Sports News

The Primary School is abuzz with exciting sporting news from several of our sporting superstars. Our community wishes to congratulate all girls who have shone in their sportswomanship, teamwork and dedication recently.

Georgia Mercer-Witenden, Year 5, competed at the Zone 23 one-day event in dressage and show jumping. Georgia and her pony, Bindi, rode to victory with Georgia being awarded overall champion. Georgia said that she loves her pony Bindi because she is a ‘safe’ pony, as most ponies refuse to jump and walk around the jump. Congratulations Georgia on this wonderful achievement.

Emma Dinca, Year 5, recently competed in the first Gymnastics State Championship trials. In Level 9 Under, Emma finished first in Bars and third on Floor. Last weekend in the second state trials, Emma also finished first again on Bars and third on Floors. This is a fantastic achievement! We wish Emma the best of luck for the upcoming State Championships!

Congratulations to Gabriella Connell from Year 6 who was selected for the CIS primary girls football team. She will play in the NSW PSSA championships on 16 – 18 June. Further commendations go to Gabi for her display of leadership during our recent Cross Country Carnival. After coming second in the 3km race, she joined other girls to support them all the way to the finish line.


Cross Country Carnival

On Thursday, 13 March we all participated in the Primary Cross-Country Carnival. It was full of energy, enthusiasm, and excitement. There was consistent support and encouragement, and everyone was cheering on their classmates. We have confidence that every single student loved the chanting and cheers and enjoyed the event. There was great House Spirit and sportsmanship shown throughout the whole event and the running was incredible. A huge congratulations out to everyone who participated!
