Term 2 continues to be a busy term for Sapsasa events and clinics.
Southern Heights Sapsasa District Athletics Carnival
Thursday of Week 1 saw 43 Craigburn students participate in various events at Santos Stadium as part of the Southern Heights District Athletics carnival. Students competed in the rain and supported each other with lots of cheering from the cover of the stands. Thank you to our parent helpers Jenny and Tarnya for assisting throughout the day with marshalling and supervision of students. We are still awaiting confirmation of which students have been selected into the Southern Heights athletics team to compete at state day on 21st May, but it is looking positive for six of our students.
Individual results from the day:
100m Finals – Reed N 1st, Scarlett P 3rd
200m Finals – Reed N 2nd, Alyssa M 4th
800m – Hugh N 2nd, Coby H 3rd, Alyssa M 4th, Matilda S 4th
Long Jump – Hugh N 1st
Discus – Karl K 1st, Eliza W 4th

Southern Heights Cross Country
This Friday 45 Craigburn students will run 2 – 3 km at Belair National Park as part of the Southern Heights Cross Country Championship. From this students will be selected to represent Southern Heights at the state championship day at Oakbank Racecourse in June. A big thank you to James R who has been training the students twice a week in preparation for this event. We are still in need of a couple of parents to assist on Friday with supervision of students on the bus and with timing at the event. If you are able to assist please email Karen – firstname.lastname@example.org
Power Community Youth Program
Our Yr 6/7 classes are involved in the Power Community Youth Program over 3 weeks run by the Port Adelaide Football Club players and staff. The program promotes messages on healthy lifestyles and respect and incorporates lessons on STEM. The final session includes a whole school assembly.
Growing with Gratitude – Adelaide Crows
The AFC Community Development staff are visiting this week with their new program “Positive Reflection”. The assembly style presentation will be delivered to the whole school promoting positive education, building resilience and wellbeing in children. Following the presentation Reception – Year 1 students will participate in a football based skills session.
Over the following weeks most classes will be involved in free tennis clinics during school time with Ben, a coach from Master Tennis Academy.
Sapsasa Knockout Sports
Craigburn has entered teams in the Term 2 & 3 knockout sports in boys soccer, boys football, boys netball and girls netball. Interested students who currently play these sports are trialling for selection into the school teams to compete against other schools. Preference is given to Year 7’s playing the sport for school or clubs for knockout sports. Trials will also be happening soon for Yr 6/7 boys interested in playing in the State Basketball Championships in July. Students are notified of all these upcoming trials via the students notices daily at school. We will be looking for assistance with umpiring and transport once teams and dates are organised.
