On March 27 our AFL team hosted Hallam Senior Secondary College from Melbourne. This has been an annual event for the past 6 years. This year Erindale proved too strong, with a 107-21 win.

Best players were Josh Fahey, Oliver Synett, Jarrod Barker and Leigh McKay. The team will travel to Wagga to play Mater Dei on April 10.

As a part of a programme to develop the Performing Arts in schools in the Erindale area, the Year 10 Drama students from Erindale College have been combining with a group of Year 10s from Wanniassa School each Tuesday. The openness and enthusiasm of the students in this class has been infectious and all are disappointed (if a little tired!) when the session comes to an end. During this time students will be involved in developing work for the Erindale College self-devised production in Term 3.

As members of their local AFL football clubs (Tuggeranong Hawks and Queanbeyan Tigers) the students generated nearly $4000 through donations gained.  
Well done to all involved.

On Thursday 14 March – Friday 15 March I took two teams to Wollongong for the South Coast Regional Championships. Erindale Red was undefeated all day until the semi-final, losing 1-0. This goal was also the only one we conceded all day. A super effort from the girls. Erindale black had the hardest pool I’ve ever seen in the regional championships. They fought hard all day and continued to improve. The day had many challenging moments, but it was pleasing to see the girls represent themselves and Erindale with pride.

Erindale Red

Player of the day - Chloe Daisley with Lillian and Monique tied for 2nd.

Erindale Black

Player of the day - Alyssa Bozinovska. Followed closely by Abi and Toree.

Thanks to Tracy Costigan for joining us for the trip.

In Week 4 Erindale College travelled interstate to compete in two Rugby 7’s tournaments. First up on Wednesday was the boy’s rugby squad where two teams travelled down to Batemans Bay. They were both undefeated on the day only allowing the opposition to score one try for the entire day.

On Friday the girl’s squad travelled to Cooma where they split into 3 small teams as the competition had some late withdrawals. Again, the Erindale squad was dominant with a mixture of experienced and new players combining for some amazing tries. It was enjoyable couple of trips and an excellent start to the sporting season.

A big thank you to all the students from other squads who helped fill the teams. It allowed new and existing students to bond as well as try the ever-growing sport of rugby 7’s.

On Thursday 28 February and Friday March 1 our Erindale students were lucky enough to spend two full days working with international director, performer and theatre educator, Noa Rotem. These workshops were open to students across the arts so that dancers, actors and musicians all had the opportunity to work together, exploring the possibilities of collaboration. Emphasis was on theatre as a physical and visual medium and the students developed the confidence to express and find story through their bodies without need of words. The work they created was truly extraordinary, but it was the connections made and the strong sense of ensemble that developed which was a joy to witness. As one student noted: “I think it’s a rare opportunity to work with people who are all giving 110%”.

Stay tuned for the original work that these talented students will create for Erindale’s Term 3 production!
