Soccer Knockout v FMDS

It was the perfect day for a soccer showdown. The sun was shining, the students were excited and everyone had shinpads! Our Senior Boys soccer team took to the field at 12:15pm and started the game strongly, earning the first corner. It wasn't long before Fairy Meadow scored, but we quickly evened it up. The game was hard and all the boys played amazingly well. Close to full-time we were all on tenterhooks as the score was 2-2 and no-one could remember who won if it was a draw.

Keirabald Portrait Competition

Congratulations to all the students whose artworks were selected for entry into the Keirabald Portrait Competition. Opening Night was last Thursday and it was wonderful to see the MOPS works of art hung around the walls of the Wollongong Youth Centre. The standard of artworks was amazingly high. You can see some photos from Opening Night here.

AFL - Paul Kelly Cup

Wednesday dawned sunny and bright - perfect weather for a day of AFL. Mrs Johnson, Mrs Lieschke, Year 5 and Year 6 set off for Dalton Park, serenading the bus driver as they went. 

International Space Station Link

Can you believe it?  14 students from Mt Ousley spoke directly to Commander Kevin Ford on the International Space Station, as it was orbiting about 400km above Italy.  Have a listen to the audio recording of the live contact.  Amazing!

The Illawarra Mercury was at the event and they published a story with photos.  Check out their gallery.

Rugby Union fun for Stage 3

Last week students in Stage 3 were fortunate to be visited by Sean Barrett who put them through their paces by teaching them some great Union skills. Everyone got involved and had a great time, which you can see in the photos here. Shirts were dirty, shorts were ripped and the smiles went from ear to ear.
