Sport News - 30 July

There are still plenty of ways to stay involved with Sport in lockdown! Read the latest updates and student achievements in this week's Sport newsletter.

Citius, Altius, Fortius – Communiter. | Faster, Higher Strong – Together

Like many Australians, I am sure numerous hours have been spent over the last seven days keeping up to date with the successes of our Olympians. This week we were so proud and lucky to watch Ellen Roberts (Class of 2009) competing with the ‘Aussie Spirit’ softball team, where she was able to close out the game against Italy and become a role model to many sportswomen. Congratulations on a fantastic campaign Ellen, and you will forever be known as an ‘Olympian’.

With so many sports still to come, our focus will soon turn to Liz Clay (Class of 2012) competing in the 100m Hurdles which commences tomorrow on the 31st July. We will continue to post Olympic information on the Sport Department Social Media platforms to ensure you are kept up to date!

Finally, be sure to read this week’s feature newsletter article on how the notion of community and togetherness is manifested through the ideals of the Olympic Games; including opportunities for all students to remain connected during the time of remote learning.

Government Guidelines and Impact on Sport

With the most recent update to the Government’s announcement to extend the Stay at Home orders for Greater Sydney, Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shell Harbour Areas and NSW Health Orders; all sport training, competition and activities have been suspended until further notice.

The Sport Department will aim to keep the Loreto Normanhurst Community updated as often as practicable about return to sport, training, and competitions as information has been released by all Government Agencies; as well as advice from the Loreto Normanhurst Leadership Team.

Loreto Normanhurst Online Health and Wellbeing Program

The Online Health and Wellbeing Program for Primary and Secondary School Students was launched two weeks ago to help keep our community fit and healthy in lockdown.

The program aims to assist all students to remain healthy and active during the time of remote learning by providing a variety of opportunities and resources. This holistic program will encourage wellbeing in the areas of physical, mental and emotional health, and provides a great opportunity for you and for your household to get involved.

We encourage you to attempt as many of the activities/workouts each day as possible, keep the Department updated on your progress and send through any feedback that you may have.

The program can be accessed via the Sport Department Canvas Page or via the following link.

Loreto Normanhurst Community Olympics

The Pastoral Team and the Sport Department have joined forces to bring to you the LN Community Olympics! This opportunity is offered via the Pastoral program and creates a fun and competitive atmosphere between all houses and tutor groups. Members are tasked with competing a variety of ‘Events’ or activities where they will accumulate points to be the Champion House and Champion Tutor Group.

Be sure to check out the Pastoral Care Canvas page for more information!
