Saturday Sport Hockey and Netball

It is wonderful to see so many St John’s students involved in sporting programs this season. We have two teams in the New England Hockey Competition- an Under 9 and Under 11’s team.

Both teams are doing exceptionally well and have had some great results. The students are demonstrating excellent receiving skills and have showed improved passing. They are strengthening their defence and developing their ability to mark their players.

We also have several teams involved in the local Netball Competition. The students are showing great progression from week to week and have been performing well in games. They are gaining a great understanding of the rules of netball and have been outstanding with their passing, catching and shooting skills.
