Term 4 is always a time of great reflection of all that the boys have achieved over the course of the year. 2018 has provided many sporting highlights from boys who started Kindergarten on day 1, not quite tall enough to reach the monkey bars who are now swinging and climbing with confidence through to many of the primary boys who have represented Lindfield and their families at CIS and PSSA level in many sports.
Our Representative athletes for 2018 are – Connor Mosely (Cross Country), James Fergusson (Softball), Sam Schultz (Snow Sports), Finn Wicks (Athletics & NSW 12 Years Rugby), Flynn Clatworthy (Athletics) and Tee Barrington-Higgs (Athletics).
The excitement does not stop in Term 4 though with the JP Swimming Carnival to come in late November, the IPSHA Basketball, Cricket and Touch Football Competitions that boys in Years 2 – 6 are competing in each Saturday morning and the IPSHA Gymnastics Competition.
Last Thursday four Lindfield boys – Henry Lea, Declan Williams, Toby Cameron-Tavendale and Tee Barrington Higgs represented Newington College Lindfield at the IPSHA Gymnastics Competition held at the State Gymnastics Centre in Rooty Hill. Henry competed in a large Level 1 Pool performing on the floor, vault, high bar, parallel bars and rings. Henry had a high score of 9.1 on the vault! A brilliant result. Declan, Toby and Tee competed in the Level 2 competition on the same apparatus with Declan also competing in the Pommel event. The boys placed on the floor, vault, rings and pommel.
2019 will bring many more sporting opportunities for the Lindfield boys, supported by the Sport Directors and Coaching Staff from our Stanmore campus. I encourage all boys to have a relaxing break but to keep up swimming and fitness amongst the Christmas celebrations ready for another big year!
