A Year of Amazing Achievements for All Saints' Sport

The Sports, Health and Physical Education Department (SHPE) at All Saints’ College is thriving, achieving remarkable success in areas ranging from basketball, swimming and netball to athletics and cross country.

SHPE Director, Katie Clayton, said despite the challenges of Covid in 2021, all staff and volunteers had managed to continue their usual sports programs.

She said they had also ventured into some new sports, including introducing a soccer opportunity in partnership with the experts at J & J Soccer Academy.

“The response to this club has been overwhelming, with students in both Junior and Senior Schools enjoying expert coaching through this great sports program in a fun environment,” said Ms Clayton.

“We are looking forward to seeing this opportunity grow and flourish in 2022.”

Reflecting on last year, Ms Clayton said the 2021 sports year began well in the swimming pool with the annual Interhouse Swimming Carnival at HBF Stadium in Mount Claremont.

“Here we witnessed not only some outstanding, competitive and record-breaking performances, but also an amazing sense of House spirit and determination,” said Ms Clayton.

“Students swam competitively, developed water confidence and connected with their peers.”

The All Saints’ College Interhouse Cross Country carnival was equally successful and although parents could not attend, the Live Stream team provided an excellent service; enabling the community to view the event online.

The final interhouse carnival of the year was Athletics, which was held on the beautiful grounds of All Saints’ College.

The efforts of a very strong and determined Associated & Catholic Colleges (ACC) Interschool Team, were invited to attend the State Athletics Centre to represent the College. The team achieved an exceptional fourth place overall on the day, with some individuals achieving outstanding personal bests.

Ms Clayton said one of the goals of SHPE was to successfully use sport and sports programs as a vehicle for student growth and development.

“We also believe in incorporating the All Saints’ vision and culture to help empower students to realise their potential and make a positive difference to our world,” she said.

Interhouse Sport at ASC is thriving in 2022 following the introduction of new sports, and the Community Sport Program has continued to flourish, with the ASC Basketball Club experiencing significant growth.

“At a grass roots level, our younger students participated in the ‘Net Set Go’ program as an introduction to netball,” said Ms Clayton.

“ASC Community Sport has also continued its partnership with Southern Cricket, running Monday morning skills sessions each term for our students. These skills sessions are a great way to improve batting and bowling techniques whilst building friendships with fellow ASC cricketers.”

The ASC Year 11 and 12s were crowned Champion Southern Associated Schools (SAS) School for 2021 after winning in sports ranging from tennis, badminton, basketball and netball to volleyball, frisbee and football.

Other teams to achieve success throughout the year included the Year 10 Girls’ Touch Rugby team, the Year 7-9 Girls’ Basketball team, Year 10 Girls’ Netball, as well as many soccer and futsal teams.
