Last week we took two teams of Year 6/7 students to Tumby Bay to represent Navigator College in a SAPSASA Basketball Carnival. The teams played a number of modified games against a pool of 9 schools from the Eyre Peninsula district. The boys team were competitive and won the majority of their games. The girls team were also competitive and had some very close games. It is pleasing to see such positive sporting attitudes within this age group at the school. Those students that had the opportunity to represent Navigator College did so with pride and displayed excellent example of great behaviour and attitude.
Due to the popularity of Basketball within the age group, there will be another opportunity for all students to participate in an in-school competition later in the term. All Year 6/7 students are encouraged to participate in SAPSASA events or trials and these are made known to students at school. Thank you to Tumby Bay Area School for hosting a great event and to Mark Panizzolo for coaching the boys team.
