Last Saturday was a tough round against Marist College Ashgrove in both Football and Rugby. Our 6As and 10As football had fantastic wins. The 1st XI Football played extremely well for a 1 -1 draw . This week sees teams playing against St Edmund's College and ATC. Years 9-Opens will be playing at Ipswich whilst Years 5–8 will be playing at Curlew park.

Full canteen facilities are always available on Saturday’s at Curlew Park. Last weekend Mrs Ann-Marie Percival, Canteen Co-ordinator, was very appreciative of the support received from parents. Many hands make light work! An early request for all community members assistance for Saturday 1 June for Back to Shorncliffe Day. The canteen is particularly short of help later in the day after 12:00noon during the senior games. If you can assist by serving or cooking on the BBQ please drop in while your son is participating in his warm up activities.

Parents and students are reminded that Football and Rugby co-curricular team photos will be taken approximately an hour before kick off during Back to Shorncliffe Day. A full schedule of game and photo times will be communicated next week.

Students must be correctly attired to compete for St Patrick’s College. Rugby shorts must be green not blue as was the case with a few senior players last Saturday. Students are also reminded to pack or wear their formal uniform to the game. Student and parent circumstances change throughout Saturday’s so the students should pack a formal uniform in case they decide to remain after competition games. This enables students to stay and be part of the Paddy's Battalion during the later games. Students who arrive before warm up should be wearing formal uniform. Many players have a team rule to turn up in formal uniform which projects a real ideal of being a proud Paddy's Boy.

Spectators are reminded that it is a safety regulation that everyone except match officials must remain behind the ‘red’ line adjacent to all playing field sidelines at Curlew Park. Thank you for your assistance in maintaining a safe playing environment for the players and match officials.

Thank you to all parents for being diligent in arriving at Curlew Park promptly after 5:00pm to collect your son after training. The team coaches really appreciate this, so they are able to depart quickly themselves to spend time with their families and evening commitments.

AIC Cross Country

Curlew Park was the first venue to host the AIC Cross Country Championships outside of Limestone Park. The day run very well and many schools commented on the venue and how good a facility Curlew Park is.

Our team competed well and place 5th overall. Third place for Angus Twist (Yr 6) and a Fourth to Matt Moate in Opens were our best individual results.

A special thank you to Mr Alec Gold for coordinating and to all coaches to their time over the last two terms. St Patrick's Sport would also like to thank all the staff who assisted on the day. Their efforts helped to make the event run smoothly.
