Sports News Week 1

Summer Basketball

Games begin this Thursday for girls teams and this Saturday for boys teams. Please look on the front office desk for times that your child’s team is playing. You can also check the Perry Lakes Hawks website, under the school competition. The club puts out the fixtures each week. If you are aware of what time your child is playing, please let other parents in your team know. Being a great community, I am sure the word will get around.
A quick shout out to all Year 4 boys teams. I will need either some people to change over and join Kapinara 7 or I will need at least 2 people to help that team out each game until the team has enough players. If you could please contact me if your son is keen to play another game, please contact me at

Term 4 Sport Update

Term 4 Inflatable Soccer Week 2-8

Kapinara students are invited to play in the Inflatable Soccer competition at City Beach Primary School. The Yr 4-6 competition will be on Tuesdays and the Yr 1-3 competition will be on Wednesdays. Interested families are asked to make their own arrangements and then register with Mrs Smith by email on advising of players, which parent will be the manager and a team name. The recommended size for a team is 7 players. Fixtures will vary between 3:30pm, 4:15pm and 5:00pm. When teams play at 5:00pm they are required to stay after the game to pack away the equipment. 

Term 4 Basketball Competition

There have been many students register for the Term 4 basketball competition! Mrs Smith will be creating the teams soon. Please understand that this competition is to allow new players to try out the sport and for existing players to work on their skills. On that note, where possible requests to keep teams the same as the winter competition will be honoured, but some teams may be mixed up if needed. Please contact Louise Smith sooner rather than later if you have any concerns. Your understanding and flexibility to accommodate any team changes is appreciated.

Cross Country Weather Update

The carnival is on tomorrow unless there is lightning forecast around the race times. The races have been condensed so the students can return to school by approximately 1.00 to avoid the bad weather.

New race times are as follows:

All Year 3 students 12.10

All Year 4/5 students 12.20

All Year 6 students 12.35

All presentations will be given at the next assembly (not at the City Beach oval tomorrow)

The bus is scheduled to arrive at 11.30 to pick the students up and transport them to City Beach Oval. City Beach Oval is on Fred Burton Way – it is not the oval at City Beach Primary School

Students will be reminded today of the following things;

  • bring a warm jacket and clothes to change into should they get wet. Perhaps even a spare pair of shoes and socks.
  • eat their lunch at recess so they have plenty of time to digest their food and have a snack for after the race.
  • bring a water bottle for rehydration. Even on cold days, rehydration is important.
