This weekend is the last AIC round of Tennis and Basketball. It will be a very exciting time in the Callan Centre around 12.50pm when the 1st V Basketball will officially be crowned AIC Premiers. Win, lose or draw on Saturday the team can't miss out on being 2015 champions. Students are encouraged to be part of the Paddies' Battalion to witness their mates play the last game of the season and be part of the post-match celebration.

A number of additional Tennis and Basketball year level teams are playing for premierships in the last round. Good luck to all teams for the last weekend. I hope you have all enjoyed the season.

Year 5 and 6 Basketball has now finished for the season. All Year 5 and 6 teams have a bye this week. Students are encouraged to now turn their attention to Track and Field.

The Tennis season finishes on Sunday at 2:00pm at Coops Tennis Centre with the annual Family Tennis day. All students and their families are invited to enjoy some social tennis and afternoon tea. Brother Chris Pritchard will email further details.

Mrs Julie Bowden in the Uniform Shop is having a sale on St. Patrick's College speedos and knee length jammers. Speedos can be purchased for $10 and jammers $20. The College will be changing to an all-black tog next year. However, the speedos and jammers in stock now can be worn next year for both AIC meets and Championships or HPE lessons. $20 or less for an extra pair of training togs is very good value!

The first Track and Field AIC meet is to be held this Friday night at SAF, Nathan. This event is for Years 5 – 10. Year 5 and 6 students will be bused to the venue at 1.30pm and return to the College at approximately 6.15pm. Year 7 – 10 students will depart after Tutor Group and return to the College at approximately 8.15pm. Students are reminded to pack warm clothing and extra food items. Wherever possible St. Patrick's College clothing must be worn. Parents and spectators are welcome to attend. Track and Field training and meets are open to all students, not just the athletes trying to gain school selection. All training sessions are listed on the Track and Field page on Connect - link here».

2015 St. Patrick's College Sports Luncheon

It is with great excitement that the St. Patrick's College Sport Department will be hosting the inaugural SPC Sports Luncheon in 2015.

The luncheon is going to be held at the Eaton's Hill Hotel – Grand Ballroom on Friday October 9 (12:00pm – 4:00pm). We have been lucky enough to secure Darius Boyd, Corey Parker and Emily Seebohm as guest speakers for the event.
