SEISA SPORT - 12 March

SEISA intermediate boys Cricket
Another loss of the toss to Captain Tom Anderson but the desired result of bowling was achieved. Good all round effort in the field, keeping the opposition to 50. Great effort by Bryce Worboys with 3/5 off 4. Rory Van Berkel and Tom Anderson also started well with the ball with 1/6 and 1/12 respectively. Easy chase for the boys with Tom Anderson getting the boys home with 30. The boys got 57 off 12 overs. Great job boys.

SEISA Intermediate girls tennis  - Beaconhills Pakenham -WIN 44-16
Today all the Grammar girls did really well, winning 44-16. Beaconhills Pakenham had some really talented girls, especially in the ‘A’ pairing, which led them to win their only set 6-2. Besides the win, the conditions were fairly good. Overall, Grammar had a successful day and all the girls did extremely well. Excellent effort!

SEISA Intermediate boys Tennis - Beaconhills Pakenham - WIN 48-7 (8 sets to GG, 0 sets to BHP)
With a full team, Gippy Grammar dominated the opposition without losing a single set. Highlight players were Matt, Tayden, Tom and Will. The closes game was between Liam, Charlie and their opposition. Given that last week Grammar lost, a win of this calibre is great!

SEISA Intermediate girls Basketball - Beaconhills Pakenham - LOST 13-44
Another tough game for us but we kept our composure and played our best until the end. Well done to all of the girls for their willingness to get in and have a go and to run hard all game. A special mention for our top scorer, Zoe Collins!

SEISA Intermediate boys Basketball - Beaconhills, Pakenham - LOST: 21-39 
We played against Pakenham to try and place in the finals. By half time we were in the lead by a small amount of points, however things went off the tracks in the second half. Oakley was sent out for five fouls, Jack injured his shoulder and Kyle was absent. We tried our best but the other team were the stronger team this time. Quinn and Tyson scored well, but not enough.

SEISA Intermediate girls Softball - Beaconhills Pakenham - WIN 26-14
Gippsland Grammar girls’ softball team played a strong three innings against Beaconhills Pakenham. All 12 team members secured 2-3 runs each for the team, with Sid Churchman pitching excellently, often resulting in strikes and outs. Jane Martin, the catcher, ran a fantastic home-run and proved her great catching skills once again. The whole team batted, fielded and showcased their communication and teamwork skills and knowledge to a high extent. Well done to the team, who played a strong game of softball, with the results reflection the great work to win the game 26 to 14.
Thank you to all who helped out.

SEISA Senior girls softball - Sale WIN 22-17 
This was our strongest competition so far and the skill level was very high in both teams. After being 10 all at the bottom on the second innings, Gippsland Grammar played very well to take out the game 22 to 17. It was a fine team effort. Lillie Jago and Elani Hughes got home in each innings, with Amy Wrigglesworth and Emma Shaw making three runs each. Emily Vale fielded well on first base. A great team effort that should give the girls confidence going into the final round.

SEISA Senior girls tennis - Sale - WIN 6 sets to 2, 40 games to 12
Once again the senior girls Tennis team performed strongly to defeat their opposition 6 sets to 2; 40 games to 12. Our 3, 5, 6, 7 and 8 players did not ???? a single game. Well done to; Laura Jones, Lucy MacLachlan, Sally Deller, Emily Harrison and Sacha Sjerp. Our year 12 players; Holly Howes, Kelsey Weir and Ady Walker, performed creditably against strong opposition players. Well done to all members of the team. There is just one more round until the final, so play well against Newhaven next week to ensure a top of the ladder result.

SEISA Senior boys Tennis - Sale - WON: 7(46) – 1(18)
Under stormy skies, the senior boys tennis team put on a dominant display to produce a 7 sets to 1 victory against Beaconhills Pakenham. In the absence of our number one player, all members of the team had to step up a position and all did a great job. Well done to all players; Ben McAnulty, Darcy Beecher, Liam Emms, David Ting, Kyung Stewart, Lloyd Hodge, Anuradha Mudunna and Alex Clemens. We look forward to our final round next week against Newhaven College.

Head of Garnsey Campus

I attended the ICE, alcohol and other drugs seminar at the Baptist Church on Monday night. This event was well supported and provided some interesting information and thoughts about assisting those whose lives are so impacted by drugs. Aimed particularly at Sports Clubs, but also relevant to our School community, the value of our connection with students was apparent as a protective factor for them as they manoeuvre through an adolescence where drugs are often, but not always, a part of their social scene. I hope that, in coming months, we can share some of this information with parents and continue to provide opportunities for drug education with our students.

The Geography students have been conducting some engaging fieldtrips this week. The Year 7 students travelled to Glenmaggie Weir, The Year 8s went to Stratford and the Knob Reserve, and Year 9s visited Glenmaggie Weir followed by a visit to a dairy farm. It’s wonderful to see the students collecting data and using the real world to further their understanding of the concepts learned in classes.

At the Garnsey campus this week, we welcomed Mrs Masami Sugisaki to teach Japanese while Mrs Na Gu takes maternity and family leave. We also welcomed Mrs Jenny Roberts who will teach a Year 10 English class until further notice, and following the commencement of Mrs Kelly Warren’s maternity leave, Mrs Gerardene Caldwell will manage events until further notice.

Finally, I would like to reiterate my request for some further consideration of student safety with the drop off and pick up of students. The drop off and pick up points are at the Dawson Street gate and the Music gate, NOT in McGhee Street. I will be distributing some further information to car travellers over the next week and I hope that this will further clarify, with the help of a map, our preferred points for safe pick up and drop off of our Garnsey students.

Poppies Project
Taking inspiration from the 5000 poppies project, our students will have an opportunity next week to start making poppies for our ANZAC Day display. Between 2014 and 2018 Australia will commemorate the Anzac Centenary, marking 100 years since Australia’s involvement in the First World War. And in 2015, there will be a large number of activities commemorating 100 years since the Anzac Gallipoli landing.  The 5000 poppies project requires poppies to be submitted by 15 March which is a little early for us, but we hope that our project will also be a tribute of respect and remembrance. Students will be able to attend some lunchtime sessions if they would like to learn to knit or crochet poppies, and will make poppies in Mentor Groups, submitting for preparation for our display.

Helping Hands Projects - Casual Clothes Day for Utta Char Kalmi
At assembly this week the SRC Executive outlined their vision for the Student Representative Council. They have asked all elected Mentor Group representatives to ensure that they attend meetings to share the voice and ideas of students so that they can address the issues that students consider to be important. Additionally, they have committed to raising funds to support Utta Char Kalmi, our school in Bangladesh. Having already conducted a barbecue at the Swimming Sports, they will collect $2.00 from each student who wears casual clothes next Wednesday 11 March. Students are reminded that they are required to wear appropriate, neat casual clothes, covered shoes and to bring Sports uniform if they have Physical Education classes on that day.

Cake Stall for Relay for Life team - It is wonderful that we will have a student team in the Relay for Life to be held at the Sale Greyhounds on the weekend of 28 – 29 March. The students of 11 Dyke are organising this event and will hold a cake stall on Wednesday 11 March, when they will also launch their loose change collection, in their efforts to raise money for this worthy cause.

 

SEISA Round 3 - 5 March 2015

Gippsland Grammar Versus St. Pauls Warragul - Senior Boys Basketball
GG: 34 defeated by STP: 69
Gippsland Grammar fought with great endeavour in a very high quality match but St. Pauls won on the day 69-34. Sam Whelan lead as captain with 12 points, Will Bodman played the game of his life and added 10 points, Chris Smith and Hunter Tuckett also played well and added 5 points each. A very good team game, bad luck boys.

Senior Girls Basketball - GG: 17 defeated by STP: 30
The first 5 set out onto the court, with nerves running down their spine as the opponents approached them with a fierce look. Ruby Bennett contested well in the jump ball but unfortunately St. Pauls had the first break with 2 points on the board. The game had a tense feel to it then Grammar finally put some number on the board. Throughout the second half the girls strengthened and were able to make some clean shots. Maybe next week girls.

Senior Boys Tennis - GG 2-sets (23-games) defeated by STP 6-sets (39-games)
This week’s competition round was not the boys best, they suffered a 6-2 loss. The St. Pauls boys were in form but the Grammar boys put up a tough fight and managed to get 23 games. David Ting led the way for Grammar and should be proud of his efforts. The boys are disappointed from this week’s loss but are in high spirits for next round and will be practising hard throughout the next week. Shout out to Mr Ray who worked hard in lifting the boy’s spirits and encouraging them to do their very best.

Senior Girls Tennis - GG 6 sets (41-games) defeated STP 2 sets (23-games)
On Thursday the 5th of March, weather was sunny but strong winds were present which challenged the girls. We managed to overcome this hurdle and finish the day with a victory, 6 sets to 2. All the girls played really well, St. Pauls girls were great competition. Special shout out to Holly, Kelsey, Laura, Ady, Abbey, Lucy, Katie and Sally who made up this team of fine sportswomen. Also thanks to Mr. Ray, the girls fillin coach, they couldn’t have done it without your support and encouragement.

Senior Boys Cricket - GG: 7/123 defeated STP: 7/105
Gippsland Grammar won the toss and elected to bat, they lost 4 early wickets and were in trouble until a 70 run 6th wicket partnership between Alex Lawson (43) and Matt George (20) saw Grammar scramble to a total of 123, also some late order hitting from Justin Morgan helped achieve this score. Devon Costigan and Tim Daniels bowled well early and picked up early wickets, Jack Wrigglesworth bowled some quality overs in the middle of the innings before Alex Lawson and Louis Howard finished St. Pauls off dismissing key batsmen. Well done boys!

 

Senior Girls Softball - GG: 24 defeated STP: 11
With a full squad eager to hone their skills, today’s game was played in good spirit and the girls demonstrated confidence in developing their skills. Lillie Jago was in fine form at the pitching plate and Elani Hughes again performed well as a catcher and to hit the day’s only home run. In the field Sofia and Amy both took great catches and Emily was strong on first base. It was a great game and the girls came away with a good victory. Well done girls!

Intermediate Boys Basketball - GG: 28 defeated STP: 41

The boys were facing an uphill battle having lost many players to swimming and school camps. With no substitutions the boys showed their determination by playing strong defence against a solid team. Oakley Henry grabbed numerous rebounds over much taller players by playing physically. Jack Allman ran the offence with patience and confidence whilst Tyson Whelan scored at will. Overall, while they lost, they should be very proud of the game they played.

Intermediate Girls Basketball - GG: 12 defeated by STP: 59
St. Pauls tight defence and a couple a exceptional offensive players really put Grammar to the test this week. However, the girls did not give up and showed plenty of hustle in the key and effort in their full-court sprints. Better luck next week girls!

Intermediate Boys Tennis -GG 1-sets (19-games) defeated by STP 7-sets (49-games)
Although the score says otherwise Gippsland Grammar intermediate boys played well under the conditions. The wind was very hard to play against but Matt Gover and Quinn Bates managed to fight against it and get the team’s only win. Considering they only had 3 of their normal players the boys did quite well. Tayden and Liam Wilson played well only losing by two points on a tie break. All in all an unfortunate day, but a great effort was put in. Better luck next week!

Intermediate Girls Tennis - GG 8 sets (48-games) defeated STP 0 sets (1-games)
The intermediate girls’ team played very well, winning every set with a total score of 48 games to 1. All of the pairs played very well nearly winning every set 6-0. They would like to thank the St. Pauls girls for providing a great match and being very good sports. Well done girls!

Intermediate Boys Cricket - GG: 10/78 defeated by STP: 6/91
It was a good start for captain Tom Anderson winning his first toss and sending St. Pauls in to bat. The Warragul boys battled well for their 91 runs, best bowlers were the new recruits Sam Dunnett, Henry Anderson and Ben Burrowes all getting a wicket each. Best batter in the long chase was Rory Van Berkel with 27 which included an amazing straight six, but this effort was not enough to get the boys over the line. Better luck next week boys!

Intermediate Girls Softball - GG: 2 defeated by STP: 24
In a one sided encounter our intermediate softball team went down 24-2. Very tight pitching made scoring runs difficult with only Jane Martin and Mae Ross making it back to home base. Good teamwork in the field was not enough to secure a closer score. Better luck next week girls!
