Merry Christmas

As this is our final newsletter for the year, the sports staff would like to take this opportunity to thank all students and parents for your efforts in making 2017 a fantastic sporting year. We wish you all  a peaceful and happy Christmas and a relaxing school break. We look forward to another exciting year of sporting adventures in 2018! Enjoy reading the wrap up review of Term 4 sport below.


Secondary Swimming Carnival – Parent Assistance Request

On Tuesday 5 December we will be holding the Secondary School Swimming Carnival at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre.

We are seeking assistance from approximately 20 parents to help on the day with time keeping, as a back up to the official touch pads. This shift will only occur in the morning between 8:15 – 11:45am  (there may be a few options to assist in the second shift from 11:30am – 1:45pm). 

If you are planning on heading out for the day and are able to assist please let Dave Brock, Sports Administrator,  know via email. If you are unable to assist from 8:15am, but can assist from a later time (9:30am) this would still be greatly appreciated and we can organise cover up until this time.

Thank you again for your continued assistance and support for Loreto Normanhurst Sport.
