Jo's Sport Talk

It’s so exciting to see the winter sports season getting started!

Our ‘Little League’ basketball team, the TPS Slam Dunkers, started the season off last week, and the older basketball teams will have their first games over the next few days.

All of the TPS hockey teams will begin this Saturday, and netball will commence at the start of Term 3.

Registrations for our winter sports teams have now closed and sport teams are looking full. However, the TPS Hot Shots, our year 3 & 4 basketball team would love to have another player or two. If your child is in year 3 or 4, and is interested in playing basketball, please email me at

All team lists have now been distributed for basketball and hockey; if you have not received a team list, please let me know via email.


The draws are also posted on the sports noticeboard outside the school library

The TPS Cross Country is on Thursday 2nd July from 9:00am to 1:00pm at Memorial Park. This is a great whole school sports event which focuses on fun and participation, but also allows the kids to challenge themselves and be proud of their efforts. A notice will be distributed closer to the date, with further information, including approximate race times.

Any parent support at the cross country would be appreciated, please email me if you can help out in any way. This is our first sports event in a while, so it will be great to see everyone in their house colours and to hear lots of encouragement from the edge of the track.

Finally, my office has been relocated to the Technology Block. My office hours remain the same, feel free to pop in at anytime, however, email is often the best source of communication.

Monday 11:00am - 3:00pm

Tuesday & Wednesday 11:30am - 3:00pm

Thursday 9:00am - 3:00pm

Although kids will enter as the TPS team, parents will need to provide transport and supervision for their child.
