Australian Interschools Snowsports Championships
SCEGGS had six girls compete at the Australian Interschools Snowsports Championships held at Mt Buller over the past week and they produced some outstanding results.

Division 1 Cross Country
Phoebe Cridland placed 1st individually to win the Gold Medal.

Division 1 Moguls
Isabelle Senes and Claudia Holmes placed 9th as a team.

Division 1 Skier Cross
Eliza-Grace Gannon and Claudia Woods placed 8th as a team.

Division 2 Alpine
Lily Punch placed 3rd individually and won the Bronze Medal.

Further congratulations to Phoebe Cridland who also won the Australian U’20 5km cross-country event in Falls Creek and who has qualified for the Australian Junior Team. Well done to Lily Punch who also competed in Falls Creek at the Australian Junior Nationals to record some excellent results in the U’16 Giant Slalom events finishing 7th and 6th in both her races.

As we conclude the Snowsports season for 2019, I would like to give a big thank you to all the families involved this year. Thank you so much for your support given to me and Ms Axford, getting girls to their races on time and performing team manager duties. Well done to our two captains Phoebe Cridland and Isabelle Senes for supporting the girls and keeping everyone updated with your daily reports.

Indoor Hockey Trials
Indoor Hockey trials are commencing on Friday September 13 from 6:45am–8am for all players. Players are to bring their own indoor hockey stick, shinpads, gloves and mouthguard.

Good cheap indoor sticks can be purchased at Just Hockey:

Players should also consider buying a left-handed indoor glove (or both)

Expectations on the sidelines at Saturday Sport
With the last rounds approaching and semis and finals coming up in the secondary school we thought it timely to give some reminders for being a spectator at sport.

Saturday sport is a wonderful time for families and can become very exciting when scores are close. We ask that all parents keep a two metre distance from the sidelines of sports such as Touch, Hockey, and Soccer. Parents should spectate well away from the coach and team, so players are completely engaged with their teammates and coaches.

Players, especially younger students, can find it very intimidating and embarrassing when parents are yelling constantly at them or are creeping onto the field/court themselves. Parents need to be mindful that their own children are not the only players on the field and should be politely cheering for the whole team. It also makes it very difficult for umpires to adjudicate the match when they are dodging parents on the field.

We all love our dogs and they are very much part of the family but please be respectful when bringing them to matches. Not all venues allow dogs at their grounds so you should check first before bringing them. Under no circumstances should dogs be brought into school gyms or pool areas (unless they are an assistance dog). Please make sure all dogs are kept away from the teams, especially during the half time team talk. That adorable new family puppy becomes a massive distraction when showing it off before the game and at half time. Finally, please come prepared and clean up after your dog!

“From now on, there will be a change of rules and expectations for all School co-curricular activities. If a girl puts her name down for some activity, she will be expected to fulfil all requirements of that activity - 100%! We expect girls not to sign up for something if they already have another conflicting commitment, unless some arrangement is agreed between the staff involved beforehand.
We expect that parents will request permission for any such Leave from Liz Cumming or me, in the same way that you would ask for a period of time for Leave from the ordinary school day” Ms Allum

Netball Skills
Friday morning Netball Skills for Term 2 has now finished.

Our SCEGGS girls have been busy getting fit and honing their skills with some of the best coaches in Australia. Australian player Kim Green and captain of the Giants team has led the sessions each week with Swifts player Taylah Davies. They have been supported by an array of elite level players and coaches including Laura Towell (Netball NSW Junior coach of the year), Claire O’Brien (Swifts and Waratahs), Grace Hill (Canberra Giants) and our very own NSW Waratah player - Miss Styles. We look forward to having several of these coaches back again in Term 3 for the IGSSA competition.
