Sport is back!
It has been so great to see the girls back out on the netball courts and hockey pitch and enjoying their sport again. It’s still not quite sport as we know it just yet, with restrictions still in place until July 1st, but it’s been amazing to see the ways girls have adapted to those guidelines. Hills Netball training is back in full swing, and we’ve begun trials for our Senior 1sts, Junior 1sts and Year 7 1sts, IGSSA Netball and IGSSA Hockey teams. I encourage everyone to get out and about over the holiday break and continue preparing for the return to competitive fixtures.
HDNA has announced that Hills Netball fixtures will resume on July 4, with the first three rounds being held during the School Holiday period. If your daughter is playing Hills Netball this season, please keep an eye on your emails for further information regarding the upcoming season.

IGSSA has announced that the Tildesley Tournament will be rescheduled for the weekend of July 18 & 19. Students who were involved with Tildesley have received information from Mr Brock.
We are currently awaiting confirmation from IGSSA regarding the Athletics season, including the status of Friday Night Athletics meets and the IGSSA Track and Field Championships. To allow us to prepare for those events, we are asking all girls who would be interested in competing at the IGSSA Track and Field Championships to register their expression of interest to indicate our likely numbers for participation should the events go ahead.
