Junior School Sport
This term, Stage 1 will be participating in the Footsteps dance programme. Footsteps specialise in fundamental dance movements and have had a long-standing relationship with TIGS. Students have enjoyed their first lesson in Week 1 and are looking forward to participating in the remainder of the programme.
Stage 2 students will be working on developing their athletics skills throughout the term, leading up to the Junior School Athletics Carnival in Week 9. Teachers will be coaching students in throwing, jumping and running activities.
Our Stage 3 students have the opportunity to participate in an interschool challenge against Cedars Christian College in the sports of T-Ball and Basketball. The competitions will occur during weeks 5, 6 and 7, with training and internal competitions occurring during the other weeks.
Senior School Sport
During Monday afternoon Sport, Year 7 will be instructed by local development coaches in AFL and Rugby throughout the term. Year 8 will be enjoying participating in Tennis and Hockey beginning in Week 3.
Students in Years 9 and 10 have been given options again in Term 2, with students choosing to participate in either Archery, Basketball, Indoor Sports, SAVVY fitness or 360 Skate during their Friday period 5 and 6 lessons. Students are excited to be given the opportunity to choose their sport and make the most of their sport time.
Although moving into Cross Country and Athletics this term, our talented Swimmers (Riley Baird, Bridie De Lutiis, Jaimie De Lutiis, Nate Gardiner, Katie Healey, Eva Katkjaer, William MacKay, Ella McIlwraith and Claire Spicknall) continued in the representative Swimming pathway by competing at CIS during Week 2.
Our Senior Girls Tennis team of Molly Buikstra, Yana Chibanda, Victoria Di Martino, Maya Field and Bianca Sorrentino won the NASSA Tennis Championship and will be representing the School and NASSA at the AICES Tennis championships this term.
