Sadly there is no more netball for the players in Yrs 1-6 as Covid finished your season early. The Rebels and Gold team still play this Saturday. If it is raining on Saturday, any games that are played for first and second will be played at St Kevin's gymnasium so this means that both St Joseph's teams will not be playing.
8.30 am - Rebels v Athletic Mini Maroon on court 1
9.30 am - Gold v Kurow on court 1
There is a box of rugby boots to give away outside the uniform shop. Please help yourself.

We have had a couple of extra players interested in playing touch in the Yr 1/2/3 team, is there a coach who will be willing to look after the second team? Please let Mrs Brien know asap. Thanks.

Yr 8 v Staff Netball Game
What an exciting game of netball it was on Tuesday afternoon when the staff played the Yr 8 students in their annual game. This year we changed the rules for the Yr 8 students so every student could participate in the game and be part of it. The game was closely contested all the way through and ended up in a draw so we had to play another 2 more minutes to see if there was a winner. Right at the very end, the students shot the winning goal which ended the game with a euphoric display of cheers from all the students. The game was played in very good spirt and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the game. Well done Yr 8 students for their win but look out next year!!
