If you are wanting to play please contact Maddy. Limited to eight people total = two teams of four. We may need to have some trials to select who will be representing the school – keep an eye on the notices for the trainings/trials!

InterHouse Sports Competition

We had a great turn out of people playing and watching last Friday that saw some fierce competition on the netball court! The Staff team took out the bragging rights during the lunchtime session with some dominating form – can you take them on their pedestal during this weeks event of FUTSAL?!

FUTSAL takes center stage in the Staff vs Students Comp, they will be fast games with the first team to score staying on the court or if no one scores within the 3 minute time limit two new team take the floor.

Reminder these events happen at interval AND lunchtime every Friday until the end of the term. EVERYONE is welcome to play – just get a group together, you only need 5 players for futsal. 

Come in and watch some of the fun, plenty of space upstairs or around the edges of the court!
