Goals: Steve 6, Abubakar 2, Harvey 2, James 2, Gus 1

Best: Steve, Iggy, Will, Anton, Abubakar, James


Congratulations to the Senior Boys Football Team that won the NMR Grand Final.

The game was a skillful and entertaining contest, particularly considering the wet and slippery conditions.


Will in the ruck was giving our onballers first use of the ball with his precise tapwork, with our captain Iggy and Anton surging the ball into our forward line continuously. Our key position forwards, Steve and Abubakar, looked dangerous each time they went near the ball, supported by teammates getting into the right positions for any crumbs. Harvey and James also kicked multiple goals, with accurate set shot goal kicking a feature of the match.


We have now advanced through to the State quarter-finals on August 16.

Our opponent is Mildura SC, with the game to be played in Ballarat.

State Cross Country Championships


The event was held at the Yarra Valley Racecourse on July 14. Outstanding efforts by our two runners in their respective races.


Fatima Kodsi of Year 7 placed 8th out of 90 runners in the 13 girls age group. After winning both the division and region races in the lead up, it was then a brilliant effort by Fatima to finish in the top 10 in the state.


Jack Reed of Year 12 ran a strong race to finish in the middle pack out of 89 runners in the 17-20 boys age group. He ran an exceptionally fast time of 19:18 for the 5km course.

Year 9/10 Boys Netball - North Metro Region Runner-up


Well done to the year 9/10 netball squad for finishing as runner-up in the North Metro Region. The team went through the three game pool stage undefeated to qualify for the grand final against Montmorency SC. The grand final was a quality game that was tight on the scoreboard throughout, finishing 12-10 in the opposition's favour. A great achievement to progress so far.
