Netball is a very popular sport at our school and teams have achieved success over the years at our District GALA Days and other competitions. The Netball Excellence program was introduced in 2017 and was designed to develop and improve skill, knowledge, technique and fitness levels of our players. The selection process for this program involves an annual trial held in term 4 where players are chosen for displaying high quality skill, ability and potential. This program is capped at 16 students; 8 students in each of our Year 6 team and Year 5 teams. Our training sessions not only provide players with opportunities to develop their skill and ability, but to gain a deeper understanding of other aspects of the game such as the rules and etiquette, the importance of team work, playing for enjoyment and sportsmanship.
Students throughout the year enjoy playing in our annual EHSS Invitational Netball Carnival, District GALA Days and the Queensland Primary Schools Cup. In recent years our senior excellence team were champions of their District GALA Day competitions and earned themselves an invitation to represent the district at the Metropolitan North Primary Netball Championships. Last year at the Queensland Primary Schools Cup, our senior excellence team were successful in their pool games and went on to win their division grand final.
