From the Head of Sport

As another week passes we draw closer to normality. Week 4 witnessed the resumption of Prep and Kurrajong Sport, and having had the privilege of coaching the Kurrajong MiniRoos session last Thursday, I can testify to the absolute delight it was to be involved with young people running around, learning, having fun and loving life in the unique environment that is sport.

While the dedication of all involved in Navy Blue sport is to be lauded, I want to express my admiration for those involved in Basketball, Volleyball and Rowing.  These sports have of course had to relocate to outdoor venues and facilities, and while the rowers are accustomed to being outside they still prefer their early morning ergo and weight training sessions to be indoors.  The students involved in the early morning Basketball and Volleyball sessions have been inspiring in their ability to adapt to changed circumstances and can do attitudes (growth mindset), as well as adopting what can be described as an interesting ‘look’ in order to help keep warm!  We have not seen Basketball players wear ‘beanie’s’ before!

This week will witness a start to us ramping up our expectations about attendance at training and of course reinforcing how we model our core values of ‘Commitment, Unity, Growth Mindset’ in pursuit of our purpose of ‘Better Never Stops’.

In line with the SA Governments recent announcements regarding Stage 2 restrictions we have updated our Sport Interim Training Schedule. The sports that are impacted are Basketball and Volleyball who are now able to train indoors and in some cases have a changed training day and/or time. All training times can be accessed via the Pulteney Sports App.
