Sapsasa Year 4/5 Basketball

On Wednesday 12th September we had 2 girls teams and 1 boys team compete in the Year 4/5 Basketball Carnival at Morphett Vale Stadium. All 3 teams had a fantastic day and experience. None of our teams finished in the top 2 of their division, which meant we had no teams play in the Grand Final. But all players and coaches gave their best effort all day and learnt a lot about basketball. Thank you to the adult helpers who assisted with scoring and cheering us on. Thank you to the Year 6/7 coaches – Poppy, Ellie, Estelle, Kody and Hudson - who did a fantastic job at practices and on the day. Thank you again to Anthony and Simon for assisting the coaches on the day.

Yr 4-7 Tennis

On Friday 31st August we had 33 students attend the Year 4-7 Tennis Day at Victor Harbor Courts. The students had a great day and learnt a lot about tennis.

Initially, due to the rain, we were forced to play games and learn skills inside the gym. But once the sun came out we got to have a hit on the Victor Harbor Tennis Club courts.

Thank you to the adult helpers from Tennis SA, Victor Harbor Tennis Club and the high school. Thanks also to Charmayne and Fiona for their help on the day. Without this support the day would not be possible, so thanks again.

We entered a boys and a girls Basketball team in this carnival. The boys team won 4 out of 6 games, finishing 3rd in their pool. The girls won 1 game, drew 1 game and narrowly lost 3 games by less than 4 points, and lost to the eventual winners by 10 points. It was a great day out with 2 very competitive, hard working teams. Thank you to Anthony, Vicki, Tyann and Shanice for coaching these teams. The players are very appreciative that they got the chance to participate in this event and to learn from your knowledge and skills. The students enjoyed the day, conducting themselves with respect and displaying great sportsmanship. Thank you also to the parents for cheering us on and supporting us on the day.


On Wednesday 13th June, we played Knock Out Netball at Eastern Fleurieu School.  We played a fantastic team game that reflected our school values however the home side of EFS proved too strong for us and we walked away with a loss. 

We started strong only trailing by 3 goals at the conclusion of the first quarter, however the second quarter was our undoing with EFS powering in front with a 10 goal streak.  We pulled ourselves back together well with a commendable group mindset for the final half but the damage had been done.  The girls fought hard and showed immense improvement as the game progressed trying new positions and having fun.

Thanks again to Co-Coach Jodie Edwards for scoring and timekeeping and Trina Doig for giving up endless break times to run practices with the team. Without your help these days and events could not occur. It was also great to see some family spectators and supporters there too. Well done to everyone involved and congratulations on a great effort girls!
