Sport News 2014
On Tuesday 11th February the JMSS Swimming Carnival was held at Oakleigh Recreation Centre. Students’ attendance and participation was at an all-time high, with over 600 students attending the day and getting into the festivities. The weather on the day was amazing, which added to the atmosphere at the pool.
Some of the highlights of the day included the raft race and frisbee novelty events, the fashion parade (won by a group of students carrying a Doherty dragon) and the sheer number of students getting in the pool and earning points for their House.
Thursday 3rd April was the JMSS Athletics Carnival. This is another fantastic day for the students to get involved in the amazing extra-curricular activities the school offers. The event is a great opportunity for students to dress-up and show their house pride, earn house points by participating in a range of track, field or novelty events and to embrace being part of the school community.
Students were encouraged to dress-up, as there was a fashion parade for House points, and enter as many events as they would like. JMSS strongly endorses participation and there was at least one event for everyone; ability level is irrelevant!
Congratulations to PE teacher Mr Sam Webster on completing his 'Half-Ironman'! A 'Half-Ironman' is:
- a 1.9 kilometre ocean swim (equivalent to 38 laps of an Olympic-sized swimming pool with waves);
- a 90 kilometre bike ride;
- and a 20.1 kilometre run (or half-marathon, or 50 laps of an athletics running track).
Sport Overview 2013
Our second annual JMSS Games was held earlier in 2013 and it was fantastic to see our students taking a break from their studies, getting some activity and having some fun with their peers and teachers. Students chose from a range of sports in which to represent their House including Basketball, Netball, Indoor Hockey, Soccer, Tennis, Squash, Volleyball, Warball, Fencing and even Quidditch! Many thanks to The ‘Monash Muggles’; the Monash University Quidditch Club who volunteered their time to run a fascinating Quidditch competition. Congratulations to all students and staff for their participation and collective wonderful positive spirit.
