AIC Round 6 against St Edmund’s College was highly successful for St Patrick’s. We achieved strong results in both Football and Rugby across all age groups. The 1st XI Football continued their undefeated season and 1st XV Rugby bounced back from last week’s disappointment to win on Saturday.

A number of our teams have consistently played very competitive games and are genuine premiership contenders going into the last two rounds of competition. Attendance at training becomes vital for these students over the coming weeks. Many games against Iona this weekend are premiership deciders. Both colleges have a number of teams at the top of the aggregate point’s ladder.

Mr Kearney has spoken on Assembly many times about students wearing full formal uniform before and after games. It sends a very strong message to our opposition that we have passion and pride at St Patrick’s College. Students who arrive very early to games are to be in uniform. If students arrive and move straight to warm up, the playing uniform is acceptable. Remember if students are going to remain at Curlew Park to support their school mates, all students must change into formal uniform. Many teams have taken the team rule of turning up in formal which sets an excellent positive, passionate tone for their team.

Curlew Park 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.

Full canteen facilities will be available on Saturday at Curlew Park. All parents are asked to support the Sport Support Group by volunteering 30 minutes of their time to assist in the canteen or BBQ while their son is warming up prior to their game. Please drop by the canteen and introduce yourself. Your assistance is appreciated on this very busy day.

On a sad note this Saturday is Mr David Row’s last ‘on duty’ Saturday running the Curlew Park canteen. He has for more than a decade provided bacon and egg burgers at Curlew Park! David’s sons graduated some years ago, but David has continued in his role working tirelessly for the Sport Support Group and our wider community. Thank you, David!!!!!

A reminder to students and parents that Basketball, Tennis and Track and Field sign-on closes Monday. Parents are required to use the Parent Portal to complete this process. If there are any issues please contact Mrs Di Twist, Sports Administration on 3631 9000 to gain assistance.
