Swimming Squad 2020

Morning all,

Some confusion has risen about swimming training this week. A squad was going to be selected last week but due to no Holy Family students participating in the SAPSASA carnival (held this Friday) we have held off.

All students that have been attending trials (Years 3-6) or any other perspective students that can swim 25m (Using freestyle, backstroke, breast stroke or butterfly) are encouraged to attend trials tomorrow at The Parafield Gardens Swim School (7:30am)

Thanks everyone



Welcome Back to 2020

The holidays are well and truly over and swimming trials have started the sport year off for 2020. After the final trial tomorrow we will select a squad of students to represent Holy Family at the SACPSSA swimming carnival.

Swimming Carnival: This carnival will be held at Magill University Pools from 1pm -3pm on the 11th of March.

Other carnivals for this term include:

T20 Blast Cricket Carnival: This carnival will be held at Para Hills Cricket Club from 9am-3pm on the 16th of March.

Y3/4 Soccer Carnival: This carnival will be held at Mofflin Reserve from 9am-3pm on the 19th of March.

Holy Family Sports Day: All students will be involved in our annual sports day. It will be held at Holy Family again this year on the 3rd of April.

As we move to digital consent forms please take note of the return dates as from this date the forms will no longer be accessible via the QKR app.

We look forward to a fantastic year of sport.

Sports Presentation Assembly

Morning all,

This Friday we will be acknowledging all of the students that participated in sporting carnivals in 2019. We have had a large increase in participation this year with students ranging from Year 3 to 6.

We will be rewarding students for fantastic achievements in sport with certificates and medals. We will also present a MVP medal to students who have excelled in numerous sporting carnivals.

We welcome families who can make it down to support their children as many of you parents have supported these children through volunteering their time to supervise at carnivals and also covering carnival fees to pay for buses.

We look forward to seeing you all Friday 9am.


Year 2 Come and Try Carnival

We couldn’t have had asked for a better opportunity for all of our Year 2s to experience their first sporting carnival.
Last Wednesday we took all four Year 2 classes to Park 25 in the city for a Come and Try day for national PE week. Students had the opportunity to try a range of activities over 4 different sessions. Some of the sports on offer were cricket, rugby league and union, lacrosse, taekwondo, golf, tennis, ultimate frisbee and a range of student leader activities.
All the students had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity represent the school in an external event. Special thanks to Rita, Jo, Jake and Paul for collecting consent forms and organising the 10 parents that come along to help us.
Fantastic group effort by all!
Once again thanks to all the parents who come along to support us, this wouldn’t be able to happen without your support.


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.
