Interschool Sport matches against Holy Eucharist

Today Holy Eucharist visited us for Interschool Sport. Our students were looking forward to improving on last weeks performance. Once again we did not win many of the games but the students still enjoyed the competition. They felt they had improved their skills and understanding of being involved and playing in competitive games. Next week we are competing against  Heights at home and this will be another opportunity for our students to develop their skills.

Girls Teeball- by Breeah

We played against Holy Eucharist in todays Interschool Sport. The scores were East 14 and Holy Eucharist 17. Our team played amazingly that, if l could, l would leave my mouth hanging wide open. We lost but since we tried we were successful. Holy Eucharist were a competitive team but they did not the display the most sportsmanship. We might have been frustrated at the end, but since we lost by only 3 points we were still happy. I would like to thank our amazing coach Ms Briony and l hope we have better luck next time. Our Teeball team is the best.

We were all disappointed because we lost but that just shows us that we have to practise more and not lose confidence or faith. We all tried our best and we had fun. Hopefully we will win the other rounds. Wish us luck.

Interschool Sports begins for 2019

Year 6 children participated in their first day of Interschool Sport competition on Friday. The children were excited as well as a little nervous. For many of the children it was their first ever competitive sporting game. We played against St Augustines PS at home in games of basketball, teeball and tennis. It was great to see them working hard displaying their skills, developing their knowledge of the games they played and having fun. SAEPS only won one game, but the children were not too disappointed and look forward to next weeks games against Holy Eucharist

Boys Teeball- by Alfred and Edward

We played St Augustines in boys teeball. We won by 2 points. The scores were East 21 and St Augustines 19. It was a great game. A funny part was when a boy from St Augustines was batting. He hit the ball and was running to first base, but he didn’t stop at the base-he just kept on going straight past it. Our batters had a lot of good hits and home runs. We all played well, had fun and next week we are playing Holy Eucharist. We would like to thank Mr. Sherwill for giving us the opportunity to play.

23/03/2018 Holy Eucharist

Hi my name is Lavina, this is  Sapa and Azaria. Our team mates were  Esther, Kuini, Jada, Haylee, Vy and Kaylee. We played for the girls basketball. Sadly this is our last game for the term. The scores were 4  East and 12  Eucharist. They were really good and competitive. Unfortunately we lost, but still tried our best. We want to give a big thanks to Mr Zaitzev for being our couch and putting up with us through this term, and another big thanks to Mr Sherwill for organizing our games and encouraging us to do our best and have fun. Another HUGE shout out is to all the girls that put their effort and hearts into the games this term, and trying their best everyday even if it doesnt include sports. This term with the girls was really good, we helped each other, tried our best

Hi my name is Deven Denkey and this is Nikhil M, andtoday we played for the boys basketball. The scores were 8 SAEPS and 1 Holy Eucharist. We came out winning like the Richmond Tigers. We tried our best to try and win.

Term 2 Week 6

Over the last 3 weeks the Year 5/6 children have been developing their understanding of the rules and necessary skills associated with softball. They have found striking the ball very difficult to master. However through lots of practice, many began to feel more confident when attempting to strike the ball. General ball-handling skills improved during the 3 weeks such as throwing(both overhead and underarm), catching and fielding, as well as general game sense.

During the same period the rest of the school have participated in a unit of work covering Gymnastics. The Preps started off learning how to perform a straddle roll and forward roll from a crouch position. After that they learnt how to perform a running forward roll. Most of the Preps really enjoyed rolling about on the large gym mats.

The Years 1/2s and 3/4s were engaged in refining their running forward and dive rolls. They enjoyed the challenge of performing these skills and worked with enthusiasm to complete set tasks.

On display was a wide range of abilities with children working hard developing basic skills, extending themselves by diving through and over objects, as well as performing synchronized rolls with partners. Some of the children were diving in groups of 4 or 5. What fantastic teamwork.

It has been a busy 3 weeks with report writing, but we have had a lot of fun, kept safe and worked hard with many successes.

Children Compete Against St Augustines

Hi my name is Lavina and I am Kuini, and we played against St Augustine’s Primary School. We played girls basketball, the scores were 2 East and 18 St Augustine. It took a lot of tears, pain and laughs to get through this game. We unfortunately lost but at least we tried our best.  Our team mates were Azaria, Esther, Kaylee, Haylee, Vy and Jada. Our captain was Haylee, she motivated us to become one as a team. We had a great time and we had fun. We also had fun practicing.   At the end of the day we realized this one quote… Success isn’t given. Its earned on the track, on the field, in the classroom-with blood, sweat and the occasional tear.

Hi my name is Deven and I am Nikihil and today we played against St. Augustine in boys basketball. The scores were 20 Augustine and 6 East. We tried our best but still lost. The best players were, Lefata because he tried to get a lot of goals and stayed calm, Brandyn because he helped us to score, Nikihil because he was a great captain. Written by Nikihil and Deven.

Hi my name is Charli  and I’m Shykeena. We played  against St Augustines in tennis. The score was 1/6 and sadly we lost. We are very proud since we all know that we tried our hardest and  improved our skills and did a awesome effort . Tu Van and Khang were really good sports and not only them but all the others too. We all had fun and that’s what matters Written by Shykeena and Charli

Hi, I’m Jordan  a Tee-Baller and here to report for duty. The scores for boys tee-ball are in. We got fourteen home runs and St Augustines with a whopping thirty home runs. As you can see we have lost but as our coach always says winning is NOT important but learning makes the difference. Our best player was Alfonso, he got two players out in a row. It was an intense game the ball flew right and left. We started off well but in the end we sadly lost.

Hey, hi and hello! My name is Sally and l’m here to report the girls tee-ball. I’m part of the team so it makes perfect sense that l’ll be reporting to you whatever happens behind the scenes [well most anyways]. Last week [16.3.18] was our 6th game of the term.We were all off to a great start, we were all very energetic and excited, as our previous game didn’t end as well (aka we lost).Which of course doesn’t absolutely matter, winning doesn’t, as long as we had fun and learn from it. We played against St. Augustines this week. The scores for girls tee-ball were, 16 Augustines and 21 East. We had loads of fun trying our best in both batting and fielding, as u can see our effort was worth it.

Welcome back to Physical Education at SAEPS

Welcome back to the SAEPS Physical Education blog for 2018.

Hi, my name is Graham Sherwill and I teach Physical Education. The aim of Physical Education is to develop children’s knowledge, movement skills and motivation to lay the foundations for a lifelong involvement in physical activity. Physical Education seeks to promote healthy lifestyles among children.

Many of the activities that the children will be involved in are based around developing their fundamental motor skills such as hopping, jumping, balancing, skipping, kicking, throwing, catching and striking. Most skills used in sport and movement activities are advanced versions of fundamental motor skills. Other areas that will be covered during the year include sport and sport education, gymnastics, dance, cooperative activities, athletics and swimming. The children will also be involved in regular fitness activities. I look forward to working with your children. If you have any questions, or would like to know how you can help your children at home, please come and see me in the hall.

If you would like to catch up with what is happening in Physical Education you may like to visit the PE blog. Address is

SAEPS travel to St Albans PS for Interschool Sport

Last Friday, May 12th we travelled to St Albans Primary School for Interschool Sport. We unfortunately did not win any of the matches, although the boy’s softball tied their match. If success is measured by winning and losing alone, then we are not doing very well. But if you consider how much the children have learnt about their respective sports through participation in Interschool Sport(skills, rules and tactical awareness) then it is evident that there has been success. Add to this the growth in confidence, self-esteem, social skills and the ability to work cooperatively with others in teams. Need l say more?

I would like to mention the efforts of one of our girls in the softball team. Tiffany volunteered to be the pitcher for the team, not having ever done it before. She began with quite a few loose balls, but did not give up and began to pitch a few good ones. However not too many though. She was having trouble with her technique. At the end of 1st innings the coach asked Tiffany if she wanted to stop pitching. There was a quick “No”- she wanted to continue. Walking out to pitch in the 2nd innings Tiffany began with similar results to the 1st innings. Some good ones and some not so good ones. However there was some improvement as the match continued. What was constant during all of this was the confidence Tiffany displayed in her skills, the way she never gave up, never worried about her poor pitches and the huge smile that was always on her face. Great effort Tiffany.

Today the girls’ softball team played with St Albans Primary School. The scores were St Albans 12 to St Albans East 7. Unfortunately, we lost but we had an amazing game and we learnt lots and also taught the other team some things as well. All our players were champions and we worked co-operatively. We were not expecting to play on a different field away from the school, but it seemed better since their oval was quite small. Written by Rebecca

Today, the tchoukball team played against St Albans Primary School. Even though we unfortunately lost with the scores 27 – 22, we tried our best to play on an unfamiliar court. We all played our best and scored many goals. Some outstanding players were Sa, Brian, Levi and Thinh who had great throws, strong catches and powerful goals. St Albans Primary School’s court had some things similar to ours such as a large D, but their rebounding nets that were stronger than ours. The whole team would like to thank Mr Mussel for being a great coach. Written by Kathleen and Kathy

My name is Anna and on Friday, we played netball against St Albans at their school. The scores were St Albans East 0 to St Albans 7. Even though we lost the game, it was fun playing and we are learning more about netball. Everyone tried their best and had a great time.
