Last Friday and Saturday Mother Nature played havoc with our organised trials in Swimming and Cricket. Our apologies for the inconvenience caused with the resultant late cancellation notice of sporting fixtures. For the most up to date information parents are requested to download the College App. Although the Sport Department aim to utilise the sports specific ‘Connect’ pages, the App is by far our fastest way to convey emergency information.

Volleyball trials against Marist College Ashgrove did go ahead and from all reports the students enjoyed finally playing a game after a few weeks of intense training.

On Friday night the swimmers travel to St Peter’s Lutheran College. This is the students' only chance to qualify for the College Championship Swimming events to be held on Thursday during the Inter-House carnival. Friday night information has been posted on the Swimming Connect page - link here».

On Saturday the start of the home and away AIC Cricket and Volleyball season begins. Our College teams will play Iona College, Wynnum. Playing and venue details have been posted on the Connect pages. A reminder to our community that schoolboy sport is about having fun, playing with your mates, developing new skills and representing the College. Parents are asked to remain positive when supporting our teams and when having a family discussion regarding the game’s outcome.

Next Thursday is the annual Inter-House Swimming Carnival. Further detail will be sent home early next week but the objective of the carnival is maximum student participation. Many events are held over 25 metres and students can be supported by fellow students to complete events if swimming presents a challenge.

Parents and students are reminded that the Uniform Shop stocks all sport uniform requirements. Students are expected to be dressed appropriately while playing and spectating. Full formal uniform must be worn by student spectators. Unfortunately, students may be excluded from playing or spectating if College procedure is not followed. Please contact individual sports coordinators if acquiring a uniform presents a problem.

Mr Brad Harbottle brad.harbottle@gmail.com is the College's Tennis coach. Mr Darbottle will be conducting Tennis coaching before school on our front courts. Please refer to the information article in this issue of the Calling for further details.
