Rugby League Gala Day


​Last term we had the benefit of having NRL Development Officer Tyson Muscat working with some of our students developing their rugby league skills.  Tyson invited our students to participate in a Rugby League Gala Day at Abbott Park on Friday 18th September.  Primary students Finn, Hayden, Cameron, Lane, Harry, Damon, Clayton, Jack, Dylan and Kane created the Calen Cannonballs team.  Together they played five matches with only 15 minute breaks between the games – the team managed to win one match and tie on the last game.  It was the team’s first real game and during the day they came up against some tough competition and even played Proserpine the overall winner for the Gala Day.  Congratulations to Dylan and Kane who were named players of the match.  It was a long day for the players arriving at Calen School at 7:30am and not returning until 4:00pm.  All of the players thoroughly enjoyed themselves and in fact had so much fun, that they can’t wait to play again next year. A very special thank you to Kerri Schimanski, Leah Sturdy and Sharanne Jones for transporting our students to this event with very little notice.
