Normo vs Riverview Netball

It was a fantastic event on Monday as our Year 12 netballers took on the best St Ignatius had to offer to raise funds for the Bursary Program. The gym was packed and the action was incredible – LN jumped out to an early lead on the back of accurate shooting going forward and some lockdown defence at the other end of the court. The game became so one-sided, it was only fair to loan champion netballer Sophie Dwyer  to the Riverview team so that they might hit double-digits! At the final hooter, the final score was 34-14, however 46 of those goals came from Loreto Normanhurst shooters! Big thanks to the Riverview squad for being a part of a tremendous and traditional fundraiser!


Well done to our Dance Troupe girls who performed at the Independent Dance Festival last week. It was a long day of dancing and learning; they spent the day in workshops, followed by a performance evening. Both groups put on a fantastic show and had the crowd in awe! Well done girls!


Great job by Sofia Storgato (Year 6) and Tayla Moore (Year 5), who represented IPSHA at the CIS Primary Athletics Carnival on Thursday. Sofia ran well in the 100m and 200m, finishing 5th and 6th respectively. Tayla was on show from the throws circle, taking out 1st in the discus and 2nd in the shot put. Great work from both girls!

Still on athletics, good luck to our teams competing in the NSW State Relays on Tuesday – I’ll have those results in next week’s newsletter.


Huge congrats to Charlotte Barnett (Year 5) who took home a gold medal at last weekend’s Rhythmic State Championships. She put together an amazingly consistent performance across the events, finishing 2nd in the rope, 2nd in the ball and 4th in the ribbon to finish 1st overall! Way to go Charlotte!

Best moment of Loreto Sport for you: Being awarded “best and fairest” for Year 7 Netball and Year 11 Softball.
