The students in Prep to Year 4 are very excited at the moment because this Friday they will all be starting our school swimming program at Swimworld Aquatic Centre in Glen Waverley. Each Friday in term one the Prep to Year 4 students will dressed in their PE uniform (students wear their swimming costumes underneath their uniform) and they will bring everything they will need to be able to swim including their goggles, towel and a bag to carry their wet clothes in afterwards.

Each year level has a set time to catch the bus from school, participate in their swimming lesson and then catch the bus back to school after the lesson. The first students to leave are the year 4s who will depart school at about 9.10 am and the final students (Preps) will return to school at about 1.15 pm.

I spoke to a couple of year three students about their thoughts with the upcoming swimming  lessons and they said that they will looking forward to practising how to dive, learning the different strokes such as freestyle and backstroke and also all the fun safety activities you do such as treading water with extra clothes on. 

We will keep you posted with our swimming lessons over the next few weeks.

At the end of last term (Wednesday 26th June) a 5/6 boys and girls team represented Holy Trinity Interschool Sports for soccer. Both teams played extremely well with the boys making it through to the Division playoffs after winning all of our games. In the first game the HT boys played against Knox Park and after a tight early contest we won reasonably comfortably keeping them at 0. In our second game we played St. Judes and despite being 0 to 3 down at one stage we were able to achieve a remarkable comeback and win 4-3. In our final game the HT boys played against Scoresby and again we were able to win by a comfortable margin ensuring that we made it through to the Division championships.

The HT girls also played very well winning their first game against Knox Park and second game against St. Jude’s and in a close game they went down to Scoresby in their final game. This was a great achievement considering how many of our girls played their first competitive games on this day.

Overall, both HT soccer teams did themselves and our school proud with their performance and the way they represented our school on this day. Well done HT!!!!
