Congratulations to all our students who participated in the Term 3 sports program. Each week you displayed sportsmanship and courage on and off the field. It was great to see so many teams participating. Well done to you all.

I would also like to thank the coaching staff involved with each of our sports and the team managers. I am sure that our students who see you each week supporting them and their matches really appreciate your time, input and interest.

Rising Stars

Queensland School Boys Volleyball Tour
Last Friday night Matthew Kemp and Lucas Josefsen (Year 11) jet-setted off to Singapore for the Qld Schoolboys Volleyball Tour. They landed in Singapore about 6am Saturday then played 3 games in the round-robin tournament. They went into the finals undefeated and won 3-0.

Year 9 Soccer
Unfortunately, St Columban’s didn’t arrive for their clash with the St John’s Year 9 team on Saturday. The boys did, however, have a friendly game with their dads, coach and other community members. There were plenty of smiles on the players’ faces and lots of laughs and applauds. The referee for the match was a fantastic sport and stuck to most, but not all of the rules, which made for a very fun event.

Race Walking
Tamika Gee (Year 7) competed in the Australian Winter Road Race Walking Championship in Adelaide this month. Tamika entered in the under 14 girls 3km race and placed 4th and was the first home in her age group.

Round 7 JTAS Results

Basketball
Year 5/6 Girls vs TSAC: a tight match that was won by the opposition in the last minute of the game

Soccer
Year 4 Girls vs Redeemer Sky: a very competitive and close match that ended in a 1 – 0 win
Year 5 Girls vs Redeemer Gold: the team tried hard but went down 1 – 5
Year 6 Girls vs WMAC: a nail-biting finish for the team to equalise in the last minute to end 2 – 2 and once again end with an unbeaten season.
Year 4 White Boys vs Year 4 Red Boys: another ‘local derby’ which was all action from the first whistle to the last. It was a great show-piece of how far both teams have come since the start of the season. Great teamwork and determination was on display from both teams.
Year 5 Boys vs Redeemer Sky: an entertaining end to the season with a great team effort once again from the team to win 9 – 4
Year 6 Boys: BYE

Thank you to all staff, coaches and students, who were involved on Saturday with JTAS matches. A big thank you too, to Mrs Melanie Waalder and her team of parent helpers for once again running a canteen for our home Soccer matches. Thank you too, to all the parents for the great support of your children, the teams they play in, the coaches and the staff managers.
