There is plenty of talent when it comes to touch football at GCC in the Year 5 and 6 classes. The Boys A team and Boys B team claimed the title of Glasshouse Interschool Champions in the A and B divisions at the end of Term 3. Both teams were undefeated in the round robin games and won their finals well.
Sixty students played the three-week touch football competition after learning the game in PE lessons and training during lunchtimes in Term 3. The seven teams played really well and improved each week. Students also had lots of fun and got to know each other better. Teamwork in the sporting arena is a great way to get to know classmates and make new friends.
The mixed team also gelled together well as a team and played some fantastic touch. They won Pool 2 of the B division and played in the final of the B division against the GCC B Boys team. They lost this game 0 – 5 but were very proud to finish Runners Up in the B Division.
The girls teams had a mixture of wins and losses with the Girls B team finishing with the highest placing. They played against Maleny in the 3 vs 4 final and lost that game to finish in 4th place in the Girls B Division. The Girls A and C teams both finished in 5th place overall.
The Boys white team improved every week to win games well in Weeks 2 and 3. They finished in 5th place in the B Division in Pool 2.
Students can look forward to lots of touch football as they progress into Year 6 and 7 next year.
