In Term 1, we held our Sport Day Carnivals, Ruby won for Junior School and Topaz won for Middle/Senior School. Year 1-6 Water safety week was held in Week 10 of Term 1 with many students braving the weather conditions and getting in the pool to learn various aspects to stay safe or provide assistance for those in trouble in aquatic based environments. It was great to watch so many students persevere, conquer their fears and have fun with their friends in the pool.

On Saturday 30 April our U13, U15 and U17 SAUCNA Winter Netball Season resumed. Also, our new Winter Season sports on offer for Terms 2 and 3 are Soccer (Year 1-7), Netball (Year 1-12), Tennis (Foundation to Year 6) and Basketball (Year 1-12). There are coaching and officiating opportunities for weekly sports and if students are interested please email the Sports Department with your name and experience as they will be suitably remunerated for their time and efforts. Other sporting opportunities in Term 3 will likely include Badminton and Table Tennis, also competing against other schools and clubs. More information about these will be communicated in time.

The ‘Let’s Get Moving’ program has commenced at ECC this term at both campuses, operating during Home Group time. This program involves identified students who participate in four sequential activities two mornings a week to develop their fundamental movement patterns: balance, jumping, hopping, strength, body image and coordination. These activities are fun and exciting and are personalised to challenge each child’s capabilities. These sessions are conducted by Jodie Stewart, F-2 H&PE Teacher and various School Support Officers.

Recently we have also had a number of students compete or be selected for higher representative competitions and opportunities. Some of these include:

  • Sam (Year 12) who competed at the National Athletic Carnival, held in Sydney. Sam ran a PB of 61.25secs in Men’s 400m Hurdles.
  • Orlanzo (Year 10) competed in Men’s U17 Pole Vault and cleared an equal PB 4.35 and won silver.
  • Oseremhen (Year 8) competed in Girls 4x100m relay team and won bronze in the final.
  • Oliver (Year 8) competed in the Men’s 200m Hurdles.
  • Hayley (Year 11 - pictured) was selected to attend the Matildas Youth Soccer Camp held in Canberra.

If have any questions or queries about sporting matters, please email Sports Department.
