Jump Off Day

As in previous years, Junior School registered to be a part of the Heart Foundation’s Jump Rope for Heart program for 2017. The culmination for this year’s program was a Jump Off day which was held on Monday 7 August. Students from Years 3 - 6 participated in a rotation of skipping skills including a ‘Relay Challenge,’ which required a class to complete as many running skips as possible in 4 minutes. Thank you to the Northside community for your continued support of this program.

Prep – 2 Sports Carnival

On Thursday 20 July, students from Prep to Year Two participated in their annual Sports Carnival on the College Oval. Throughout the morning students competed in sprint races, ball games and a fun run. Even the toddlers and parents joined in with the fun as they participated in novelty races. Congratulations to students in Wesley House, which took home the House Shield for 2017.
