The past two rounds have been a tremendous success for the Volleyball girls and all teams are to be commended for their efforts and victories. Round 7 was CHAC’s first Alumni round, which brought together past students to support the current students as they took on St John’s Anglican College. Their support had a huge influence as the 1st VI, Year 10, Year 9, Year 8 and Year 7 teams all came away with 3-0 wins. The 2nd VI fell just short of a victory however, with a score of 1-2. In the Supplementary Intermediate competition, the CHAC Red team had a 2-1 victory over the CHAC Blue team and in the Supplementary Junior competition, the CHAC Blue team won 3-0 against CHAC Red.
The success of Round 7 carried over into Round 8 as the Year 7, Year 8, Year 9 and Year 10 teams all had 3-0 wins against John Paul College; however, the 2nd VI were unfortunately unable to secure a victory in this round. The 1st VI are to be highly commended for their efforts in this round as their determination and hard work brought home a 3-2 victory against the undefeated JPC team. In the Supplementary Junior competition, the CHAC 7 Blue team earned a 2-1 win against the Ormiston Red team but, unfortunately, the CHAC 7 Red team lost 3-0 to Ormiston Blue.
With finals coming up this weekend, I couldn’t be prouder of how the Volleyball girls have performed during this season. The best of luck goes out to the Year 10 team, which will play for a premiership this weekend. As the undefeated team in their division, I am confident that the girls will achieve the result they deserve. Regardless, they are to be congratulated on their outstanding performance all season. As a whole, it’s so great to see the improvement every team has made this year and how much enjoyment the girls get out of playing. The numerous wins every team has earned is down to hard work and great attitude displayed throughout the entire season. I can’t wait to see the results they can achieve in this final round.

The final round of fixtures before the finals was held last weekend, with CHAC up against the formidable JPC. Special mention to both the Year 7 and Year 8 teams for coming out on top against JPC with the scores being 2-0 and 2-1 respectively.
Moving into the finals, after facing tough opponents last week, all teams are determined to bring the season to a close with a win. The final standings for all teams are spectacular with all teams playing for third place, except for the 2nd XI who are playing for fifth place. The 1st XI are determined to defeat St Columban’s for the Year 12s final game ever for CHAC. The Year 8 and Year 7 teams will battle it out at Ormiston, Year 9 and Year 10 teams play at Canterbury College, and the 2nd XI and 1st XI will return to St Paul's. I wish all the teams the best of luck with their matches and can’t wait to see the overall results.

Girls’ Touch Football
The Touch Football girls have continued a successful season across all teams. In Round 7, the College came up against St John’s Anglican College in the inaugural Alumni Round, where past students attended the games to support our current students. The 1st VI, 2nd VI, Year 8 and Year 7 teams all came away with wins and the Year 10 team played a close match which ended in a draw.
In Round 8, the College played John Paul College, and I am pleased to announce that all our teams won their matches. This was a great result in the last week of round matches. Good luck to all teams playing in the finals this weekend. I am sure that teams will continue their hard work at training and come away with as many wins as we can.

In Rounds 7 and 8, CHAC Basketball remained strong against St John’s Anglican College and John Paul College. The boys have trained hard and the results were evident when watching them at the weekend; it sure seems that the 1st V and 2nd V teams next year will be very succesful. This weekend, CHAC Basketball splits across Brisbane with the 1st V and 2nd V playing at St Paul's, the Years 9 and 10 teams at Canterbury College, and the Year 7 and Year 8 teams at Ormiston College.
Whilst no CHAC teams are playing for a premiership, this season has been a great learning experience for many of the boys. I am sure they will continue their improvement next year. It would be great to see many people watching the games this weekend, to see the boys finish the season strongly.
A number of CHAC students have recently represented Lytton and Composite Districts at the Met East Athletics Championships. Congratulations to all students on their outstanding performances. Most notably, we would like to acknowledge the following students who have been selected in the Met East Athletics Team to compete at the State Championships in October.
We would also like to congratulate Eve Mollee (Year 7) on her selection in the Under 12 Met East Girls Cricket team.
Any students who would like to participate in the Met East Triathlon/Aquathlon in October, please see the Sports Office (Secondary) or Ms Monaghan (Primary) to sign-on.

Junior TAS Term 3
Congratulations to all the Basketball and Football teams for their hard work and great team spirit throughout the Term 3 Junior TAS season. This term, CHAC entered seven Basketball teams and three Football teams into the Junior TAS competition. All students played and trained hard, demonstrated fabulous sportsmanship and greatly improved their skillset and game play throughout the season. A special congratulation goes to the Year 5 Boys’ and Year 6 Boys’ Basketball teams for completing the season undefeated.
Thank you to the coaches and supervising teachers for their support this term. Without your commitment it would not be possible to enter the number of teams or achieve the results we have this term. Finally, thank you to all parents for their support on game days and ensuring that your children attended the early morning training sessions.
