Sports Day 2020


Dear SJMS Community

I think I speak for staff and students alike in saying that we are all still recovering from our mammoth efforts on Friday at our 2020 SJMS Sports Day.

We were extremely fortunate with the weather which in the end provided perfect conditions for our students to give it their all.

It was fantastic to see so many families in attendance to support our students who represented their teams with great passion and sportsmanship. It was great to have the whole school community together, including our Preschoolers, who may have even upstaged our parents and old scholars with their tug-of-war efforts.

I must once again congratulate Woods for taking out the John Partington Memorial Shield and Tappeiner for winning the Spirit Cup. Well done also to MacKillop and Joseph for their gallant efforts during the day.

A massive thank you goes out to all of the staff and parent volunteers, Mrs Moore for managing the scoring, Mrs Fantasia for coordinating the sign in and First Aid station, Daniel Faraonio for supplying the PA system and Norwood Oval for providing the perfect venue for us. Let the countdown begin to Sports Day 2021!

Yours sincerely

Tom Siinmaa
