primary swimming 2016
dodgeball district champs!
Sherbrooke's Year 9 and 10 boys are district dodgeball champions. It was a battle of the small schools. Our boys had to adapt to the bigger courts and slightly different rules. We managed to win a couple of our pool games and won our way to the semi final. The boys took the challenge on and comfortably won that match. We took on Bayswater in the final. We attacked them hard and it paid off. We won the final with time to spare. Well done team!
district cross country
This year for the first time, we have students that have qualified for the Eastern Metropolitan Region cross country competition for both primary and secondary. Big congratulations goes to Alice Piggot, Nathan Milligan, James Roberts and Tahj Kensley. They all competed outstandingly well for their school and should be proud of their efforts and to make it that far. Well done on a super effort guys!
swimming carnival 2015
Finally... we were blessed with amazing weather for the first of our whole school sports carnivals. With great weather and the highest attendance from our students ever, Belgrave pool was a buzz of activity. A large crowd of parents (also the most ever) were there to cheer on the kids as well.
As usual, we kicked things off with the primaries in the water. They took part in a mix of traditional and novelty events. The cork scramble was a big hit, as was the new cup and saucer race.
As the sun began to shine in the early afternoon, so did the secondary students in the freestyle and breaststroke events. The staff vs students race attracted a lot of attention. The staff were victorious - but only just!
A new event, the “big splash”, was a big hit, with massive crowds gathering to watch! Competitors literally had to jump in the pool making the biggest splash possible in front of our distinguished panel of splash judges.
Speaking of big crowds, an unexpected dance-off developed near our resident DJ, Luciano! He had the crowd dancing away to some of the old floor fillers of yesteryear. At one point there was even a conga line rocking around the pool!
special sporting events
The ride goes from November 26 to December 4.
Team members will be camping and living the good life while doing the 540km ride. It’s a whole new world traveling by bike with 5 000 other people, from 12 to 90 year olds.
Everything is included in the cost – except a tent, bike and personal belongings.
Those wishing to take part must make a commitment to train so they are fit and able to enjoy the ride. See DD for more details.
Another cycling event Sherbrooke will take part in will be Around the Bay In a Day. The 100km ride will take part on October 9 and will be a good alternative for those thinking the Great Vic ride is too costly. The Bay ride will cost about $100. For that you will get lunch, a jersey and support on the ride. The route is from the city to Frankston and back again. Obviously, once again, training is the key. Most training will be on either Saturday or Sunday mornings, plus longer rides once the event date draws nearer.
