​Bayside District Swimming Trials

Congratulations to all our swimmers who did themselves and the SJV community proud when they competed at the Bayside District Swimming Trials last Thursday. With the large majority performing personal best times, they ‘held their own’ in what is a highly recognised field of competitors. Special congratulations go to Charli , who was selected to represent the district at the Metropolitan East Trials in the 50m Freestyle event. Well done, everyone!


Bayside Catholic Swimming Carnival

Nominations have being finalised for the Bayside Catholic Swimming Carnival scheduled for Friday 13 March (Week 7) at the Cleveland Aquatic Centre. The information pack has now gone out to families. I ask for parental support in ensuring that any nominated competitors who do not wish to attend, to send responses as soon as possible, so that their events can be re-allocated to other swimmers. Importantly also, is for parents to ensure they have indicated whether competitors are RETURNING to the school via BUS. This will ensure we do not incur extra expense with the ordering of a bus or buses for the return journey.

SJV Inter-House Cross-Country Competition 2020 (Year 2 – Year 6)

Thank you to all those families who have forwarded permission for students to attend the SJV Inter-House Cross-Country Carnival scheduled for Tuesday 17 March 2020 at Wynnum (Muddies Cricket Ground). As noted in the information letter, all students will be transported to and from the venue by bus. Sincere thanks also to those parents who have volunteered their assistance as officials and setting/packing-up on the day. This is a very ‘labour intensive’ event, especially as a large amount of equipment (for sun protection particularly and setting-up the course) is required to run it successfully. The officials’ document will be posted on the parent portal by the end of this week. All families are reminded that there is no seating available, so please BYO chair.
