Congratulations

To Grace Thomas (Year 8) who has been selected for the U15 NSW Metropolitan Cricket team that will be competing at Cricket nationals in Canberra in January 2017. Grace has been attending the NSW cricket academy program since July and due to her performance in training and in the State Challenge competition held during the October holidays, she was rewarded with selection in the NSW team. Congratulations Grace on an outstanding effort and we wish you all the best of luck in January.

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.
