CIS Open Girls Football - Round 3

The Open Girls Football team played their Round 3 match of the CIS NSW Open Girls Football Competition against Moriah College last month at Moore Park. The girls were coached by two former A League players who offered both knowledge and encouragement to the girls.

Inaburra scored an early goal in the first half but Moriah College were quick to respond with the scores being 1-1 at half time. Inaburra came very close to scoring a few goals in the second half but Moriah College were too tight in defence. The scores remained 1-1 at full-time which lead to penalty goal kicks. Inaburra was successful with their first 4 kicks and Moriah College only scored 2 goals which meant that Inaburra won the match. The girls will now play PLC in the Quarter Finals. Awesome game girls!

Year 8 Camp

In week 3, Year 8 camp was held down at Waterslea campsite near Nowra last week. The first night saw all of the students join together for a night of fun before the girls headed offsite the next day for a night out in the luxury of tents. The boys completed a day of activities that included abseiling, archery, rafting, billy cart construction and riding, and jumping down the water slide. 

The next day the roles were swapped as the girls completed the activities while the boys braved the coldest night of the three out in tents. All the students had to either hike out to the campsite, or row to it and then swapped the methods of transportation to get back. Students enjoyed the great interaction with their leaders and each other as they learnt more about themselves and their creator. It was excellent to see so many students challenge their limits and do something they had not tried before.

Media Students Filming at Baptist Union Conference

 In week 3, a crew of six media students from years 9, 10, 11 and 12 operated live vision equipment at the NSW & ACT Baptist Union’s 'Celebrate 150' conference and celebration held at the Navarra Venue, Le Montage, Lilyfield. 

The vision from three cameras operated by our crew was ‘live’ switched for projection at the event and live-streamed for participants around the state, during the 4 sessions held through the day and into the evening. The professional crew working alongside our students were hugely impressed with their capabilities and work conduct.

We were very proud of our Chamber Strings who competed at the Sydney Eisteddfod performing at The Concourse in Chatswood. Up against the big schools of Knox and MLC and we held our own! Great ensemble directorship by Irena Dimitrovska

Fete and Open Day

How good was Inaburra's Open Day and Fete? We trust you enjoyed the day, picked up a bargain, a book or a BBQ egg and bacon roll for lunch.

It was great to see the diverse range of skills and talents in Senior School students throughout the day. 

Thank you to our Student Leaders, Prefects and students who ran tours. The band members and choir members who performed throughout that day were spectacular, and we hope you had a chance to see our Media students on the big screen running presentations throughout the day. 

Great job Senior School on showing the community what a great contribution you make to Inaburra.
