Friday 29th July Brauer College hosted 5 Primary School netball teams Port Fairy 1, Port fairy 2, Merrivale, Grasmere and St Johns, it was the first major hit out on the gym’s new floor which looks fantastic. The goal of the day was for every student to have fun, participate, show sportsmanship, learn and to have a go. Each team was rated on this in every game they played and the overall winner, displaying these qualities the most as scored by the umpires was Port Fairy 2. It was a very close contest as every team displayed amazing sportsmanship, rotated their positions, had a go at new positions, shot their first goal, played for the first time, encouraged each other and had lots of fun throughout the day.

Brauer College Year 7 Netball Academy students were terrific ambassadors for Brauer College helping out each team, taking warm ups, scoring, encouraging each player and generally being friendly and helpful. Gemma Rentsch and Delaney Waller umpired each game. Ebony Taylor from Year 9, was the stats keeper and the behind the scenes support for me (Thank you!!).

Our senior umpires on the day were Mariah Carlin, Peta VanBruggen and Mrs Roberts all of whom were fantastic with the players, encouraging and supporting each student and learner umpire in a very friendly manner. Thanks to Jane Martin who scored every game and took photo’s, Sharon Boswell for the coffee’s and to Mrs Nevill for your help, encouragement and support to me, the players and Brauer College students and staff.

Louise Brown talked to all the students, parents and staff about her sports background just before the final round and it was a great message of 'giving all sports/activities your best shot'.

Overall it was a great day and the primary school students had an awesome day playing netball in a friendly and non-competitive environment.
