PE Week 4
In PE during week 4 Paul Scuteri from Sturt Lacrosse came and ran some lacrosse workshops. Why lacrosse? It was chosen to recognise Erin Bodner who has been an exchange teacher at our school this year. Lacrosse is the national game played in Canada where Erin calls home. It was a great way to acknowledge Erin’s nationality through the PE window. The students had a lot of fun and some took home a brochure so they could go and do a come and try session. If your child is interested in carrying on with some coaching please contact Pail Scuteri who is the Junior Recruitment Coordinator on 0422 478 280 or email

Physical Education Week was this week. There were a lot of sporting tournaments for all the students to participate in at lunch times which included Soccer, Football, Basketball, Netball and Table Tennis, all run by the Year 7 Sports Monitors. There will be an update on the tournament winners in the next newsletter. Swimming was also on the agenda for some classes and of course everyone did some fun activities during their PE Lessons. The focus of the week was to highlight how important it is to be active, eat healthily and care for your wellbeing. It was a fun week with the theme ….We like to move it….Well done everyone.
