Junior School Sport Update


 Junior School Cross Country Carnival

Anticipation levels were high as Junior School students competed in their annual cross country carnival on Tuesday, 15 March at Teralba Park, Mitchelton. This year saw a change in course with students tackling ‘Heartbreak Hill’ early on in their race. Congratulations to students in Wesley House who edged out Elliot House for the 2016 title. Congratulations to the race winners and also to all students who will be representing the school at upcoming District, CSSA and ICS Carnivals.

 Interschool Sport Gala Days

During Term 2, students in Years 5 and 6 will participate in interschool sport gala days held over three Fridays. Northside has entered teams into Soccer, Netball, AFL and Basketball competitions. This is a great chance for students to represent the College in our local community and demonstrate our sport values of encouragement and sportsmanship.

Junior School Instrumental Music

Orch centre

The end of Term 1 brought the first performances for the year for the band and string students in the Junior School. The String Ensemble and Concert Band joined forces to form an orchestra to perform on the final assembly. They gave a rousing rendition of ‘See, The Conquering Hero Comes,’ the well-known hymn tune written by Handel.

On the final day of term, the Year 4 students in the Class Instrumental Music Program, who have only had six lessons on their instruments, gave their first performance to their peers. The students performed in their ensembles and displayed the results of their hard work through this first term of lessons. In Term 2, they will perform as part of an evening concert for their parents and friends.

Congratulations to all of the students involved in these events.  We look forward to another great term of music-making in Term 2.
