Good luck to our Swimming squad going head to head against Padua College this Friday night at Centenary Pool, Spring Hill. It’s always a great event and completes our preparations for next Monday’s AIC Swimming Championships. Students selected to swim for SPC at the AIC Swimming Championships were presented to the College community at Tuesday’s Spirit Assembly. Congratulations to all students who participated in the Swimming program and especially the students selected to represent St Patrick’s College at the Championships on Monday 6 March.


Rugby and Football sign-on is now open. Parents who have not competed the online sign-on process through the Parent Portal are encouraged to act quickly. Team numbers and coaches are presently being finalised. Students who are not presently participating in any organised sporting program are encouraged to take advantage of the preseason fitness sessions being offered over the coming weeks. Sport specific sessions will be communicated via email once students sign on.

This weekend our Cricket and Volleyball teams compete against St Edmund’s College, Ipswich which is the last home game for our Year 12 seniors. The Paddy’s Battalion have requested a large attendance to cheer on our men in their last home game in the Callan Centre and Curlew Park.

Bramble Bay trials for students born in 2005 and 2006 are advertised through student notices. Metropolitan North trials are advertised on their website. Students wishing to attend trials MUST request forms from the Sports Department and receive the official College stamp on completed paperwork. Students also MUST be involved in the SPC co-curricular program to be permitted to attend trials. Bramble Bay and Metropolitan North have an online payment system and are strict on the closing date for payment.

Parents are requested to contact the Sports Deptment if you have any concerns in regard to your son having multiple training sessions that are causing them to fall behind in their homework and general studies. Many students have visited the sports office this term to have an individualised training plan organised to make efficient use of time. Mr Ryan Schultz has been in charge of this process and is more than happy to assist.

Parents and community members who have the skills to coach or referee football or rugby are encouraged to contact Mr Ryan Schultz Our coordinators would love to hear from you. Referees and coaches will receive remuneration.

Shorncliffe Shufflers are still meeting on Sunday at 6:00am in the plaza area. Different running speeds are catered for from speedy adults/students to runners just getting back into shape. Two groups are available, 6km or 10km. At present parents and community runners outnumber the students!
