Netball Reminders 🙂

Thu May 20 09:31pmView PDF

Just a reminder to all those who signed up to play.

1) The fees deadline has well passed so if you haven’t paid then you probably haven’t been registered therefore you are not eligible to play.

2) From Yr 5-8 you have committed to a team, therefore you are expected to be there every weekend or you let your team down. 8 weekends is all it is and you are expected to put your team first. If you are injured you are still expected to be at the courts to support your team.

3) Doing a duty is a non negotiable requirement for ALL THOSE PLAYING. If you are unable to do yours then you must find someone to stand in for you. Anyone over the age of 14 is acceptable. You will probably only get 2 duties maximum all season.

Thank you to those who helped out last weekend- you are off the hook!!!! Thanks to Cam Melrose for organising this for us as it takes a lot of time.


Thank you,

Mrs Paul

Netball Opening Weekend


Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students.The Seesaw platform is used for homework activities as well as in class work.

Parents are also notified by the class teacher about classroom and school activities and events via the Seesaw platform. Parents can also Seesaw their child’s teacher.


Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see student work tagged with your child’s name and posts the teacher tags with ‘Everyone’. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child’s journal posts.
