Make sure you and your parents are in attendance at the
2019 Penrhos Student Leadership Experience
Parent Information Evening
Calling all IGSSA players currently in Year 8, 9 and 10!
Make sure you and your parents attend the information evening on Wednesday night in the Rixon Theatre – full tour details, costings and initial itinerary details for this once in a lifetime touring opportunity will be shared with all those in attendance.
An Expression of Interest form will be handed out on Wednesday night, and will be due for return shortly thereafter, for all those interested in being part of this 2019 opportunity. I know you will be blown away by this sports leadership experience, and the too many to mention ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunities the girls will be exposed to!
I look forward to sharing further details with you on Wednesday, and answering any questions you may have, regarding this amazing tour!
With just a few days to go until the conclusion of our 2018 Athletics season, we would like to wish all our competitors every personal success and improvement, as they represent the College in battle next week.
I would like to personally thank Mr Teo, Ms Poetschka and all our coaches for their tireless efforts in preparing the squad. Despite the numerous injuries and unfortunate setbacks that often affect large teams in preparation, it has been exciting to see so many new members join our Athletics squad this year, their dedication to training, and the constant improvements and personal bests that are being noted every week.
We wish the best for every competitor in setting a new personal best next week at the IGSSA Carnival!
For squad members – do not forget that today (Friday 7 September) is the final opportunity for you to purchase tickets to the Squad Breakfast and Dinner functions, by using the following booking link: www.penrhos.wa.edu.au/book-tickets
And for those squad members still wishing to purchase sprint shoes for Tuesday, your last chance to secure shoes is Monday – make sure you contact Ms Poetschka over the weekend via email on firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your shoes.
Following three squad selection tournaments in September and October last year and then two team selection weekends in August this year, the WA State polocrosse teams have been announced and Jane McGuire has been selected to play in the Junior Girls side. She will compete in the Swan Valley Australian National Polocrosse Championships from 1-7 October 2018 at the State Equestrian Centre, Brigadoon.
I would love to share with you a little news about our Head Athletics Coach, Bryce Teo... More than 20 competitors took part in the 2018 Live Lighter Mullewa Gift, held at the 85th Mullewa Agricultural Show on August 25.
The running event, which started in 1926, is the highest value athletics event on the WA regional calendar, boasting a total prize pool of $5000. Bryce took out the 120m gift, crossing the line in 12.113 seconds.
Congratulations Mr Teo!
