REC SAPSASA Girls Cricket

Last week, 14 of our PS girls competed against Reynella PS in a SAPSASA Knockout game on our synthetic pitch – losing by just one run.

Umpired by Mr. Roche, the girls battled showers and cold winds, told me they tried as hard as they could, but still enjoyed the experience.

As consolation, eight of these girls however have been invited to play finals in a T20 Blast round-robin competition on the Adelaide Oval on November 11.  Coached by Mr. Roche, we all wish them well – Adelaide winners are flown to Melbourne to play on the MCG in December.

Two of the squad – Kaitlyn H and Chelsea K – have been receiving individual winter coaching from State women’s indoor cricketer Donna Clark, who attended the SAPSASA match and who will also support the girls when they appear on the Adelaide Oval.

Ramsey 1 & 3 Camp to Glenhaven Park.



In week 10 of Term 3 the two Ramsey classes went on a camp to Glenhaven Park. When we got there we were told the safety instructions and put our bags in the cabins. Next the two classes split into groups and started the activities. The activities were archery, high ropes, low ropes, leap of faith, hiking, raft building, tower challenge, bush skills, orienteering and the giant swing. A lot of people overcame their fears and the activities challenged everyone, even the teachers.

Throughout the three days we were there, we had many meals that were tasty. We had an amazing time at Glenhaven Park, but we were all happy to go home to our beds.

REC Boys SAPSASA Cricket

Our boys Knockout cricket SAPSASA team was successful on Wednesday, scoring the 73 runs required with nearly 2 overs to spare.  They now progress to the semi-finals in the Large School competition, being one of just 4 schools from 42 in the original draw. Mr. Roche, who umpired, said the boys played a steady, even game and we are extremely proud of their achievement and sportsman-like behavior. Taufiq, Evan, Cooper and Kane all took 2 wickets each, and top scorer Evan retired on 31 runs. Taufiq even broke a bail with a stunning fast ball! And thank you to Cam Wilson for accepting scoring duties. When we know who the opposition is for our next match, we will play them before Nov 13 – hopefully once again on our new synthetic pitch.
