Our first sports carnival of the year is always met with great excitement and this weeks ISD Basketball Carnival was no exception.
Our ISD (Independent Sydney and Districts Secondary School Sport Association) has grown to 17 schools of which 12 were in attendance at the Bankstown Basketball Stadium. Our students were supported by PDHPE Teacher & Co-curricular Organiser, Jonas Stoebe.
It was a very busy day for all schools and teams as they played in two pools on many courts. As many of the participating schools have students from diverse cultural backgrounds or are international schools, these carnivals provide an opportunity beyond the sports context to connect and relate to a culturally diverse group.
Both our boys and girls teams did very well by coming third in their respective draws just missing out on a spot in the semi finals.
For students attending our sports carnivals, it provides a potential pathway to zone or state level carnivals. Yr 12 student, Jessica W was nominated in the ISD Basketball team to represent our school at the AICES Basketball Championships later this term!
We want to congratulate Jessica on this great honour.
Our relatively small school can be proud of the achievements of the individuals that sign up for the carnivals. They are often not pro players, just willing to give it a go and compete with friendly spirit on the courts or fields against formidable opposition. Further improving both their skills and their social ability as team players experiencing wins and losses.
Well done to all!
