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.
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.

Congratulations to the year 12 Child Studies class, who collected over 30kg of Vegemite and raised $115.40 for the ‘Kickstart for Kids’ initiative. Ian Steel (Founder) from Kickstart for Kids came to talk with the year 12 students about his program and how it helps kids throughout South Australia. Kickstart For Kids provides breakfast and lunch programs along with a mentoring program for South Australian schools. Kickstart for Kids currently provides breakfasts and lunches to 200 schools in the north, south and western areas of Adelaide. Presently, they are providing 35,000 breakfasts per week! This is amazing, so to get behind them be sure to visit their website at – http://kickstartforkids.com.au/Read More
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.

Can you spare a jar of Vegemite?
We have students in a year 12 Child Studies class undertaking an assignment, to spread awareness of a charity called ‘KickStart for Kids’. This charity helps make sandwiches for children who come to school without any breakfast or lunch. Vegemite is a popular filling but unfortunately it can be expensive, so is rarely donated. We think REC can help.
The aim for their assignment is to get many people involved to donate a gold coin or an unopened jar of Vegemite. Donations can be made at the front office or student services until the end of this week (Friday 11 Sept). Thank you for your support,
Tania Guest on behalf of Stacey, Emily and Nakia (students)
