Year 9/10 Football – Pinjarra

The Year 9 and 10 Specialist Football classes travelled to Pinjarra on Thursday 5 November to compete against Pinjarra Senior High School.

Warwick took control of the game from early on, leading our hosts by 38 points at the first change.

Warwick continued to find avenues to goal for the remainder of the game and ran out comfortable 100 point winners.

There were many outstanding individual contributions, however the most pleasing aspect of the performance was the team’s display of quick hands around the contest.

Year 9 Netball Southwest Tour

The Year 9 class have completed another great tour. After covering 906 km in 4 days and visiting 8 schools, it’s safe to stay that the Year 9 Netball girls would have slept well for the next few days.

The girls were kept very busy cooking, completing team duties, playing netball and running coaching clinics for primary school students.

The tour took the team through Woodbridge, Rockingham, Bridgetown, Manjimup, Kojonup, Wagin and Narrogin.

One of my favourite moments on the tour is when our students get the opportunity to experience coaching younger students, and learn how sometimes you may need to repeat an instruction a few times until you’re heard! Coaching 43 Year 3/4 students definitely tested their instructional skills! But they rose to the challenge and delivered a great coaching clinic!

The team have held the Narrogin/Warwick Cup for the 7th year in a row, but this time only by just 2 goals! A great team effort, with everyone getting on court and playing their roles for the team.

Thank you to the Miss Emily Sainty, Miss Meg McLearie and Miss Rachel Hopkins. The girls and I appreciate you leaving all your responsibilities and family back in Perth to come and help conduct this tour!

The Football Challenge Cup

The highlight of the Specialist Football Program calendar, The Challenge Cup, was held in Week 2 on Friday 23 October.

Students in Years 8 to 10 competed against each other in a round robin format, while teams and games were coached and umpired by Year 11 and Year 12 students.

There were a series of close games all day, with the Grand Final being claimed by The Missiles who prevailed over The All Stars by 3 points.

Well done to all students on the day for their behaviour and efficient clean up, with special mention to Bas Claite, James Cuthbertson and Jacques Fabre for their early morning efforts in setting up for the day.

Interschool Athletics Carnival 2020

Warwick finished in seventh place at the Interschool C Division Athletics Carnival this year; and Team Warwick again claimed the Meritorious Award, presented to the top achieving school on the day, based on total school population. Finishing seventh unfortunately pushes us back to D Division for 2021 however the Health and Physical Education Department are confident that we will back to C Division and maintain our position in the years ahead.

There were many outstanding individual performances, but it was the contributions and commitment of all team members who did their best in any event in which they participated, that made the school very proud.

Special congratulations to Jayden Peak Year 11 Champion Boy and Summah McRae Year 7 Champion Girl. The following students were announced as third overall champions; Hayden Wallace Year 11 and Honey Harrington Year 8, who also deserve congratulations for their outstanding effort on the day.

We would also like to make special mention to a number of students who competed in more than four events, some of which they were not initially selected for but still competed in the place of another team member, due to injury or absence.
