Siena Sport

Junior Indoor Cricket

Well done to all our students who participated in the Junior Indoor Cricket grand finals late last term. Our A Team won the championships and our B Team finished second place. This was a fantastic effort! This is especially so for our Year 7 students who had to travel to and from camp to compete. Their pennants will be proudly displayed on our sport notice board near the Latingata Morrom gym throughout this term.

GSV Sport Leaders' Breakfast

The annual GSV Sport Leaders' breakfast was held on Thursday, 5 May at the home of the St Kilda Football Club, RESA Park.

Our College Sport Captains, Holly Nieuwenhuizen and Heidi May attended the event, together with Director of Sport, Julia Hay.

Each year, GSV invites the sport captains and other school sport leaders to attend a networking breakfast. Over a hundred and twenty girls from GSV member schools attended this year and it was the first time the event took place outside a GSV school. Members of the St Kilda AFLW team, Hannah Priest and Olivia Vesely, gave an inspirational talk about their sport journey and the great impact it has had on their lives.

Preparations are in full swing for our House Athletics Carnival next Friday, 13 May. Get ready for an exciting and fun day at the athletics track!
