Sportsmaster | Preparatory School

Last week was a very busy week in the Prep Sports calendar. Firstly, the Year 3-6 House Swimming Championships were held on Monday. As previously noted by Mr Wyatt in his report, the carnival was again a fantastic School event. It was a real shame that parents weren’t able to join us for the day, however, I hope that the boys went home and told their parents of their enjoyment. Congratulations to School House who took out the Swimming House trophy and to the Age Champions as well. 

On Friday our Year 3 boys had their first of five Friday afternoon sessions of the Year 3 Sport Programme. It was great to see them embrace House rivalry in the matches of football that they played at the Prep campus. I look forward to seeing what else Year 3 has to offer over the course of the programme.

On Saturday we had Round 1 of Summer Saturday Sport. However only the 1sts to 4ths Basketball were able to play their matches because of the wet weather that covered the majority of Sydney. Unfortunately, none of the results went our way but there was obvious potential in our players and teams and hopefully we will start to gel in the next game or two. 

The 2021 School Cross Country Championships will be held on Thursday March 11 (Week 7). It was confirmed during the week that we’ve been allowed to use Henley Park in Enfield as our site for this year’s event. I encourage all boys to try out the park before the day. For boys in Under 10s and under, the event will be a 2km course, while Under 11’s and Opens will both be 3km. At this stage parents will not be allowed to attend the event and a note with all the details will be sent home via email in the next week or so.
