Tahlia also achieved first place in Combined Training making her the NSW Intermediate Combined Training Champion. Congratulations Tahlia on an outstanding effort and we wish her all the best of luck as she continues taking part in the Championships this weekend.

To IGSSA Basketball Teams 23 and 24, who were season winners. Well done to Teams 14 and 22, who were season runners up.

PARENT SUPPORTER CLOTHING FOR SALE

Supporter t-shirts and soft shell jackets are now available for purchase from the uniform shop. Sport at Loreto Normanhurst would like to encourage all supporters, parents or otherwise, to continue building the wonderful sporting spirit we have at Loreto by purchasing a supporter specific t-shirt or jacket to wear at sporting events and carnivals.

 

PARENT TEAM MANAGERS

Each sporting team is allocated a coach by the school and has a nominated student captain to assist the coach where possible. However, there are occasions where another set of hands or an adult point of contact is required within a team. With this in mind, the Sport Department extends an invitation to our parent body to consider being a volunteer for your daughter’s team and be appointed as the Parent Manager. For more information, please contact the Head of Sport, Ms Jasmine Palmer.

 

SPORT UNIFORM 2016

A PowerPoint presentation of the uniform can be found on the Student Sport Portal which students can access.

Girls selected in Senior Firsts and Junior First teams will have a different uniform (top or dress) that they hire from the Uniform Shop.

To see the full range please see the PowerPoint slideshow in the Sports Portal.

DUKE OF EDINBURGH AWARDS

There has been a change of the location of the Bronze canoeing practice journey this weekend, as Hornsby Council has unexpectedly scheduled some back burning very close to where the original campsite is. A section of the canoeing route and the campsite itself would be affected by smoke, so it has been decided that a different location would be in the best interests of all participants. All participants have been sent the new meeting points and campsite locations.

Any girl who has completed the Bronze or Silver Award and would like to continue on to the next level Award should contact the Sports Office for joining forms and details.

All girls undertaking any Adventurous Journey must complete/update their medical forms online via the Southbound Adventures website. Instructions to do this are available from the Sports Portal (Duke of Ed tab).

Important Link: Southbound Adventures.

All information regarding the Duke of Ed program is on the Student Sport Portal on the Duke of Edinburgh page.

Girls should only direct questions regarding Duke of Ed to the Sports Office after they have made their own attempt to find answers using the Duke of Ed web site. This program encourages girls to make their own enquiries and use their own initiative.

Address queries to lbryan@loretonh.nsw.edu.au.
