Hockey and Netball Parents

Thank you to all the parents who are helping with our sports teams this year, without you our students would not be able to play!

Following are some opportunities to help you grow your skills in each code:


Umpiring course: 10.30 am, Saturday 8 May, Netball courts.

Please let me know asap if you would like to attend. It would be great to have as many netball parents come to this as possible. We need people to train as umpires because if we don’t have umpires for games they will not earn points in their respective grades.


“In the Know” Forums
One representative per every school team is asked to attend only one of the two sessions: Tuesday 11th 7 pm or Wednesday 12th 5 pm – both to be held at Marton School. You are very welcome to send more than 1 rep per team – this session will be very informative for parents and caregivers also!
