The World Cup moved to Melbourne today as the stars of St Luke’s came out to play.
Highlights included many goals scored by Riley, Laura, Gemma and Ciaran. Ivan was ecstatic kicking his goal also. The sportsmanship was impeccable, as students encouraged and supported each other. The boys team was triumphant winning every game and making it into the Grand Final. They played really well and came runners up.
The girls won 3 games and drew another just missing out on playing in the final. Overall it was a spectacular day.
Today a team of 14, year 5 and 6 students, eagerly boarded the bus, to play in the Monash-Waverly Interschool Soccer finals. We played our first game and drew 1:1. The next game was easier, with a win of 8:1, which put us into the Grand Final. The team played really well keeping the score to 0:0 at half time. The other team then scored two quick goals but we fought back just missing 1 goal then scoring 1. The whistle blew and the score was 2:1. It was very close and we were all proud of how well we played.
We were very fortunate to have the support of many parents throughout the day and the fabulous coaching of Fergal O’Farrell, Conor’s Dad, who gave up the last two Friday’s to share his expertise with us.
It was a fantastic achievement for everyone to make it so far in the competition.
Mama Mia!!! Brava Brava! Molto Bene!!
Today was a sea of Red, White and Green as we all donned the Italian colours and celebrated many wonderful things that the Italian Culture has brought to Australia.
Our day began with a soccer clinic from two professional soccer players. We were amazed by their skills and brushed up on our own.
Next the whole school gathered in the Hall for an Italian Play called La Vacanze, about a trip to Italy, which included many catastrophes along the way. It was hilarious and full of slapstick humour.
After recess we competed in an Italian marathon, sketched places to visit around Italy then enjoyed pizza and gelati for lunch.
We cooked Italian bread, filled with jam, then played competitive games of soccer.
It was a fabulous day and we are very grateful for Signora Senzo’s great organisation.
