Swimming
The Junior Primary Gala took place on a cool, cloudy day.  APPS A and B Teams competed and it was a wonderful experience for all.  The A Team came fifth and the B Team came eighth.  The Grade 1, 2 and 3 girls swam very well and thoroughly enjoyed the gala.

Thank you to all the parents who were very supportive.

Well done, to all the swimmers for doing their best, not only at the gala but throughout the season.  Thank you so much to Miss Pearson, Mrs Dane and Miss Hartmann for coaching and for their great support to all the teams.  We wish everything of the best to the Grade 7 swimmers and to the APPS teams going forward.  Train hard for 2019.

Tennis
The A and B team were scheduled to play six fixtures this term.  Two were unfortunately rained out, but we were able to play four matches and we played those in the best APPS spirit:  we won some tight matches and also lost some.  All in all, I can say that we had some brilliant matches and rose to the task admirably.  Well done, to all the team girls.

Our junior tennis squad has had some excellent practices and we think the girls will be ready to step up and play in the team next year when our Grade 7 girls have moved on.  We wish the Grade 7 girls a great start in their respective high schools.

We spent a fun filled afternoon with some of our Grade 2 and 3 girls at the St Mary’s tennis festival.  The girls played with girls from other schools and were exposed to some early tennis experiences.

We have completed our tennis championships and the results are:  Senior Doubles Champions for 2018 are Megan Porter and Zainab Ballim; Junior Champion for 2018 is Maya Ndegwa and Kate Thorburn is the runner up.  The Senior Champion for 2018 is Megan Porter and Jessie Orphanides is the runner up.

Well played to all the APPS 2018 tennis girls.  Keep on playing.

Yours in Tennis.
Miss Dot Hartmann
