It has been great to see nearly two hundred students across year levels each week participating in our Term 1 weekly GSV sport offerings: tennis, indoor cricket and softball. The participation level has been high and students have had some excellent results.
Term 2 sport signups have already closed and the numbers are looking really strong. Term 2 weekly GSV sport offerings include netball, football and water polo (Years 10 to 12).
A huge well done to the nearly sixty Siena College students who participated in the GSV Preliminary Swimming and Diving Carnivals on Friday, 3 March. These Carnivals are used to grade all twenty-four GSV schools for the Championships Carnivals coming up on Tuesday, 21 March.
Our Swim team came up against some of the strongest GSV Swim schools in our region and battled on all day in the pool, despite the skill differential. There were some outstanding individual performances from our squad swimmers (including Zara O, Emma H, Kara J, Annabelle R and Emma I) and our Senior Relay team managed a first place in a very competitive field. Overall Siena College finished in eighth place, which will see our swimmers be graded into the Division Three Carnival on the morning of Tuesday, 21 March.
Our Dive team had some exceptional results up against a Division where most of the schools have pools and well developed Dive programs.
