Mrs Liane Nixon

 

Welcome back to Term 4!Liane Nixon_web

We are very excited to get underway with our summer sports and enjoy the outdoors once again.

Touch Football

Training will be held on Wednesday afternoons from 3:30-4:15pm on the Junior School oval. Students who are not collected by this time will be taken to the homework centre.

Games are held Thursday afternoons from 4:30-5:00pm on the Taylor/Kirkwood Street fields. Please ensure children are at the fields by 4:25pm and are collected promptly at 5pm. The first game for the season is Thursday October 20th. Students will need to wear their PE uniform (striped shirt) for their games.

Indoor Hockey

Games will kick off on Friday 21st October and the draw will be emailed to you as soon as it is available. Students require shin pads, mouth guards and their St John’s PE uniform (sticks are provided by the school). As this is a social competition, there is no training for this sport.

If your child did not play winter hockey and you have not completed the online Hockey NSW registration, please do so before the first game. Your child cannot take the field unless this registration is complete. Please email stjohns.sport@negs.nsw.edu.au when you have completed the registration or if you require the link again.

Swimming

Years 3-6 have already enjoyed their first swimming session on Friday 14th October. It was a real splash!

 

Following are the dates for all swimming sessions. Please ensure your child has their school swimmers, goggles and towels.
