Primary Sports Highlights
Term 1 has been an action packed term with many different sport opportunities available to students. The Year 3 – Year 6 Swimming Carnival was held on 24th February, while the Saturday morning IPSHA sport program began on 11th February for Basketball, Girls’ Football and Softball. Together with weekly PE lessons and Stage Sport students have participated in a range of physical activities. According to Mr Ian Cornick, Arden’s PE Teacher/Sport Coordinator: “At Arden we encourage students to develop a love for sport and physical activity for enjoyment and to be involved in teams and carnivals to develop friendships, learn sportsmanship and to use their God given talents.”
The Primary Swimming Carnival was a wonderful event with a very high level of participation across all age groups, close competition with many exciting finishes and passionate and enthusiastic House spirit.
Students from Year 3 – Year 6 then competed at the IPHSA swimming carnival against swimmers from 50 schools. Everyone competed well and did their best, with many achieving personal best times. Regan Garufi was subsequently selected into the IPSHA team to compete at the NSWCIS Primary Swimming Championships and has now been selected into the CIS team to compete at the NSWPSSA Championships in the 200m Individual Medley following her recent performance in this event at the IPSHA carnival. This is an outstanding achievement.
