IGSSA Sport Survey

In our last newsletter, I wrote about the opportunity for the LN community to have a say in shaping the Sport Program as we move forward in response to the new IGSSA Sport model. The new model gives each IGSSA member school the choice between running each IGSSA sport across a single term (as we currently do), or across two terms (as two individual one-term seasons as opposed to a single two-term season).

Please click here for a more in-depth breakdown of the proposal.

The survey will be open until Monday 1 March. If you haven’t yet completed the survey, please make sure you do so by Monday!

Please click here to complete a short survey on your thoughts about the model change.


Eliza King (Year 10), Peyton Henderson (Year 12) and Kendal Henderson (Year 9) were selected to represent the IGSSA Rep Softball team that competed at the NSWCIS Championship on Tuesday 23 February. The IGSSA team finished second on a countback, winning 3 of their 4 games. Well done to these fabulous players! A further congratulations to Peyton and Kendal who were then selected to represent the CIS team in the upcoming NSW All Schools Softball Championship – best of luck girls!


Well done to Skye Halmarick (Year 8) who was named as a Development Player to accompany the NSWCIS Team to the State Championships later this year. You can read more about Skye and her achievements further down the newsletter, as she’s our LN Sportsgirl of the Week!


Emma Romeo (Year 10) and her horse Gracie competed at the Sydney International event on the weekend, coached by ex-student Ginger Soames (2019). Emma came away with 13th place overall. There were 150 riders competing at the event including some very strong Olympic horses and riders.

What a fantastic achievement, congratulations Emma and Gracie!

IPSHA Swim & Dive

Good luck to our Primary pool stars. They’re off to compete at the IPSHA Swim & Dive Carnival on Tuesday next week, and we’ll bring you all the highlights in next week’s newsletter.

Primary Cross Country Carnival

There’s more sport action for our Primary students – the Primary Cross Country Carnival is taking place on Thursday 11 March, so keep an eye out for all the results and colour from that event in next week’s newsletter.


Best of luck to our U/16’s hockey players – they’ll be off trialing on Friday 12 March against the best of the rest that IGSSA has to offer for a spot in the IGSSA U/16’s Hockey Representative Squad to compete later this year at the CIS Trials.
