Bay Suburbs Netball Tournament

Thanks to the teachers, parents and students who made the Bay Suburbs Netball Tournament run so smoothly on Wednesday.

A great result for the Kay Marshall coached Year 5 team, who showed tremendous character and spirit to fight back from 4-3 down to win the final, we are all very proud of them. The team they beat in the final currently play in Section 1 in the Year 5 Grade, so the girls should be very proud of their achievement. 

All other teams represented the school well but a special mention needs to go to those students who had never played netball before. Well done for giving it a go! 

Parnell hosted 11 schools, 60 teams and 580 players, on what was a very successful day only dampened slightly by the weather. Thanks again to the parents and caregivers for their work prior and during the tournament.
