SIS Weekly Sport

It has been great to see numerous Padua students taking up the many sporting opportunities offered so far this term.

The Intermediate and Senior SIS teams have been representing the College in a variety of sports including Basketball, Soccer, Volleyball, Handball and Indoor Cricket.

Many thanks to the staff who volunteer their time to organise and coach the teams from week to week.


Mornington Interhouse Swim Carnival

Over 700 Padua students represented their Houses in the Interhouse Swimming Carnival at the Pines Pool, Frankston.

Numerous heats, BIG SWIMS, novelty events, exciting finals and the waterslide all led to two successful (fun-filled) days. The Year 7 & 8's were fantastic... and they were so much noisier than the Intermediate/Senior students... or am I just getting older!!

Congratulations to CHISHOLM AND MERCY on your victories.
