Congratulations to the brilliant 8 tennis players who represented Leopold at the district championships today. You all did an amazing job. A special mention to Olivia who won the championships and to Matt who was runner up. They will both represent our school at the All Geelong championships.
Our grade 5s today played on the school 12 hole golf course in superb conditions. Whilst the course tested some others breezed through with ease. A energised PE teacher also may now hold the course record of a 2 under par!!!
Our grade 2 students this week are using downball to further develop their forehand strike skill. They are experienting with high bounce rubber balls and slow bounce hot shots tennis balls. They have also been using 4,6 and 8 square courts experienting with various names for each position. One thing for sure though is that there plenty of fun being had
A fun day was had by all at the t20 blast cricket championships in Geelong. Leopold was represented by 4 teams and played 8 over games in a round robin format. One of our girls teams were lucky to make it through to the grand final and after a solid bowling performance proved too good with the bat going on to win by 60 runs. Congrats to all team members.

Saturdays are fun days for me. I try and wake early to ride and run. Then in the morning my family and I usually try and spend some quality time do an activity together. We repeat this in the afternoon and try to watch a family movie in the evening. 9pm sees me in bed as Sunday is an early ride for several hours on the bike pedaling my way round the coast.
What does your Saturday look like?
After an inredible game of basketball yesterday at the Division championships our star player arrived home to a nice surpise. Ty had been trialling for a place in the State Country basketball team to play in the Southern Cross Challenge.
To his delight his performances and skill letter were noticed by selectors and he was successful in selection.
Congratulations Ty on a wonderful year.
