Regional Champs

Yesterday, our boy’s football team won the Regional School Sport Victoria (SSV) AFL competition. This is an incredible performance as they now are down to the last eight schools in the State which will be held on Wednesday 22 August. This is the furthest a school team from Park Ridge has progressed in the SSV competition in my time as Principal of our school. The scores on the day were;

Game 1  vs Templestowe PS 39 – 12

Game 2 vs Chatham PS 42 – 2

Game 3 vs Ferny creek PS  55 – 0

Grand Final vs St Peter JE  25 – 7

Fun fact: this team is on a 17-0 winning streak! Mr Davey and the boys should be extremely proud of their efforts to get this far in the competition. A special thank you to all the parents and carers who transported the students and who came along to support the team.

Girls’ Soccer

Last week, our girls’ soccer team participated in the Divisional SSV competition at JW James Reserve in Ferntree Gully. In extremely windy conditions the girls battled hard all day, winning two games 4-0 and drawing one game 1-1. This result allowed them to play off in the finals. Unfortunately Waverley Christian College were too strong on the day winning 4-2. The girls showed the true Park Ridge spirit of giving their best, enjoying the competition and playing fairly. Again, this is a great achievement for our school.
