Sausage Sizzle

Students will need to bring a gold coin donation for the sausage sizzle and hand this into their teachers on the morning of the event.

All students will receive a sausage sizzle at the end of their race.
Due to the large number of sausages and time frames we will only be offering standard Hellers precooked sausages.
If your child/ren are unable to have these due to allergies or gluten intolerance you are welcome to bring along a sausage that can be cooked alongside the other sausages.
These will need to be clearly labelled before handing this to the bbq helpers and your child will need to let the parents know.

In the event of bad weather a decision will be made by approximately 7:45am. A message will be emailed to families, left on the sports line and also added to our Sports Blog.

Competitive Cricket

Year 5 & 6

Our Year 5 & 6 team played their round robin games
vs Thorndan on Friday 1st March
We had a great first game together as a team against Thorndan at Ben Burn Park and there were a lot of positive from this game. The game was played in great spirit with a very supportive team approach
Final score KNS 186/5 vs Thorndan 44/9

vs St Teresa's on Monday 4th March
Another great game of cricket against St Teresa's. St Teresa's won the toss and sent us into bat. We scored a competitive 162/5.
St Teresa's went into bat and we had a good team effort in the field and bowling and managed to restrict them to 87/14.

With these 2 results it means that we move through to the next round. We are waiting to hear who our next opponents will be and when this match will take place. I will be in contact with you all again soon naming the team for this and notification of when the game is.

Year 7 & 8

It was a really great day of cricket at Ian Galloway.  We managed to beat Wadestown by about 60 runs in our first game and then lost to St Teresa's (they got the score around 160ish) with 3 balls to spare  so a really close game.

All the boys had the opportunity to bat, bowl and field and they played really well.

Honorable mentions go to Matthew Stitt 63 not out and 60 not out,  64 not out  for Adam Baker, 46 to Tom McKenzie, great bowling from Henry Eyles, great wicket keeping by Leo Yousef and a fantastic all round performance across the whole three games from Oscar Ruegg.

Also a massive thank you to Andrew Stitt who coached the team for their 3 games, Richard Ruegg and Yvette Baker for scoring and the other parents for helping with transport and supporting the team over the 2 games. We really appreciate your time and support.
