YEAR 5/6 NETBALL by Anika Scholefield

Every Friday for the past seven weeks, year six and five students have been travelling to Nell. E Robinson Netball Grounds, to play non-competitive netball against other schools in our Toowoomba region. The four teams did extremely well and we would like to thank all the girls for trying their hardest. Teachers were incredibly generous to give up their time to coach and umpire our teams. We would also like to give the best of luck to the Primary school netball team, as they will be competing in a two day long netball carnival, at the Sunshine Coast this September holidays. 

YEAR 5/6 HOCKEY by Eloise McKenzie

This term in Inner School Sports we have had a terrific time playing hockey. Friday afternoons we all boarded our bus and went out to the hockey fields in Glenvale. The year 5 and 6 girls and boys played against many schools around Toowoomba. Thank you to Mrs Dwyer and Mrs Nolan for their support. The year 5 team have had 3 loses and 5 wins. Whereas the year 6 team has had 2 loses and 6 wins. We all had a magnificent time on Fridays playing hockey.
