Last week our College enjoyed success on the sports field. Our swim team placed sixth overall at the AIC Championships which was a respectable result given the highly competitive nature of the competition. St Peter’s Lutheran College were the outstanding team on the day. Our swimmers gained a number of top three placings and many individual personal best times for the season, along with some new College records. The swim squad also won the annual SPC v Padua swim meet last Friday night. 1st XI Cricket had a strong win and are on top of the premiership ladder. The 1st VI Volleyball also won in a tough five set game, winning the last set 16-14. The 3rd and 9B Volleyball teams remain undefeated.

This week St Patrick’s are drawn against Iona, with our senior teams playing at home. The Paddy’s Battalion will be wanting all students to come along and support both the cricketers at Curlew Park and volleyballers in the Callan Centre and Christian Brother Building.

Sign on has now been completed for both Football and Rugby. Due to the increased number of students wishing to participate, St Patrick’s require enthusiastic, experienced coaches in rugby and football to assist in our programs. If you would like to coach or referee this season please email the coordinator. The contact details are below.

Students and community members are invited to participate in a practice Shore 2 Gate run this Sunday morning. The Shorncliffe Shufflers will be running the course departing the Plaza area at 6:00am. A swim afterwards is always a great reward after the run.

75 enthusiastic runners arrived on Wednesday morning to begin the Cross Country season. Training is on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings 6:30am for a 6:45am departure. The first Cross Country meet of the season is on next Friday at Nudgee College. Racing starts at 4:00pm. Interested students should see Mr Crowley or Mr Gold to reserve a seat on the bus. Students are not required to attend all training sessions if their schedule is too demanding. Students are requested to discuss training times with the coaches to prioritise sessions.

A reminder for students who have signed on for Cross Country, Rugby and Football, that the in-season sports of Cricket and Volleyball training sessions always takes priority over all other preseason sports sessions. Exams are fast approaching and students are reminded to take a ‘balanced’ approach to their sporting commitments during this time. Students are asked to communicate with sports specific coordinators or directly with coaches well in advance if a problem is identified.

Thank you to the parents who volunteered some time at the canteens last weekend. Please consider helping our community for a small part of your day on Saturday. Please click the links below.
