MIDDLE SCHOOL SPORT UPDATE

Welcome back to an event-packed term of sport. We have resumed Winter Sport until the conclusion of Week 4. From Weeks 5 - 8 there will be voluntary Athletics training available to the Year 6 and 7 cohorts leading up the Inter-House (29 Aug) and Inter School (12 & 13 Sep) Carnivals. Boys will not be required to attend training after Week 4 until Spring term and will be accommodated in activities during their allocated sport fixture times. Details of this will come out shortly.

Last term Scotch College hosted the 2013 JPSSA Inter School Cross Country Event on the school campus and Scotch finished a credible 3rd place. In the Year 6 division, the boys won their event with Luca Fry (6C) winning the race.

As a result the following boys have been selected to compete in the State School Cross Country Championships held on Tuesday 13 August at UWA Sports Park:

Year 6: Luca Fry, Jesse McDonald, Matthew Moore, Jacob Jones, Benji Steinberg (Reserve - Cormac Taylor)

Year 7: Cooper Lindsay, Arthur Payne, Connor Enslin, Daniel Walker, Laine Mulvay (Reserve - Matthew Murphy)

Fitness Training: Fitness training is still available for all MS boys on Mondays (3:30-4pm) and Thursday mornings (7:15-8am) at the Gooch Pavillion.

Running Club: Running club resumes training on Monday and Thursday morning at 7:30am.

JPSSA Bring a Family Member Sport Day

On Thursday 8 August we have a Bring a Family Member Sport afternoon for our Year 6 boys. It is the chance for parents to come and mix it with their sons on the sporting field. Relive past glories and regild reputations. I hope you can make it, your sons particularly enjoy this day. We will supply the ice.
