wet weather

We simply can’t take a trick this term – with Week 1 being cancelled due to the heat and now the successive weeks of rain, all we’re missing is a dust storm and a plague of locusts to complete the line on our “Sports Cancellation” bingo cards.

Unfortunately it looks like another wet weekend – as always, the most up to date information for all our IGSSA and IPSHA sports can be found directly at their wet weather websites.


All Loreto venues will be closed tomorrow – this includes IPSHA football and IGSSA softball on our Oval and IGSSA tennis on the school courts and at Westleigh. At the time of publishing, Mills Park is still pending, however please check the website for the latest.

FYI – once a venue is closed, it will not reopen for the remainder of the weekend. Some venues have begun closing already, so if your venue has closed already, enjoy your sleep in and we’ll try again next weekend.



On Saturday the 11th March, a few of our Tildesley Cup tennis girls participated in the 2017 North West Secondary Schools Challenge at Pennant Hill Parks. Throughout the evening, all of our girls played some excellent tennis, and this was highlighted in some of the results. Faith Zalm (Year 9) and Annabelle Gohl (Year 7) were able to clinch first position in division 4 and Tara Savell-McKean (Year 9) and Hannah Nicholson (Year 9) won division 6. Congratulations to both of these pairings on their success which will put them in good stead for the upcoming Tildesley Tennis Competition.


athletics trials – Update

Unfortunately, the weather has not been kind to our trials plans, with all attempts to make our girls go higher, faster, stronger dampened by wet, wet, wet. We will be scheduling new dates for the 200m and 400m trials as well as all field events as the opportunities present themselves. All girls will be emailed with new times and dates once they have been confirmed.

As always, the 100m, 800m and 1500m races will require girls to nominate via the portal link they’ve received via email. Please note: no late nominations will be accepted on the day of the carnival so all nominations will need to be in the system in advance.
