Genesis@Home Daily Sport
Well done to all students for taking part in the Genesis@Home Daily Sport sessions. This program was designed to allow students regular opportunities, at home, to keep fit, and balance school work and physical activity. It was also an initiative to challenge students physically and support their mental health during the challenging season of COVID-19 restrictions.
The response from students was positive and it was great to hear stories from students who developed their fitness and engaged their families in the workouts. A special thank you to the Genesis Sports and Aquatics staff (in particular Logan Maguire and the Cert III Fitness students Joel, Jack and Lachlan for designing the sessions.
Cross Country@Home Met North 2020
This term, where representative sport was suspended, Cross Country Met North designed a virtual cross country competition for schools, where students could complete a course at home and upload their results via an APP. There were set distances for each age group with 95 schools in the region taking part. Well done to Harrison Barr for coming in 1st place in the Met North Region.
Genesis students performed very well in the competition and the results are as follows:
Term 3 Sport
Next term, with the gradual phasing in of Interschool competition, the focus in the Secondary sport for Years 7-11 will be on skill and team development as well as laying a foundation for our sporting teams to be ready for the 2021 season. A number of focus sports have been identified where there will be high level coaches conducting sessions. We look forward to working with sporting associations, such as the Qld Reds to offer these development sessions. Students have been issued with a sport selection survey and the following sports will be on offer.
Year 12 students will take part in the Principal’s cup tournament, competing in an inter–house sporting competition with a different sport each week.
BOSL Netball, Soccer (Year 7/8 boys) and Volleyball will be going ahead and students have been notified via the sport survey, if they wish to trial for these teams.
Zone/District Representative Sport Reboot
A number of representative sports will be rebooted next term in the Pine Rivers District and Met North Region. The websites have been updated with a calendar for parents, and students will be notified via the morning notices next term. Please contact me either by phone on 3882 9014 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any enquiries.
Yours in Christ,
