Year 6 Winter Round Robin

Recently, our Year 6 students competed in their Winter Round Robin against other schools in our district in their given sport of Football, Soccer, Teeball, Netball and Volleyball. Students have been training in their teams during their weekly year level sport sessions in preparation for the tournament, with a number of Year 5 students also getting a chance to play as fill ins. As expected, students represented Park Ridge in outstanding fashion, displaying values of sportsmanship, teamwork and kindness to their team mates and opponents. Congratulations to the boys Football and Teeball teams who went undefeated to win the Grand Final. Well done also to our girls Soccer team who lost the grand final in a penalty shoot-out, as well as our girls Volleyball who also came runners up.

District Hoop Time

Last Friday, we took 15 basketball teams to represent Park Ridge at the Rowville District Junior Hoop Time Tournament at Dandenong Basketball Stadium. 115 students chose to participate in the Hoop Time program this year, it is great to see this number growing each year. In order to manage such a large number, we require a number of parent helpers to coach and score for teams and this year the parent community did not disappoint, so thank you to all our volunteers.
