Last Friday evening, I had the opportunity to watch our Senior E Boys play in their grand final against Matthew Flinders Anglican College in the Sunshine Coast Schools Basketball Competition. In what has been a difficult year with sport, it was great to see these students have the chance to play in a final. The game was close for the first three quarters with both teams taking the lead at various points. The PLC boys held off a determined Flinders’ team who fought all the way to the end. Congratulations to the team and also to Ethan Hall who coached the boys during the season.

In other intermediate and junior basketball games, the Junior B Boys had a strong win over St John’s College. A special mention also to the Intermediate C Girls who recorded their first win in the competition since 2019! The girls have been fighting hard for 18 months in both basketball and volleyball and managed to come away with a narrow victory on Friday against a physical and tall Good Shepherd Lutheran College team. Well done to all the girls and to Mrs Leah Croke for her coaching!

A reminder for all senior basketball players to please return their playing shorts and singlets to Mrs Natalie Campbell if they have not already done so.


On Wednesday evening, our Under 14 boys played in the 3rd vs 4th final of the Sunshine Coast Secondary Schools Rugby Competition against Chancellor State College. Chancellor dominated in the first half in both possession and points and went into half time with a handy lead. The PLC boys managed to fight their way back into the game in the second half but unfortunately went down by two tries at the end of the game.

 This now concludes the 15-a-side rugby competition for the year. Students are now looking forward to the SCISSA Rugby 7s competition which begins in Week 2 of next term. We have eight teams signed up for this competition which is fantastic.

Participation in rugby has significantly grown this year under the leadership of Mr Josh Cummins along with teacher contributions from Mr Alex O’Connor, Mr Andrew Block, Ms Kristie Brock and Mr Josh Danzey who have all given time to coach and train teams. Well done to all players and coaches!

Water Polo

On Monday evening, both our Junior A and Intermediate A Girls played at Sunshine Coast Grammar. The Junior A Girls played their first game of the season with a number of students playing their first ever game of water polo. Congratulations to the girls who were able to record a win over Grace Lutheran College.

The Intermediate A Girls played Sunshine Coast Grammar in a very close and entertaining game. The girls are still yet to taste victory in the top competition this season and went agonisingly close on Wednesday to only go down 10-11 at the end. Well done to Sophia Heinz who was announced as the most valuable player in the game.


Last Thursday, Year 4-6 students had the opportunity to participate in their first Gala Day of 2020. Students had been training all term and were very excited to finally have the chance to put these skills into practice in a competitive environment.

Well done to the following teams who won their division on the day:

  • Year 5/6 Division A Girls Volleyball
  • Year 5/6 Division A Girls Basketball
  • Year 5/6 Division B Girls Basketball Pool 1
  • Year 5/6 Division B Girls Basketball Pool 2
  • Year 4 Flippaball

Students continue in their SCISSA sports in Term 4 with another Gala Day planed for Week 5.
