Our snowsports girls have been competing at the SSA Northern States Interschools Snowsports  Championships this week with some incredible action and results.  I will write a full account of the competition in next week’s newsletter. 


Congratulations to Charli Fidler (Year 10) and Erin O’Brien (Year 10) who were undefeated as part of the IGSSA Opens Netball team yesterday, winning every game by at least 15 points! Further congratulations to Charli, who has been selected into the NSWCIS Opens team to compete at the All Schools Challenge next month.


On Monday, our Primary School Athletes will be testing themselves against the best IPSHA have to offer as they represent Loreto Normanhurst at the 2019 IPSHA Athletics Carnival at SOPAC. Best of luck to all our competitors!

An important note regarding correct sport uniform for Saturday competition sport:

In the case that a Loreto Sport staff member is not present, your team coach will have the authority to remove a student from play and/or not allow a student to start play. Thank you in advance, for your cooperation in this matter. It is our expectation that you will be appropriately dressed and in uniform while representing Loreto Normanhurst. Please see your sport specific booklets for full details on what uniform is required for your sport.
