On the second last week of Term 1, Year 4 to 6 students took part in a Friendly House Netball Competition. For a whole week, students came out to the Junior Tennis Courts to play two 10 minute games in their houses in a round robin. The House Captains were ably assisted by netball players in their house to coach the players and Kelsey Paterson umpired most of the games.
This was a fun opportunity for girls across year levels to play one another and for me to promote the sport of Netball. Being the organiser of the event, I was able to support other students with a varying range of skills. I was even able to play a few games to substitute and fill in for the teams who are short on players.
It was great to see so many girls come out to enjoy a game of netball and for me to see just how many Tintern girls share my passion for netball. I saw many people particularly the Year 4 girls give their very best.
Congratulations to Cross House for winning the tournament and thank you to all of you who came to play.
