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.

Roll Call: All students are to arrive at school as usual in correct sports uniform in time for Roll Call in their Form room at 8.20am.

Under no circumstance can any girl make her own way home until dismissed after the return to school.

A school sports hat, sunscreen, and school jumper and/or school tracksuit, must be brought to the Carnival. Students will be sitting in an exposed area which can get very cold.

Ray Russell – OAM
Congratulations to Ray Russell on being awarded an OAM for Service to Athletics. Ray has been coaching discus, javelin and shotput at SCEGGS for over 12 years and is an integral part of our athletics program.

Ray is a specialist throws coach and has coached many junior athletes to achieve wonderful results at NSW, Australian and World Youth Championships. He has also had several of his athletes selected for the Youth Olympics. Ray has dedicated a lot of his time and energy in instructing and coaching so many athletes and helping them all to reach their potential and achieve their goals.

Ray Russell

Helping young athletes achieve their dreams has spurred Ray on as a top coach in the St George and Sutherland Shire over three decades. Ray has coached and held various committee positions with St George and Districts Athletics Club and Port Hacking Little Athletics since the 1990s. He is also a Life Member of SGDAC.

Ray has coached more than 300 young athletes in throwing (javelin, shot and discus) from Little As through to seniors. “My goal is to be there for my athletes and help them achieve their dreams,” said Mr Russell of his six-days-a-week commitment, which is mostly voluntary.

Some of Ray’s previous achievements include:

* Australian Level 4 High Performance Coach (Specialist in Throws)
* Australian Track & Field Coaches Association Coach of the Year
* Runner Up ANSW Junior International Coach of the Year

For those of you who do not know Ray you will see him helping adjudicate at our upcoming Primary and Secondary Athletics Carnivals in June. We are truly blessed to have Ray as part of our sporting program.

The Sports Choice Forms for Term 3 have been emailed to all parents. Please ensure you submit your daughters’ choices by Monday 20 May. If you daughter is doing tennis, gymnastics, get ready for games and yoga you need to re-enrol for next term. We do have limited numbers for some activities, and it is important we have this information early to allow IPSHA to source fields, and for us to engage coaching staff.

Year 3 Netball
Year 3 have taken to netball with great enthusiasm. The girls are playing at Kambala each Saturday and improving each match. Please ensure your daughter arrives with a water bottle, for warm up, 30 mins before the start of the game.

Year 3 Netball, IPSHA Netball, Minkey and Hockey
Saturday 4 May saw the start of the Term II Saturday sport. All teams played despite some rainfall.

Please check the venues each week, as many teams do not play in the same place.

The IPSHA Minkey/hockey rules regarding play state ‘that a player will not be able to play if she does not have shin pads and a mouthguard’.

Please double check before leaving home that your daughter has the correct equipment and a drink bottle. It is important that your daughter arrives at her venue ready to warm up half an hour before the start of her game.

Wet weather information can be found on the IPSHA app. Messages will be put on the app from 7.00am.

The draw can be accessed via the SCEGGS Cognito portal. Go to Co-curricular sport and click on ‘click here for information on individual sports’.

On Saturday Olivia Kibble rode in the 108km Letape Cycle Event in Jindabyne - run by the Tour de France. She was the sole junior female rider and rode for just over 5 hours. She conquered the Beloka Climb coming 32 out of 201 females and 153 out of 941 out of all the riders, in a ride which was described in the SMH as “brutal”. Well done Olivia on this remarkable achievement.
