Sports Update

Term 1, Week 7

Last week saw the SMC Rams Volleyball, AFL and Basketball teams make the trip out to Redeemer Lutheran College for Round 4 of GBC sport.

As we reflect on this week’s games, let’s continue to support and encourage our student athletes in their endeavours. With determination, teamwork, and perseverance, we’re confident that Staines will continue to excel in sportsmanship and achievement.


GBC Primary


Our 3/4 and 5/6 AFL teams went to Redeemer Lutheran College to contest Round 4 of the season.

Our 3/4 team played against a solid Redeemer team, who were generous enough to lend us some players for the first half of the game. After a slow start the team found their confidence and started to climb back into contention for the game. A couple of late goals by Redeemer saw them come away with the win. Unlucky team, keep trying!

Our 5/6 team faced a strong opponent in Sheldon. The Sheldon team played with confidence and skill. Our SMC team did a fantastic job to stay in the match but ultimately were defeated by Sheldon. Keep working hard.

Devotion – You Need God’s Help

Devotion – You Need God’s Help

Self-help books and motivational speakers are like cheerleaders standing on the sidelines shouting, ‘You can do it!’ They can be helpful, but if the ‘you can do it’ philosophy always held true, we wouldn’t need God. Paul understood this. That’s why he wrote, ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’ (Philippians 4:13 NKJV). Discovering the will of God requires faith for the impossible and a childlike dependence on Him. The Bible is full of men and women who discovered their destiny in the perfect will of God by doing things that would ordinarily have been impossible to do on their own.
