Written on the 4 June 2018
Dear members of the Sacred Heart College Community
In recent weeks the College has shown its diversity and aptitude of our sporting landscape as we competitively compete in a variety of sports from knockout competitions such as Rugby, Touch Football, Golf, Primary Soccer and Girls Football, to interstate Marist Basketball Carnivals and the budding annual Pre-Season Cup against Immanuel College.
Winter sport is well and truly underway. This season at the Middle School, we have once again nominated a significant number of teams in the various SAAS competitions. In Term 2 and 3, we are fielding 10 Football, 8 Soccer, 6 Basketball, 6 Squash teams and individual teams for Rugby and Table Tennis. Further to this, we are delighted to be competing in the Debating competition again this year. At Marymount Campus, we have a record 12 Netball teams, as well as Basketball, Soccer, Badminton and Volleyball on offer. It really is great to see so many students involved in winter sport, representing Sacred Heart College with pride and demonstrating teamwork and sportsmanship.
At the Senior School, the Open Rugby League Knockout team can hold their heads high, claiming back-to-back Knockout Championships early in May. Our girls and boys Open Basketball teams have long returned from the Nation's Capital, competing in the Marist Basketball Carnival during the Term 1 break. They finished in 4th place and 8th place, respectively. Our weekly Winter sport program continues to provide extra-curricular opportunities available to all abilities.
The individual sporting achievements across the College are equally as varied and prolific. We acknowledge the efforts of all of our students in their pursuit for success and in true family spirit, are proud of them.
We welcome Coralie Bandiera at the Senior School who provides greatly valued administration support. We also welcome to the Middle School, coordinators Pat Kitschke (Football and Cricket), Harry Sires (Basketball) and the recent addition of Sam Carmichael (Soccer). Sam is the coach of the First XI at the Senior School and will commence as a specialist skills coach at the Middle School this term. Finally, we thank Tom Simpson for his extensive efforts as the previous Cricket Coordinator at the Middle School, in Term 2 he returns as the venue coordinator on Saturday mornings.
