Basketball Stars!

Eight of our new programs in Western Australia held their first Annual Junior Basketball Carnival in Perth recently.

It was a fun-filled, action-packed two-day event, beginning with an overnight stay at Camp Wattle Grove.

After an Acknowledgement of Country by one of our Esperance Mentors, the girls took part in a teambuilding activity to break the ice, followed by dinner and a yarn around the campfire.

It was wonderful to see girls from across Western Australia coming together to get to know one another and begin developing friendships.

On the second day, the eight programs participated in the Basketball Carnival, which commenced with an Acknowledgement of Country by Dijinda Harris, a Year 7 Balga Stars student.

Not only did we see some amazing basketball skills throughout the day, but also a great deal of committed teamwork and sportsmanship.

Congratulations to Angie Harris, a Year 8 student from Esperance Stars, whose design was selected for the tournament t-shirts, which were given to all students and staff as a memento of this inaugural event.
