On Court for a Cause

Since the start of term, we have been very busy with two events for our community.
Our first was our bushfire fundraiser: On Court for a Cause. Our event saw our wider community come together to see our Senior Girls play against Monash University and our Junior Boys play against Mazenod College. Throughout the night we involved the community with mini challenges for a gold coin donation to enter and were excited to see everyone get involved and have a go. We are excited to announce over the night we raised $1,241.30 which we have split and evenly donated to Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund and Wildlife Victoria.

We would like to thank Monash and Mazenod Volleyball clubs for supporting our event and helping make the matches possible, the staff who came to support throughout the night, our club sponsors for the prizes won, Mrs Hope for refereeing, Miss Parker and Ellie for organising the event, Andrew Krause for all the photography and media, and, the Principal team for their continuous and ongoing support for the program.
Our second event held from 4 - 6 March was the All Schools Beach Volleyball Championships, which we were grateful to take 24 teams over the three days. A big congratulations to all our teams but in particular to our Silver Medalist teams and the second best ranked teams in Victoria:

  • Year 7 Boys Fours
  • Year 8 Girls Fours
  • Year 10 Girls Fours and
  • Year 11 Boys Pairs.
We would also like to congratulate our Gold Medalists and the Victorian Champions in their age group:
  • Year 9 Boys Fours
  • Year 10 Boys Pairs and
  • Year 12 Fours.

All teams played extremely well and we are thrilled to announce that overall as a school we are now ranked as the third best Beach Volleyball School in the State.

Thank you again to Miss Parker, Ellie and Liam for their help in making these events possible. We look forward to sharing the success McKinnon Volley can bring over the course of the year.
