Year 5/6 Softball

Year 5/6 Softball

On Monday 17th October, two teams of students from year 5/6 represented HT at softball in the Knox Division Championships at Gilbert Park. As you can imagine the competition was very strong when competing against all the other district winners but we held our own winning two of the three games that we played. Unfortunately, we just missed out on making it to the regional championships where just missed out on percentage and finishing third overall.

Overall, we all had lots of fun and represented HT with great pride and displayed great sportsmanship throughout the day. Thanks to Mr. D for helping to train us throughout the last couple of months and for helping us to participate in the day.

3/4 Regional Hoop Time Championships

3/4 Regional Hoop Time Championships

On Wednesday the 19th of October, two teams of 3/4 students were chosen to participate in the Regional All Star Hoop Time Championships at the State Basketball Centre. This was after our Future Star team also played in the Future Star Competition  a week prior. Our All Star boys team won all their matches including the grand final against Monbulk Primary. Our All Star girls team also won all their games including a close win in the grand final against Scoresby Primary where they got the job done in the final few minutes.  Our Future Star team also was successful in their grand final which is an amazing result for HT where our All Star Boys, Girls and Future Star teams made it through to the State Hoop Time Championships later on this term.

Well done to our 3/4 students and not only making it through to the State Championships but also using the TORCH values throughout the day as they represented HT. We can’t wait to hear what happens in a few weeks time.

On Wednesday 24th of August and Tuesday 6th of September, the students from Years 5 and 6 students represented HT and St. Mary’s at tennis at Mountain Gate.

The students chosen to play tennis were divided up into 2 boys teams, Team A and Team B, as well as one girls team. Team A consisted of mainly Year 6 boys whilst Team B consisted of mainly Year 5 boys. The girls team consisted of both students from Years 5 and 6.

Some of the schools that we played against included Boronia K-12, Kent Park, Wattleview, St Judes and Scoresby. When Team A was playing games on court Team B would be cheering, counting the team’s points or practising and getting ready for their upcoming game. Then Team A and Team B would swap and it was great to receive encouragement throughout the day. Everyone was very enthusiastic even when the other schools were winning.

Overall, it was a very successful and well organised day with all teams winning some games. Well done to all students for their great behaviour and for representing our school with such great sportsmanship.

Interschool Sports – Cricket

On Wednesday August 24th and Tuesday 6th September the years 5’s and 6’s represented Holy Trinity and St. Mary’s at Interschool Cricket. The other schools that we played against included Wattleview, Scoresby, St Judes, Kent Park and Bayswater West and all games were played at HV Jones Reserve at Mountain Gate. We were divided into two team with team A being an all boys team and team B being a mixed team.

We were the first school to arrive at the ground so we had some time to practise our bowling and batting skills. Once all the schools arrived we ate some food and went to our assigned cricket pitches to play our games. Each school had an A and B team and for the first day the A teams played against the B teams.

On day 1 our A team was ‘on fire’ and won all their games while our B team played well but missed out on achieving any victories. However, on day 2 all the B teams played against one another and the A teams played the other A teams from the other schools. The B team showed how much they had improved throughout the competition by winning half of their games and once again our A team won all of their games meaning they were they were the champions of the entire tournament. As Division champion our A team will play against the winners of other Divisions at the cricket District Championship next term.

Overall, it was a highly successful two days for our cricket teams and they represented our school using the same TORCH values that they use at school.

5/6 Hoop Time

5/6 Hoop Time

On Friday the 12th of August,  the 5/6’s went to Dandenong Stadium to represent Holy Trinity at the Hoop Time competition. During the day each team played at least four games and many won enough games to qualify for finals. Our All Star girls team made to the grand final but sadly they just lost by 2 points in overtime. This meant that they were able to make it through to the next level which is a fantastic achievement. The All Star boys made it to the finals as well but they lost in the semis against Kent Park.

Each of our Hoop Time teams had at least a win during the day and they were very excited about it. Everyone had a great time and represented our school with the usual pride in the Hoop Trinity uniform.

NBL Players Come to HT!

NBL Players Come to HT!

On Wednesday the 10th of August, players from the South East Melbourne Phoenix NBL club came to HT. This visit was part of an RRRR incursion for the 5/6 students about managing emotions and feelings. The Phoenix players included Dane Pineau, Ryan Broekoff and Kyle Adnam who came to HT to talk to us about how they deal with the stresses of being professional basketballers as well as taking some time to play games with us on the basketball court. One of the highlights of the visit was that students could bring items for the players to sign. These items have become extra special now that they are autographed by famous NBL players and I’m sure the students will treasure forever.

Here are some photos from our recent NBL visit.
