Pri­mary Fut­sal Cup

TWENTY-EIGHT pri­mary stu­dents trav­elled to Ox­ley to take on the Term 4 Pri­mary Fut­sal Cup.

St Joseph’s stu­dents faced some tough com­pe­ti­tion play­ing against schools that have fut­sal ex­cel­lence pro­grams.

The stu­dents per­formed well though, em­ploy­ing great team­work and sports­man­ship.

St Joseph’s en­tered three boys’ teams – an un­der-10s, un­der-11s and un­der-12s – into the Un­der-12s Com­pe­ti­tion, with two teams mak­ing the quar­ter-fi­nals.

It was a great ef­fort by the boys to play against stu­dents older than them­selves.

The girls’ team bat­tled some tough teams to make it into the big dance but ran out of stamina in the fi­nal game.

The girls were awarded with the run­ners-up medal for the sec­ond time this year. Well done girls.

A big thank you to all of the teach­ers for trav­el­ling with the stu­dents on the day.

Teddy Bear Hospi­tal

MED­I­CAL stu­dents from the Univer­sity of South­ern Queens­land shared their knowl­edge and skills re­cently when they vis­ited St Joseph’s School to demon­strate med­i­cal pro­ce­dures to the Prep stu­dents.

Stu­dents dressed up in hospi­tal at­tire and learned about the bones in their bod­ies – with a friendly plas­tic skele­ton and a colour­ing-in ex­er­cise.

They lis­tened to their hearts with the stetho­scope and dressed “in­juries” on each other and on their teddy bears.

The med­i­cal stu­dents also demon­strated how a plas­ter cast is put on and why it is used when a bone is bro­ken.

Thank you to Dr Dan Hal­l­i­day, Amy Hill and the med­i­cal stu­dents for giv­ing up their valu­able time to teach and en­ter­tain our Prep stu­dents.

Thank you also to

Naomi Pradella for or­gan­is­ing this won­der­ful ac­tiv­ity.

PHO­TOS: CON­TRIB­UTED

PRAC­TI­CAL: Prep kids, with as­sis­tance from USQ med stu­dents, get a les­son in health and well-be­ing.

St Joseph’s has again ex­celled on the fut­sal court.
