We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land. We acknowledge that they are of continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today. Student News From the Principal Our blessings to the following students who will be receiving the sacraments of First Holy Communion on Friday 2 and Sunday 3 September in the Cathedral and Reconciliation on 6 July in the College Chapel. Antony Vincenzo Mastantuono, Antony Arena, Nicholas Catalano,Vittorio Cecere, Noah Condina, Stefan Conti, Aaron Crasto, Marcus Gorgone, Aiden Kaushik, Christian Lagozzino, David McBride- Hellewell, Finnan McEvoy, Brock Mitchell, Leroy Morales, Finn O Callaghan, Noah Pagnozzi, PasqualeSicuro, William Southam-Clark and Dion Zaharis. On Wednesday, students in the Junior Campus celebrated Book Week with a dress-up parade and welcome to Kaurna country. As a parent, myself, I appreciate the efforts parents make to ensure their child is dressed up which given the busyness of our lives is yet another task to complete. I can assure you, however, the joy on the children s and teachers faces affirmed your creativity and effort in dressing your child. Furthermore, do not be worried if your child did not dress up, as teachers made a huge effort to ensure they were included in the festivities. In her speech to the boys Mrs Clarke reiterated how impressed we are with your children. We are in daily awe that we are blessed to be teaching your precious child. Congratulations to students Daniel Larizza, Jack Owens, Bennett Reisinger ad Tyson Sarunic who received their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award from the Governor General at Government House last week in a ceremony attended by Mr Curnow and me. I congratulate these students and Mr Curnow who is the inspiration and organiser of the Duke s program at CBC. Congratulations to William Holmes Year 5 who won the National SAPSSA Cross Country Competition, which is a significant achievement. We are proud of William s sporting achievement. However, his manners, values, presence and hard work in his studies are achievements for William and his family. Our students are participating in the Annual Intercol competition with Blackfriars this week. The events include: Chess, Debating, Basketball, Soccer, Football and Table Tennis. I commend our students on their sportsmanship and participation. Staff News The College currently employs over 200 staff across the three campuses. As with any peoplecentric organisation staff movement is inevitable. At any one time we have staff absent for a variety of reasons, including professional development, personal leave, long service leave, sickness, military leave and a host of other reasons. I am always indebted to the professionalism of staff who work closely with College management to ensure student learning and wellbeing are not compromised by such absences. Liberating Education We open hearts and minds, through quality teaching and learning experiences, so that through critical reflection and engagement each person is hope-filled and free to build a better world for all.

Matthew s contribution to College life was also significant and we wish him every blessing in his new role. Visitors to CBC A delegation from Qindao in China also visited the College on Wednesday. I sincerely thank our Year 12 student leaders, Mrs Wen Ben and Mr and Mrs Clarke for hosting the tour. CBC enjoys a close partnership with four sister schools in China and earlier this year a number of College staff visited schools and participated in an educational leaders forum in Qindao, China as part of our ongoing commitment to Asia literacy. 18 delegates who are attending the National 2016 Australian Heads of Independent Schools of Australia - Leading Learning Conference in Adelaide visited the College on Thursday CBC. Catholic Education News Catholic Education South Australia (CESA) has announced their strategy to transition Year 7 students to a secondary setting by In a letter by CESA to families, they wrote: The national peak body the Ministerial Council on Education, Employment and Training and Youth Affairs (MCEETYA) agreed to achieve a uniform approach to schooling across Australia by This agreement set in motion changes across the country which have seen Year 7 education move to a secondary setting in all states and territories except South Australia. In 2015 CESA made a commitment, as part of the Strategy for Leading Catholic Education to New Levels of Excellence, to transition most Year 7 classes to a secondary setting by What Italy Study Tour 2017 Students interested in participating in the 2017 Italy Study Tour are encouraged to submit their expression of interest before 31st August for the remaining places. The 16 day study tour will be of interest and benefit to all students currently in Years 8 11 with or without Italian language studies. The estimated cost is $5,500. Contact Mrs Zwolski or Mr Lopresto for further details. this means is that in most schools Year 6 will become the final year of primary schooling and Year 7 will become the first year of secondary schooling. CBC has always been on the forefront of educational innovation and best practice. In 2009 the College made the decision to integrate Year 7s into the Senior Campus with unanimous CBC parent support and the ratification of the Non-Government Schools Advisory Board. There was overwhelming evidence that this transition was essential to ensure the maximum learning, social and emotional needs of our students. We continue to be affirmed in our decision and are proud to be leaders in SA in providing Year 7 education on a Secondary Campus. Conclusion College staff are blessed to read spiritual reflections written by Christian Brother R J McDonald cfc AO. In reflecting on last Sunday s Gospel on the theme of humility; Julian writes: Thérèse of Lisieux, a Carmelite nun, who many Catholics also know as the Little Flower, once wrote some words that connect with the theme of today s gospel: Never mention anything concerning yourself which people account praiseworthy, such as learning, goodness, birth, unless with the hope of doing good thereby, and then let it be done with humility, remembering that these are gifts of God. This week I keep in my prayers the members of our community who often go unmentioned in this newsletter. I ask your prayers for the child who goes unnoticed in the yard, the parent who struggles yet succeeds to ensure their child is fed, educated and taught values which will guide him/her through life, the unsung heroes at CBC such as our support staff, parent auxiliary, Board members and teachers who go about their work with both quiet determination but also with great hope and love for your child. Amen Mr Noel Mifsud Principal 2 INSIGHT

3 From the Deputy Principal Our Literacy Skills Open Our World Last week our junior students participated in a trial online NAPLAN test at the college, in preparation for when the NAPLAN tests become electronic in NAPLAN is a national test that allows us to measure a student s ability in both literacy and numeracy against both state and national averages. Ludwig Wittgenstein, an Austrian-born philosopher once stated that The limits of my language mean the limits of my world. Our education calls on our students to have developed literacy skills, an ability to interpret, analyse, synthesise and report. Our senior students are required to read a variety of different subject matter throughout the school day. They are forced to switch gears mentally from science classes where they are talking about refraction to maths classes about percentages to English classes hunting for the use of metaphor in Shakespeare; often that gear switch is expected to happen in the space of five minutes as they walk from one class to another. Literacy for all our students is more than pairing sounds and letters or establishing the meaning of words in sentences. Even though this is important in the junior years, students can become frustrated when they can technically sound out the words, but can t understand conceptually what they re reading. This is why when we talk about literacy, it s important to remember that there is more to literacy than just superficially teaching the mechanics of reading; it s also about the development of students conceptual and linguistic understanding of their world. This year our curriculum coordinators at both campuses are studying a ten session workshop entitled How language works which will assist teachers in using general reading and cognitive strategies that will empower students to analyse text at a deeper level. Research tells us that around Year 4, students make the critical transition between learning to read and reading to learn (Chall, 2000). It is this transition that makes the skills of literacy at the senior year levels more challenging. As the student moves through their schooling they are required to have skills that are more than decoding words on a page or recounting the chronology of a story skills that are necessarily emphasised as students first learn to read. Rather, it is about engaging with complex ideas and information through interaction with written documents. Using texts as vehicles for learning, critiquing, and extrapolating from other knowledge. Richard Vaca, author of Content Area Reading: Literacy and Learning Across the Curriculum stated: Adolescents entering the adult world in the 21st century will read and write more than at any other time in human history. They will need advanced levels of literacy to perform their jobs, run their households, act as citizens, and conduct their personal lives. In our classrooms we need effective strategies to get students to think about, write about, read about, and talk about the content they learn in each subject area. Literacy is probably the single-most important part of education. Without literacy, all other learning is impossible. Literacy involves using reading, writing, speaking, listening, and viewing to gain more knowledge. Without the ability to do any of these skills, there is absolutely no way to acquire more knowledge. Literacy is essential for learning. It is crucial that language arts teachers are not the only ones in the school stressing the importance of literacy. While the language arts teachers may be the only ones truly teaching literacy, it is the job of all educators to facilitate literacy learning. Literacy must come before any other learning can occur, and we cannot grow as a society without literacy. Mr Shaun Clarke Deputy Principal SAPOL Road Safety Information SAPOL s Road Safety Section recently attended CBC and delivered a road safety presentation to Year 12 students entitled Getting Home Safely, presented by a currently serving police officer. This presentation is designed to empower young people to make informed choices, educated decisions and to foster change through open discussion on subjects such as peer group pressure, choices, risks and consequences associated in driving a motor vehicle. The session documented an actual fatal crash which occurred on Muck-up Day, the final day of school when an 18-year-old driver crashed the vehicle he was driving while unlicensed, drink driving and speeding. The crash killed one friend and seriously injured the driver and another friend. SAPOL s presentation explores the crash and the subsequent social and legal consequences with the students. The Road Safety Section also provides a free bi-monthly e-newsletter Talkin Road Safety to schools which provides articles on road safety which are of interest to drivers and other road-users. There are a number of websites which may be of further value to you and your son: raa.com.au sapolice.sa.gov.au mylicence.sa.gov.au howsafeisyourcar.com.au For any further information on Road Safety please feel free to contact the Road Safety Section on or by movie NIGHT Saturday 3 September Movie Night Postponed The P&F committee have decided to postpone the movie night, due to low ticket sales. We feel a number of contributing factors have caused this; Crows finals, Father s Day and the Royal Adelaide Show. A new date will be announced later. It Is a night where we are celebrating our new screens in the Gym. As a committee it has been very disappointing to make this decision. When the new date is announced please consider supporting our P&F who do amazing work for the school community and help fund so many worthwhile things at the college.

4 Sally Heinrich speaking with the boys The fire of literacy is created by the emotional sparks between a child, a book, and the person reading. It isn t achieved by the book alone, nor by the child alone, nor by the adult who s reading aloud it s the relationship winding between all three, bringing them together in easy harmony. Mem Fox. Book Week at CBC has been a true celebration of books, knowledge and reading and special book-related activities for students arranged across the year levels. We began our celebrations with award winning Australian author and illustrator Sally Heinrich who shared some drawing tips and the process of creating a book with the boys. Book Week began with the book treasure hunt, which had the boys exploring in the library for the mystery Australian books. Students delighted in dressing up as their favourite Australia book character and paraded around the courtyard for parents, grandparents and Chinese guests. Reading under the Southern Cross was a special reading evening for both the boys and parents. They snuggled up in the library reading books by Australian authors, drinking hot chocolate and nibbling on damper with bush jam. The week ended with a book week assembly where buddy classes reimagined one of the shortlisted books and presented it to the school. As Danny Parker stated in his book Perfect the week was absolutely PERFECT! Visiting Chinese delegates 4 INSIGHT

6 Relationships Trust From the Wellbeing Team Trust is the foundation of a successful relationship. It is the first element in the Relationship Quotient (RQ). Trust is the belief that a person will not put their interests ahead of yours. Without trust there can be no growth, no emotional healing and no peace. Trust is an act of honesty and courage. We seek out trust. We seek it in our leaders, we seek it in each other and we seek to find it in ourselves. Trust is the cradle of security and the foundation of generous care for one another. Trust promotes authenticity. It is the bedrock belief that this person can be relied on, depended on and trusted. Trust frees us to play, grow, be creative and be ourselves. In all relationships there are pivotal moments when trust is tested. These can destroy or strengthen a relationship depending on how we manage these challenges. These challenges rarely appear alone but more commonly come as a cluster. Building up trust enables us to ride through the rough patches in a relationship. Where there is no trust there is no future. Instead blame and shame replace trust and become the weapons of mass disconnection. Blame and shame cause subterfuge and resentment. We can end up not trusting anyone, feeling lonely or engaging in self-destructive acts. Being able to trust one another frees us to be our true selves. All of us have the capacity to trust. Trust is the gift we give when we truly connect with others. It is the basis of true friendship and real intimacy. It is giving for the relationship and not giving into doubts and fears. The pathway to trust often begins with tentative steps. People are wise to be careful and alert. Our ancestors had to work out who to trust, who was a friend and who was a foe. It always seems that we should be careful before placing our trust in someone. To blindly trust others is to risk being duped, damaged or hurt however, to not trust others is to be lonely, anxious and insecure. To shift from wariness to trust is a courageous choice. We are all in the care of one another. We cannot live alone. We have no choice about that. What we do have a choice about is the quality of that care. Co-operators give more than competitors in the long term. Competitors give conditionally. You may win the odd battle through competition but you won t win a good life because you inhibit giving. Animals who engage in hierarchical war-like battles experience victories but have shorter and less healthy lives. Conflict creates stress as well as wounds. It takes from one another and gives nothing. In sports, teams of champions are often not as successful as champion teams. The increased levels of co-operation in the champion teams eventually shows though as the sum is greater than the parts. Our ancestors may have survived the odd scrap though competition but it was the people who were able to cooperate and trust who lived well in tribes and that is why we are here today. Our ancestors trusted people. We are at our happiest when we are connected and give to others. Trust is a crucial element of love. The tentative steps of early trust involve reciprocity. One person gives trust and the other proves themselves to be trustworthy. Over time this builds into a pattern. A pattern that is relied upon but it is a pattern that doesn t begin unless someone begins it. Someone has to be brave enough to give trust in order for the pattern to begin. It is an act of bravery that in effect says, you could hurt me or take advantage of me but I am trusting you to protect and care for me. It is not an act of conditional trade but instead, a decision to create powerful engagement in a relationship without conditions. Meaningful human lives involve being honest, having true friends, and having opportunities to express our talents, to find meaningful work, to create and live among beautiful things and to live cooperatively in surroundings where we trust each other. This frees us to live in peace with ourselves and others. When we are hurt or harmed, there is a choice to either retaliate or repair. We live in a world where retaliation is often sought. This is despite retaliation being the cause of more hurt and in turn, creates cycles of violence and retaliation. Trust does not harm. Retaliation must be avoided. Retaliation damages everyone. Instead we need to forgive and grow ourselves as well as working to repair the relationship that has been damaged by trust or being taken advantage of. We all willingly put our faith in others. We trust many people we don t know or will ever meet. If you have ever flown in a plane, crossed a busy road, sat in a classroom or eaten in a restaurant, you have trusted others. This basic expectation that people are trustworthy explains why we become upset when our trust is not realised and others harm us. It shakes our core view of the world as a dependably kind place. It threatens our trust in ourselves and in our judgements. This can make us cautious to invest in relationships with others and trust again. We can become profoundly disappointed, almost disillusioned. We can be challenged to our core. Why me? What have I done to deserve this? Am I to blame? All these questions are asked as we try to explain this for we trust and do not expect to be harmed. We all live in relationships. Our relationships define who we are and how we see the world. If we want healthier relationships in our world we need to create them. When we live and work together, disputes are inevitable and errors are made. How we deal with these moments, define our lives. More relationships fall apart from fractured trust than from boredom or incompatibility. We can all benefit from increasing our ability to repair relationships and rebuild trust. Two great tests of trust are: to trust in the first place; to trust after something has gone wrong or we have made a mistake.

7 Basketball Open A Basketball CBC 56 defeated Marryatville HS 50 The CBC team has thus far put together a 4-0 winning run and this was by far the closest game we have had. It tested the team s resolve and ability to play a high pressure game. For the majority of the third and fourth quarter the game could have tipped either way as the score shifted constantly in the affirmative for both sides. The margin was usually within the one to two-point range. The first and fourth quarter saw tied scores but we had a slight edge in the second and third quarter. It was good to see the players talk to each other as a team during any break in play, encourage team mates on the stripe and not play any panic basketball in the closing stages of the game. Our penetration was good as was the assists on the inside, however the intercepts and steals ultimately saw us over the line. Our defence help but we had lapses in concentration. CBC had to revert to a man-on-man defence as MHS put up some excellent three pointers against our 2-3 zone. To put this in context, MHS have been undefeated this season until this game. It was great to see everyone contributing to the scoreboard this week. We played with three players down and hope to have a full team next week. This was another excellent build up to Intercollegiate next week. Jaudzems had an outstanding game (10 points) with good no nonsense scrambling for the loose ball under considerable pressure) and some excellent defensive rebounds. Offensively, he contested well off the boards, strong rebounds as he drove to the basket and score. Also notable was his great positioning to rec eive passes inside, notably one from Dalwood to convert. Danieli (8 points) played one of his best games for the season leading the team with the number of intercepts and drives to the basket to convert. His number of assists also is a stand out and in this respect the Daniele Dalwood combination, particularly on the inside is simply awesome. Daniele was the game changer in the fourth quarter as we played a box and one. He did two critical intercepts/steals consecutively and single handedly, in literally two minutes, off the opposition ball carrier in their defensive zone to score. This provided the last minute buffer we needed to consolidate and counter any last minute three-point conversion from MHS. Squire was outstanding this game. He scored our first 12 points with two threes in the first to start the score board started. He kept the pressure on MHS with two more threes in the third and one in the fourth to keep the score ticking over. Not to content with threes he contributed to the team with individual twos in drives to the basket and with great unselfish passes to players in a scoring position or cutting in the lane. Squire finished with 17 points. Adcock collected five fouls but his contribution to the team cannot be underestimated. In addition to his formidable rebounds in defence he also worked hard in offence tipping the ball to our team to ensure a second scoring option. His defensive pressure was such that often offensive opposition players preferred to pass the ball off rather than risk a low percentage shot over Adcock. It is also noted that he did a classic screen and strong drive to the basket. We as a team lifted with his intensity. Di Troia not only scored but had the majority of rebounds in three quarters. Most notably was a strong offensive rebound against considerable opposition pressure to step in and score. His strength is in defensive work and the ability to pull the ball down, importantly protected it and then intelligently pass off to the guard in the best position. His control of the back court also gave us the edge as he put pressure on the opposition three point shooters particularly in the third quarter. Hamblin (9 points) was effective in the rebounds for a small forward. He was also instrumental with decisive assists to the team mate cutting the lane. Hamblin played a significant fourth quarter as he nailed a three when the game was at a pivotal point in addition to a good hard scramble for the loose ball. He was also instrumental in the mid-court as he controlled the passes and play. Dalwood played extremely good defence (rebounds) and constantly made good offensive positions. This availed himself to good assist in passing and in the reverse also made him an excellent target to receive from the drive. Scored an important 10 points for his efforts. The outstanding thing about his game this week was the combination passes and receptions of the ball from both Daniele and Jaudzems as a result of his great and almost instinctive positional sense. Mark my words, this is going to be a formidable combination in The team thank parents and supporters as always for your encouragement in pushing the team through at those critical moments. We also thank and extend our appreciation to Kathy Carrieri for her constant support, feedback on individual and team statistics and advice during the game. She often supplies that vital bit of information that helps the team. Thank you Kathy! Hard to pick the best as all really played well and contributed in this nail-biter. Best Players: M Squire, O Dalwood, R Jaudzems, S Danieli Next week. Final game for the season and Intercollegiate game at Blackfriars. Mr Gary Jalleh Open C Basketball CBC 64 defeated Gleeson 21 (13 Aug) Another solid victory by the CBC Open C Basketball team with every player contributing. Joel Navarro was outstanding. He was our top scorer with 20 points. Marcus Romeo continues to win the rebounds in defence and offence. He racked up 15 points. Aidan Smith s desperation was on display and he scored a season high 13pts. Captain Adrian Niscioli led from the front and scored 10pts. Scott Bradbrook chipped in with 4pts. Well done everyone on a polished effort. CBC 37 defeated Marryatville HS 26 (20 Aug) This was a well-earned victory by the CBC lads. Marryatville came at us hard and fast and the intensity remained for most of the game. Marcus Romeo played a terrific lion hearted game. He was competing against two talls all game. His rebound work in the second half was the difference between the teams. Marcus top scored with 12pts. Denzel s pressure on the opposition ball handler was very impressive. He scored 9pts. While Scott Bradbrook didn t trouble scorers his consistent defensive effort was important. His ability to get back in defence displayed his incredible level of fitness. Jack Tavian s leadership on the court was very important and scored 7pts. Aidan Smith (2pts) once again brought his defensive energy. Mr Tony Carrieri Open D Basketball Cabra College 31 defeated CBC 24 CBC Open D s 3 game winning streak ended (31 24) to Cabra over the weekend. The team s application could not be questioned as evident by the boys leaving the court with their heads held high. The Open Ds played till the final siren with effort and a willingness to play as a team. This desire to play as a team was commented on by the opposition coach. Each player had terrific moments of brilliance in the game and this was discussed as a team post match. The CBC Open Ds go into the next match with confidence and a sense of achievement in their successes so far. Big thanks to all the parents for making the effort to take the boys to the game. Top Scorer: Khang Nguyen Mr Justin Wenham and Mr Raisy Lopez es Middle B Basketball Trinity 39 defeated CBC 33 We didn t have the home ground advantage this time. Trinity were well drilled and played a very smooth game. CBC were not out of the hunt though. We had some great plays and were able to keep up with them most of the time. Some silly turnovers as travel and personal fouls that were questionable gave Trinity the edge in the final term. Overall CBC boys played with terrific gusto and never gave up the fight to keep up with Trinity. Trinity are renowned for their tenacity and ball skills especially at shooting. Something CBC needs to work at. One more game left now for the season Intercol. This game will be played during the week Thursday 25 August at 5.00pm. Again it was a great game to watch and coach a fantastic team who enjoys this sport and play with honourable sportsmanship. Well done boys! Next match away at Blackfriars Intercol. The boys will be bussed to the venue from school, but will need to be picked up by parents/caregivers after the match. Best on ground, whole team effort. Thank you to all parents who support the boys by getting them to the matches and cheering them on. Also a big thank you to Girish for scoring during the game. Mr Emmanuel Gaitaneris Middle D Basketball CBC 32 defeated Nazareth 14 What a way to end the season with our last win! I am extremely proud of how the boys have played and presented themselves over the course of the basketball season. They have displayed great sportsmanship and ball skills that continued to improve throughout the season. The development of our rebounding and the way the ball is handled down the court has certainly been represented in the score margin of our games over the last few weeks. It has been a pleasure being your coach and watching you play a great, sometimes nail biting game of basketball every weekend. Our final game was certainly another great show of CBC Middle D prowess, finishing undefeated for this term. It certainly looked like it was going to be a close game, finishing the first quarter one point down with Nazareth securing a penalty shot. The second quarter put us in a more secure position and we managed to increase our lead throughout the remainder of the game as we utilised our subs. In the third quarter tempers on court flared and as a result CBC was awarded a technical foul. Players from both teams gathered in the centre of the court to watch on as Connor took the shot. Connor did not let the pressure get to him and scored! We really pulled ahead in the fourth quarter, securing our lead over the opposition. Our lead scorers for our final game were: Thomas Radovanovic 5, Brodie Winter 5, Ethan Dahan 3 and Connor Dunne 3. Well done to all our boys on a great season. A big thank you must be extended to our wonderful parents for supporting us every week; the games are certainly made more special with your presence and cheers. Also thank you to David for stepping in and taking on the role of coach over the last few weeks. It can be a difficult task at times but I have certainly appreciated being able to learn more about the game through observation. See you all next season for more brilliant basketball!

8 Football First XVIII Football Prince Alfred College (114) defeated CBC 6.3 (39) Best Players: Steven Tsoukatos, Marcus Costanzo, Michael Cotsios, Taylor Sarunic, Sam Danielle The first quarter saw a seesawing battle that left us two points up at quarter time. Even at half time the score was 6.5 to 4.2 then the floodgates opened. The third quarter was a debacle; not a patch on our first half in which PAC scored nine goals to our one. Tackling was extremely poor with little or no pressure on the ball carrier. PAC players ran to space and did what they liked in the most unacceptable quarter seen this year. The mental side of the game was very poor to the point that most players thought it was OK to spectate. Our full back line did a great job and if it wasn t for Marcus Costanzo, Michael Cotsios and Steven Tsoukatos things could have been a lot worse. Our last quarter was competitive. The margin should have never been anymore than about six goals. The game was there to win but no one seemed to believe we could win except for me. My simple fix; always believe you can win otherwise why bother playing? Start tackling properly, chase and put pressure on the ball carrier with second and third efforts required. Run hard to find space with multiple efforts required to find better space. The Intercol is there for the taking so lets toughen up the mental side of the game with a combined team effort. Spectating is out action is required. We have plenty of ability so lets show them four quarters on Saturday. There will be a thousand people at Prospect on Saturday lets see some real pride in the guernsey. Mr Mike Buttfield Year 5 Football CBC (113) defeated St John s Grammar/Belair Blue 1.1 (7) It was a fantastic, four-quarter performance from the team again this week. We were fierce at the contest and played a tough brand of footy in a game that was played in good spirits. There was an even contribution from the team, with everyone playing their role and doing their bit. Structurally, we can still improve by having our forwards push up to provide an option when the ball is in our defensive area as well as having our midfielders setting up a wall when the ball is in our forward line to lock it in there. Against the better teams that have caused us problems this would be essential. The midfielders worked tirelessly all game, running back to help out the defenders, who played a disciplined team game on their opponents despite lengthy periods of time without the ball going down there. There was some great ball movement, teamwork and run and carry, resulting in a high scoring contest and plenty of opportunities for our Year 2 Football forwards. It was great to see some players on the score sheet for the first time this season and the guys looking out for each other and hitting up the open target. Best Players: Charlie, Jed, Samuel, Ethan K, Lachlan P, Finn, Lachlan VM Goal Scorers: Cesar, Jed 3, Jack, Charlie, Ethan K, Manveer 2, Harry, Finn 1 Mr Vincent Rignanese Year 2/3 Purple Football Linden Park 7.4 (46) defeated CBC 5.2 (32) The CBC Purple team competed strongly all day, every player must us proud, fighting for the loose ball and really listening to instructions of running into space and moving the ball to loose players. Really, really proud of the effort. We had both CBC teams playing for CBC Purple this week, because CBC White had a bye and in the end the rotations were unsettling for the team and against strong opposition, it was the difference. Ryan, Harrison, Diego, Kosta and Daniel played well all day. Well done guys. Very proud of all player s efforts. Well done. Thanks to Tony Harrison and Craig Evans for Goal Umpiring. Mr Ray Chiaramonte soccer Year 9C Soccer CBC 7 drew with Pembroke 7 Best Players: Joseph Farina, Brody Moylan Goal Scorers: Joseph Farina 4, Dylan Simpson 1, Adrian Salvemini 1, Dylan Klose 1 The match began with a quick run by Pembroke in the early minutes, getting straight past CBC defence to score the first goal of the match. CBC s reply came quickly, with our first goal being scored by Joseph Farina. Pembroke proved exceptional in the speed of their attacking players, scoring another two goals without reply. Brody Moylan and Peri Christopoulos both played well in the mid field, gaining possession and creating a number of attacking opportunities. They were able to feed the ball forward to Jeseph, who scored CBC s second goal. CBC and Pembroke exchanged goals for the remainder of the first half, with Joseph scoring two more goals to put the overall score at 6-4 at half time. Pembroke was the first to score in the second half, but CBC replied quickly with a goal from Dylan Simpson. This triggered momentum in the team, managing to keep Pembroke away from goals, with Brody Moylan saving a great penalty shot to keep CBC in the match. The next opportunity came from Adrian Salvemini, who gained possession of the ball in the mid field and Congratulations to William Holmes in Year 5/6 P who won the Australian Cross Country Championship for Under 10 Boys 2000m last Saturday in Canberra. An outstanding achievement! William was the only boy from South Australia to win his age group. It has been 30 years since South Australia has won the Under 10 National Championship. William's other victories this year included the Catholic Schools Championship and State Championship. He is also ranked number one in South Australia over 800m. Well done. successfully made it past all of Pembroke s defence to put the ball in the back of the net. As the match drew to a close, a corner shot was taken by Daniel Petrilli, which found Dylan Klose who put the ball in the net with a header past the keeper. CBC managed to hold off a reply from Pembroke to end the match as a draw and complete a great comeback for the team! Mr Brett Linke Table Tennis Table Tennis Middle#1 defeated St Paul s Open# 1 defeated St Ignatius With two teams playing home before next week s Intercol there was plenty of opportunity to move the talent around & experiment with different combinations. One of our juniors filled in for a light Open St Ignatius while at the same time trying to finish a PE assignment on his laptop that was due by 4pm and still partner a female player. This was successful until he realised he couldn t the task in question to the teacher. Is this multitasking or opportunism or poor use of the school diary? He finally passed the paddle over, found someone in the front office to solve his ing crisis & returned to gym an unencumbered scholar. By this time the games were almost over so he reflected on his next PE assignment. Both teams won well. We considered eleven wins from eleven matches, as we wheeled our bicycles down Frome Road into the fading light. Mr Rory Harris
