Term 3 Week 6


TAS Trimester 3
Canterbury played St John’s Anglican College in the latest round of TAS Sport. The Boys Basketball had their most successful round so far. The highlight of the round was the 1-point win for the First V team. Similarly, it was the most successful round of the season for the Boys Football teams with big wins for the Year 7, 9, 10 and Seconds teams. 

The Girls Touch teams came up against strong and athletic St John’s teams. The Year 7, 10 and Seconds teams kept their undefeated season intact in hard fought victories. On the Volleyball court, Mr Porter has our teams firing with Year 7 and 10 also undefeated. 

This week we travel up to Caboolture to play St Columban’s in what promises to be an extremely competitive round. Players are reminded to make sure they arrive on time for warm up to begin as scheduled.

Volleyball Queensland – Senior Schools Cup
Over the long weekend of 9, 10 and 11 August, Canterbury took 3 teams to the Volleyball Queensland Senior Schools Cup. This is a statewide competition for Year 11 and Year 12 school teams. Canterbury entered a Year 9/10 boys team in the Year 11 competition, coming away with a well earned bronze medal. Despite the boys narrowly losing their semi final match, they showed great determination, spirit and commitment to dominate Kelvin Grove in the bronze medal playoff.

Canterbury also took a Year 9/10 girls team playing in the Year 11 competition. The girls battled nerves and the flu on day one though their performance rapidly increased throughout the remainder of the competition. Despite a tough day 1, the girls bounced back with a couple of convincing victories to finish off their tournament in 7th place. 

The last team Canterbury took to Senior Schools Cup was a girls, Year 12 Division 1 team. This team was comprised of girls from Year 9, 10, 11 and 12. A culmination of Canterbury’s best female Volleyballers. Playing some incredibly tough matches, the girls showcased awesome talent proving their worth against some of the best Volleyball schools, and individuals, in Queensland and Australia. Finishing in 6th place, the girls should be very proud of their efforts over the weekend.

Our Volleyballers have learned some lifelong skills from this tournament. Whether it be playing skills, teamwork skills, communication skills or even time management skills, our athletes have improved significantly. As coordinator and on behalf of the coaching team, I’d like to thank all the families involved for their commitment to what was a very long weekend! I’m very proud of the leaps and bounds we’ve achieved as a sport and look forward to all future Volleyball endeavours.
