An amazing effort for the first Lacrosse carnival. Today we took 39 year 5/6 students to compete at West Beach playing fields.
An incredible effort from the students in hot conditions, the students represented themselves admirably. The skills continued to improve throughout the day and there were some fantastic team results.
Reports were that all the teams experienced success on multiple occasions with at least 1 team going undefeated. I loved hearing so many students talk about how much they enjoyed themselves and that they were surprised how fun Lacrosse was. Thats what we are all about at HFCS, having growth mindsets and trying new things.
Fantastic effort by all involved and special thanks to Brooke and Antonia for volunteering. These carnivals cannot happen without your support.


Another amazing day out today representing Holy Family for the Tball carnival at Ridley reserve. We took 60 students from Years 3-5. We had two girls teams and 3 boys teams, all experiencing success in their own ways. Special thanks to Jasmin, India, Bianca and Allanah. These carnivals cant run without your support.

We decided to end the carnival a little earlier due to the heat but the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves for the time that they were there.

Tball is a game that everyone is able to be involved in some way and the students had plenty of opportunities to demonstrate what they were capable of. Some amazing hitting, some excellent catches and some very smart plays allowed our teams to experience success.

What was amazing to see was the team spirit and the extra encouragement of some students who have never been to a school sporting carnival before. Was amazing to witness.

Well done everyone involved.

Knockout Netball

BLOG POST – Written by Yshi and Osi

Friday (Week 4) , ten year 6 girls were set for Golden Grove for the SAPSASA Netball Knockouts.

It was many of the girl’s first try at competitive netball, so it was quite new to them. Most teams had a selection of year 7s, so we were given the disadvantage from the start.

We started strong with a win, and continued on to finish equal second in our division of 6 teams, with 5 wins and 2 losses. The team improved throughout the day, winning to a team we originally lost to, as we had to play some schools twice.

It was an enjoyable experience, and we definitely had lots of fun with our friends and represented the school well. We couldn’t have gone without our fantastic umpire, Mrs. Reed, and of course, Mrs. Cooymans.

Well done to all of the girls of came out for their fantastic effort.

Knockout Soccer

Blog update

The knockout soccer team was a much anticipated carnival for soccer enthusiasts at HFCS. We had so much interest we had to hold numerous trials to select a squad. Well done to all students who trialled and well done to the students who were selected.

We have participated in this carnival for numerous years and have always had some success. This year was no different with HFCS taking out the first round robin carnival at Ardtonish.
Ardornish 8-0 win
St Augustines 4-1 win
Round two took us to St Columba.
A galant effort by the boys today playing 3 games against some tough competition. It must be mentioned that all schools had year 7s to choose from which gave them an advantage from the start.
The boys were brave and showed some fantastic passages of play during the day.
St Columba 5-1 loss
Greenwith 1-0 win
Gleeson 6-2 loss
Some stand out performances but both me and Nick felt that Carlo demonstrated true Holy Family spirit. The flexibility to play out of his normal position and give his absolute best, and then off the field ensuring all the strips were packed away properly in the kit bag. Fantastic effort!!

AFL Football

Today students ventured to Ridley reserve for the Catholic schools outer northern football carnival.

Another fantastic carnival with outstanding efforts from our students. Once again they represented the school admirably and the performance followed. We took 43 students today ranging from years 4-6 both girls and boys. A packed schedule saw the teams play 5 or 6 games of modified footy.

This was a lot of students first taste of footy and it’s fair to say they loved it. After the first game, you could see the confidence grow and the skills continued to improve during the day. Many thanks to India, Nina and Dom who helped out on the day and also the other parents who came along to support.

Well done footballers!!

Soccer Carnival

30th July – Blog catchup
Tuesday the 30th saw the long awaited rescheduled soccer carnival. This carnival was meant to be played over a term ago but was postponed due to poor weather. Today the weather was much better and the students experienced a fantastic carnival planned by our northern cluster of catholic schools. Our first year part of the cluster, it has allowed us to take many more students to sports they may not be able to attend due to numbers.
This carnival gave an amazing opportunity for students succeed outside the classroom and 65 students both boys and girls to participated, some for the first time ever playing soccer.
The abilities were mixed across teams and the teamwork and encouragement was amazing to see. We also took 18 year 4 students who thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities to participate in a carnival.
So many fantastic performances, all students should be congratulated.
Special thanks to the amazing help from Elyse, Andy, Nick and Hayley. Also Nina and Sandra (parent helpers), this allowed the day to run smoothly.
