SA International Basketball Cup

On Wednesday, March 10th, the Year 10 Woodville High Basketball program students participated in the very first SA International Schools’ Basketball Cup held at St George College. Our representative team were the only mixed team (6 boys & 3 girls) and competed against schools who were senior and all male students. So far this year, the basketball program has embraced a resilient culture, battling adversity and not succumbing to when things get too difficult. Our team battled every game and finished second overall, which was a great feet to achieve given the difference in age and physicality.

Further to this event, there was a 3-point contest held of which the year 10 Basketball program students won! They were able to display their skills and showcase their improvements over the course of the day.

As the basketball program director I was very proud of how our students handled themselves on and off the court, demonstrating good social skills in getting to know students from a variety of different schools and cultures.

Western Zone 3×3 Basketball Carnival

On Friday, 12th of March, Woodville High School were heavily represented in the Western Zone year 8 and 9 3×3 Basketball Carnival. We were able to nominate 7 teams which is outstanding and highly represents the passion for basketball within the school community. We were competitive and showcased strong team culture through support for one another in between games with plenty of numbers. It was a fun and positive environment demonstrated by all students. It was played in good spirits and good sportsmanship. As part of their assessment task, the year 10 Basketball program students were assigned a team each to coach. The student coaching staff displayed good leadership skills and were able to assist in basketball knowledge and development for all players.

We finished the carnival being the 2nd highest ranked high school behind Henley.

A huge thank you to Mr Brett Hains and Ms Michelle Place for assisting in teacher supervision.
