A big congratulations to two of our students, Brooke Williams and Yasmin Richters for their recent achievements in Netball. Brooke Williams has made the USC Thunder Academy Programme and Yasmin has made training partner for the USC Thunder Ruby Netball team, which involved a very intensive selection process.

Congratulations also to Zara Richters on her selection in the QLD Cyclones Surf Lifesaving team. A huge achievement!

We want to celebrate our students’ sporting successes with the Pacific community so please let Mr West-McInnes know of notable achievements in sport as they happen throughout the year.

Swimming Carnival

A few important bits of information for our Yr 7-12 Carnival coming up on the 10th of February.

  • Parent spectators are allowed to attend the carnival. Parents will need to sign in at the pool and there is a small fee to enter. Parents will be provided a tent area to set up chairs away from the students in the grandstand as per Covid Safety Plan.
  • Students may purchase food from the Kiosk using cash or cashless payment methods. Students should make sure they have plenty of water with them for the day.
  • Students not in competitive races will still have opportunities to participate in various events and get points for their house, and we encourage all students to find a way to be involved on the day.

Competition Sport

Competitive sport starts Wednesday10th February for SCISSA, Yr 7-10 Volleyball and 11-12 Soccer. Students who have signed up for these sports will have information sent through to parents soon. If there are any questions or concerns regarding how competitive sport afternoons will run, please contact Mr Cameron West-McInnes or Mrs Natalie Campbell.


Last year, CareMonkey (the mobile health and safety program used by our Sports Department) rebranded and are now called Operoo. You may at times see communications relating to either of these programs, however moving forward in 2021 we will be referring to Operoo as our sports communications program. 

Thank you to the many families who have created and/or updated their Operoo accounts and student care profiles. Please remember, your profile and account are owned by you and as such, the College cannot update any details on your behalf i.e. email addresses.

For new families, if you have not yet seen an invitation to create your child’s profile, please check your Junk Mail folder in the first instance. If you cannot find the email request, please contact our Sports Aide Mrs Natalie Campbell: Emails will come from Operoo Administrator and will generally have a subject heading stating, “Pacific Lutheran College is requesting…”.
