Basketball and Miniball Score bench Rosters  - there will be score bench rosters emailed tomorrow for basketball and miniball families so if your team is on score bench duty, please ensure you turn up to do your duty otherwise the competition points do not count for your child's game.  The roster ensures all families do their part to help the team and it is not left to one or two families to do it each week. If your family is down to do a duty on a particular date and our school is not on duty, that is a bonus for that family as the roster goes from week to week.
