senior Girl); Mason ( 11 Year Boy); Alex (11 Year Girl) ; Mason ( Junior Boy) and Sahara ( Junior Girl). Brendan House (Red) won the Father Beltrame Trophy. Patrick (Green) was in second place followed by Yellow (McAuley) and Blue (Marcellin). In the last six years all Houses have won the Carnival at least once each.
Our thanks must go to Glynnes at Athletes Foot for the very generous donation of $735 to the school. This is a result of their Family Rewards scheme. Don’t forget to let them know that you are a member of our St Pat’s community if you are buying shoes there…even Mum and Dad! They donate $5.00 to our school for every pair of shoes bought.
