A fantastic finish to the schoolgirl swimming season with our CIS representatives competing at the All Schools Swimming Championships on Monday. The 6 x 50 All Age relay team finished as the 4th best squad in NSW which is an amazing achievement, with Maddison Hinds (Year 8) and Claudia Stratton (Year 9) also putting in sensational efforts in their events. Maddie has qualified for the School Sports Australia Championship later this year and we wish her all the best for that event.

NSW All Schools Touch Football

Well done to our Year 9/10 Touch Football squad who competed at the NSW All Schools qualifiers on Monday – they had a great run of games through the round matches, showing a combination of attacking flair and defensive strength. Unfortunately, their run was halted in the semifinals, going down in drop off to Westfields Sports High. Well done girls!


Congratulations to Olivia Fanning (Year 11), who has been selected in the Cricket NSW Female Academy Under 17 Metropolitan squad. Great achievement Liv!


Good luck to Emily Paterson (Year 6) who is representing IPSHA at the CIS Primary Netball today – we’ll have a full wrap of the day in next week’s newsletter but fingers crossed for Emily!

Duke of Ed

Our 2019 Bronze Duke of Ed students will be undertaking their practice canoeing journey this weekend in the Berowra Valley area. We wish these 75 girls and five parent representatives a wonderful time in the outdoors and on the water.

Wet Weather Information

With a few clouds around, a reminder for how to access information regarding ground closures due to wet weather for weekend sport. Please make sure you check the relevant website prior to leaving home to ensure your venue is open for play.
