Swimming 2016




NORTHERN ZONE FOOTBALL 2016

In week six some children went to the Northern Zone soccer tournament at Alex Moore Park.  There were two teams the competitive and social.  The coaches were Mr Elliott and Amy's dad Andrew Slessor


The tournament was so tiring, as we played 7 games, but fantastic at the same time. There were lots of bumps and bruises but no matter  what  we supported each other the whole way.  There were lots of teams for example St Benedict, Khandallah and St Bridgets but each game everyone played fairly.


The competitive team won the competition winning all its games and beating Churton Park in the final. The social team did extremely well and only lost to St Bens 4-2. Both teams played really well throughout the competition .
