I would like to thank the 2013 House Captains.

Gabo: Chloe Scott and James Wetherweld

Bastion: Jasmyn Litherland and Larz Van Dersant

Without the assistance of these young men and women the house events would not have ran as well..or even at all. They assisted with planning, organising, fundraising and most importantly encouraging!!

The leadership that these students have show will put them, and us, in great stead. You have the ability to change the world for the better. Good luck and thank you!

House Captain’s #HouseChampions

This year saw the first full Gabo V Bastion house challenge. Students participated in their houses in the following events:

– Swimming carnival

– Athletics carnival

– Cross country

– Home group challenges (inc. master chef, Mallacoota fun run, games, and intellectual events)

– Thursday lunch sports (inc. touch rugby, volleyball, cricket, soccer, ultimate frisbee, kickball, basketball, chess, softball, science week)

It was a mighty battle with close to 100% participation ratio from the secondary and primary students. The event culminated during Health and PE week. Before the final event, the score was Gabo: 3609 – Bastion: 3403, which put Gabo in a seemingly unbeatable position (as each event was worth 50 points), 206 points in front. BUT in what could only be described as a huge boon for Bastion the umpire determined that the final game (ultimate frisbee) would be for 207 points. It was all on the line!!!

However Gabo, the deserving team, managed win the last event and win the house challenge for 2013. Congratulations to all the students, teachers and house captains.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the students who participated, had fun, and did their best. A huge thank you must go to the House Captains; James, Chloe, Jas and Larz. They assisted in the running of the events, and without them it would not have been possible. It has been a privileged to work with such young professionals.

Please see below for the yearly table and highlights.

On Tuesday the third of September we left at 7:45 to go to Bairnsdale for the zone athletics. It was a great day with lots of good results.  I was in the high jump the long jump and the 800m race.  I got two thirds; one in the high jump, one in the 800m, but unfortunately in the long jump I came 5th. After the athletics was over we went to McDonald’s to have lunch, then after that we went home. A special thanks to Mr Berry for organising the day and to Mr Embleton for driving us there.

Squark. The Pelicans will fly again!!!

It was with this in mind the amateur Mallacoota P-12 College “Pelicans” Netball team would take on the professionals of Gippsland. The girls arrived bright and early at 7am to board the bus to Bairnsdale. The bus ride was filled with eager chatter and sports strategists. The energy was contagious. Timing was perfect, as we hit a large shower on the way to Bairnsdale, but no rain during competition.

 DSCN1406

During the first game v Bairnsdale SC the girls put up a great fight. Emma didn’t miss a basket, Kahli and Haydn were a fantastic defensive pair – using their strength to advantage. We narrowly lost the first game 10-6. The second game was against a much taller opponent is Lakes SC. The girls put up a great fight. Although out sized Jess and Hanna were as quick as baby pelicans, gliding across the court. The outcome was 10-4 in the negative. In the 3rd game the girls played the professional outfit from Nagle, in full body suits – just like the pro’s. The girls saw what playing twice a week and training for 10 years will do. The last game was our closest school, Orbost SC. They were a hard fighting outfit. Envy used her high to her advantage (and also blocked with the back of her head at times) and was a star on the wing. Kahli had a fight on her hands with a very intimidating GA. But she did fantastically, winning many free’s for the mighty Pelicans. The girls lost 6-21, but put in a great effort.

Thank you to all the girls, who committed to a team, dealt with 6hrs of driving, never gave up, and most importantly had fun!! You should be extremely proud of yourselves.

Once again Mallacoota P-12 College had fantastic runners to send though to the Gippsland Championships. The team this year was Brodie Scott, Jess S-S, and Bowan Joiner. They were joined by myself and Tracy Joiner. Our students are a resilient lot, dealing with a 10 hr return drive just to run for 20 minutes. We left on Wednesday after school, ate at the always favourite Noodle box, and managed to make it to the Berry farm by 9.30pm. Predictably everyone was tired and the students hit the sac straight away. As farm life dictates, the students were up early. A relaxing farm tour was on the cards to prep the students for the challenge to come.

DSCN1377

The team got to Lardner Park early with time to prepare. The weather this year was fantastic, not a drop of rain! The early arrival may have contributed to some nerves while the students waited, with lots of fidgeting. However the team did fantastically. Bowan ran first out of the team and came 14th out of 60 students in Gippsland. A personal best, well done! Jess ran next and came 21 out of 50 students, great work!. Brodie ran last in the U16 category. It was a great race with Brodie leading half way though. She hit the wall but kept pushing and came 4th to make it through to states. Well done Brodie.

DSCN1379

This is the 2nd year one of our team has made it through to States. Mallacoota P-12 College is proud of our 3 expert cross country runners.

A huge thank you to Tracy Joiner who accompanied us and assisted with the driving. Without parents support these events could not run. Thank you very much. A thank you to my dad as well for hosting the students, who as always, were exceptionally well behaved. And a final thank you for the students, who put up with a longer transport time than any others, represented our school and Gippsland, you should all be proud of yourselves. See below for photos

Mallacoota P-12 College held their annual Cross Country on the 21st of May. Much was at stake with the legendary Gabo VS Bastion house championship. The weather held off and we were treated to real cross county conditions. 15 degrees, bit of water, and a slippery track.

The first of the ranks was the U7’s/U8’s and they were off like a shot. Next year we may trial pace runners :). After that it was the preps, who were very nervous but extremely brave!. They were fantastically supported by some of our secondary students (apparently onesies are back in) . Next was the very experienced 9’s and 10’s, followed by the 11’s and 12’s. The secondary senior students were off next to run 3kms (females) and 5kms (males) who all did a fantastic job managing the distance. Some students also walked, which gained their houses valuable points. The last group was the rest of the secondaries, the largest group of the day. There was a lot of negotiating for spots at the line. But once they were gone attention turned to the finishing line.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

All of the students made it to the line. Spirits were high. They were cheered on by family, friends, teachers. Great work to all. See below for the results.

A huge thank you to all the students. We had runners, walkers, time keepers, and directors. It is great to see such school spirit. Without student assistance events like this would be difficult if not impossible.  Thank you to all the teachers who encouraged and assisted on the day. Particularly Kathy who helped arrange the day and Narelle who completed all the scoring. Thank you to the parents and community members for their support. Its great to have extra help, and the students love the atmosphere of the crowd.
