Our 2018 Middle School Sports Day saw the children compete in a variety of individual, paired and team races, which displayed the skills they had learnt this year. Children demonstrated their running, basketball, rugby, cricket, hockey skills and more, and took part with true Loreto spirit and sportsmanship. The Year 7’s, as is traditional, also took part in their end of school race and their leavers ball race, which produced smiles all around.
After all the children’s races, there was the traditional Parents race, which involved some questionable hockey skills! Year 5, 6 and 7 became joint winners to great applause from the stands, with year 4 runner’s up.
The end of the sports day came to a close, with the four Houses marching down to the parents, being led by their Sports House Captains. This year’s sponsor were the Cabezutto family who then presented the children in Year 6 and 7 with medals for field events, which the children had competed in throughout the year.
Next up were the individual awards, which are given to children in Year 7, based on their performances at Inter School level throughout the year. These winners were as follows:

Then the big team awards were presented, starting off with the Road Racing Cup. Children in Middle School compete throughout the year, gaining points for their house if they finished in the top three of their year group when competing at Road Racing. This year’s winners were St Joan’s (Sports House Captains Eliza Agius Victory & Adrian Chumillas Onteniente). Next, were the results of the Academic Shield, which was decided by the House that has gained the most house points throughout the course of the year. St Joan’s were a very close second by only 21 house point, however the winning house was St Joan’s (Academic Captain Karizma Daswani). Lastly, came the results of the Sports Day Shield. Points were awarded for the results of the Year 6 and 7 field events, as well as the results of the individual and team events on Sports Day. This year, the winners were an ecstatic St Anne’s (Sports House Captains Lucia Olivera & Juan Isola Lopez).
The children all worked hard in preparation for Sports Day and all played their part in the days success. We would like to thank all the families and friends who came to support the children and help create such a great atmosphere.
