May Minutes Marathon

Over the month of May, MSJ held its first May Minutes Marathon, where Houses competed against each other to see who could gain the most active ‘May Minutes’ during remote learning.

Congratulations to Penola House, who amassed an incredible total of 2870 minutes and congratulations to the overall winner Deanne Caputo.

A special ‘shoutout’ to the overall winners for each year level, listed below, and the weekly winners who won a $10 canteen voucher to use in Term 3:

Lauren Price (Year 7), Bridget Lloyd (Year 8), Deanna Caputo (Year 9), Elise McCallum (Year 10), Marizabel Saliba & Allison Webster (Year 11), and Penny Parker & Sarah Fjeldstad (Year 12).

SCSA Running & 'Show Us Your Skills' Competitions

In Term 2, SCSA also created two new competitions for students to participate in whilst at home.

The first competition held was the High Performance Running Competition, where Ruby Sommerville (Year 12) won the title of SCSA High Performance 5km Senior Champion (20.21), as well as being the Silver medalist (12.56) in the Senior 3km event.

The second competition held by SCSA was the “Show Us Your Skills” competition, where Kate Lavers (Year 9) won for her hockey skill entry.

Huge congratulations girls, and way to represent your school!

Olympics Day

On Tuesday 23 June, MSJ held its own Olympic Day where Houses and teachers competed against each other in multiple relays to commemorate the rescheduling of the 2020 Summer Olympic Games that were scheduled for Tokyo.

Due to time constraints, the races were between Year 12 students, and later staff.

In the first Year 12 relay, Providence beat McCormack and Solomon, taking them into the next round, and in the second relay, Kincumber reigned victorious against Cameron and Penola.

Both Kincumber and Providence then went onto the Final relay event, which was against the two teacher teams, comprising Mr. Vella, Mr. Lavery, Mr. Tresize, Mr. Leonard, Mr. Zarkos, Mr. Robinson, Ms. Bowring, Ms. Steward and a special guest appearance by Mrs De Bono.

The race was tight right to the end, with Kincumber coming out on top!

Congratulations to the Kincumber relay team for being the winners on a fun day, and all students for competing and coming out to watch and be part of the House fun!

Overall, it was a successful Term 2 for sport and wellbeing at MSJ , despite the COVID restrictions, as we created new events to keep the students active and connected, and we look forward to everyone participating in next term’s activities!
