HRIS 3 / 4 Basketball Gala Day
On Wednesday, 5 June a bus, filled with cheerful Year 3 & 4 basketballers, headed north to Newcastle Basketball Stadium at Broadmeadow. Both girls and boys teams played with energy, enthusiasm and sportsmanship for the duration of the day. Many of the students had never played the game before but acquitted themselves well, demonstrating the skills they had learnt in training and improving with each game. Both teams finished third after their pool games but went on to win their final two games and finish 7th overall. Thanks to the parents who came out to support the team, we appreciate your time and efforts. Big thanks to Mr Cantor and Mr Lawson for coaching and managing the teams.
Tuesday Sport 3-6 – Term 3
3 – 6 School sport choices have gone live for Term 3 (notes went home last week). Please make sure a sport has been chosen for Term 3. Any questions, please see Mr Cantor.
Tuesday Sports Uniform – Reminder…
Just a reminder that full sports uniform must be worn on Tuesdays for sport i.e. hat, white sport shirt, white / coloured joggers (no fluro colours), school sport shorts and socks. It is strongly advisable to have a water bottle as well.
HRIS / CIS Representation (5/6 only)
Once again, there are many opportunities for our Year 5/6 boys and girls to represent HRIS or CIS. Students who already compete at a representative level are encouraged to trial for that particular sport. A term timetable is placed in the JS Sports noticeboard with upcoming events and mentioned at Monday morning assemblies. Please also check regularly the following websites for further information:
Please note, if your child is selected for a HRIS team (such as X Country, swimming, etc.), then they can purchase a polo HRIS shirt from the school. They are $33 each. Please see Mr Summers for more details.
Please note: new procedures when purchasing HRIS Merchandise:
Competitors must arrive at the venue wearing either a HRIS polo shirt OR long sleeve tee, along with school sport shorts/tracksuit. ALL HRIS representatives are to present to the relevant HRIS Manager in one of these items. HRIS Polo shirts & long sleeve tee, along with other HRIS apparel, are available for purchase through the HRIS online store. HRIS is excited to announce that we have teamed up with Classic Sportswear are now offering a growing range of merchandise that only HRIS sport representatives can access. Optional items include a HRIS Hoodie and cap. The cap is the only cap that can be worn whilst representing HRIS in sports such as Softball and Touch Football, but can also be purchased by representatives in other HRIS sports. Once your order has been finalized, the items will be sent directly to you within a few days. Purchases can be made via the following link:
NB – some Schools may still have stock of the HRIS student Polo. Please check with your School prior to ordering the Polo online as you might get it cheaper from your School.
Competitors will be issued with a running singlet on the day that will attract a hire fee. (This will be billed to your school following the event).
Coming up in Term 3:
7th August - 5-6 Oz Tag Gala Day
13th August – 3-4 Oz Tag Gala Day
