Wednesday 2 March – Year 9 Sports Leaders at Year 5/6 Netball Tournament
On Wednesday some our Year 9 Sports Leaders umpired the District Primary Year 5/6 Netball Tournament at Thurstable School. Although they started a little tentatively, the girls soon found their confidence and we received lots of positive feedback from both parents and staff. It was great to see the students flourish as umpiring netball is one of the hardest primary events that we support. Well done to all who took part to make the event a success.

Wednesday 2 March – Year 9 Basketball v St Benedict’s College
Last night the Year 9 Basketball Team took on St Benedict’s in what was to be a closely contested game from start to finish. Some early goals from the opposition sparked defence to spring into action, enabling attacking players to level the scores. At the start of the last quarter, we were down 16-22 but the team rallied, supported each other, kept their heads calm and fought back to win 26-24 in the closing minutes. Excellent play from the whole team and an effort to be proud of. Way to go St Mary’s!

Thursday 3 March – Year 10 and 11 Netball v St Benedict’s College
Our Year 10 and 11 girls played a home game in the sunshine on Thursday evening after school.
Unfortunately, we didn’t come away with any wins but as always the team spirit and determination was great. Well done girls for excellent effort by all.
