Byron K-W, Carys K-W, Daisy B, Kai I, Luke S, Hannah A, Max P, Michael D, Lucy A and Stirling v E who were selected to represent East Adelaide at SAPSASA State Athletics Day.

The following students competed in the SAPSASA Cross Country at Oakbank for the East Adelaide District team – Max P, Michael D, Archie B, Carys K-W, Tiffany B, Lucy A, Daisy B and Alice B.

Congratulations also to Ella W and Ruby L who have been selected in the East Adelaide District SAPSASA Netball Team to compete in the Statewide SAPSASA Netball Carnival 17-20 June, 2019.

Recently Alice and Daisy B competed in the Triathlon Schools Nationals in Queensland. They both had a great race in the U15 girls with Alice finishing 11th and Daisy finishing 16th – an amazing achievement for both, especially considering they were a couple years younger than their competitors!


On the 25th of May, I was invited to participate in playing halftime for the AFL Adelaide Crows vs West Coast Eagles Game. I played for the school as well as 11 other students who also play football for Rose Park. We got free tickets to watch the AFL game as well as play in it. It was an amazing opportunity and once in a lifetime chance to represent the school. Rose Park and Mercedes College combined players to make a larger team, we then went against another school. It was extremely nerve racking before getting on the field as we had to play in front of 41,000 people but in the end it was worth it! Fortunately, our team got to wear the Crows guernseys, but unfortunately, we lost to the other team. We got to meet Claud who is the Crows mascot and we took a photo with him. It was one of the greatest sport related event I’ve experienced. A big thanks to Jade J’s mum, Kylie, and our coach Morgan. Whilst watching the AFL game I got extremely competitive and angry when Crows lost!
