Interhouse Athletics Carnival
The annual Interhouse Athletics carnival was held on the Secondary Campus yesterday.  There was an increase in participation this year which has resulted in close scores between the houses.  Full results will be released in the next edition of ripples.

Term Three Sport
Last weekend marked the beginning of term three sport.  It was pleasing to see the number of close games on display resulting in each sport experiencing success.  The next three rounds will be Home Games as we take on Ormiston, Canterbury and St Paul’s. Stay a little longer or arrive a little earlier to cheer on other year levels.  Saturday 18th August will be a bye.

Metropolitan West Trials
Metropolitan West trials have now commenced for the year and all are being advertised in the Daily Notices.  Students wishing to trial must have previous experience in their chosen sport and on most occasions, be required to trial at the Southern Scorpions District Trials.  Please ensure you see Miss Birch before the nominated date.

For all the latest sporting news, photos and updated don’t forget to ‘like’ the St John’s Anglican College Sport Facebook page.

If you are attending sports and take some great photos, please supply them to the sports office by Facebook message or USB.  These may be used for Facebook, Ripples, Yearbook or the Sports Dinner.  We love to brag about our sporting achievements so please supply as many images as you can.
