St Luke’s College delivers smoking performance
St Luke’s College was among many schools that attended the Smarter Than Smoking Cup held in Newman late last month.
The schools included St Luke’s College and Karratha Senior High School and Tom Price, Port Hedland and Newman high schools.
St Luke’s College teacher Melanie Kearney said that each school played against each other in 10-minute games throughout the day.
“There was then a play-off in the finals to find out who was the best team on the day,” she said.
“It was a great day and gave the students the opportunity to play a sport against other schools who also don’t have to best access to sporting facilities.”
Karratha Senior High School took out first by two points and the male team for St Luke’s College finished second overall.
Karratha’s female team finished in third place.
“Both teams played really well and the girls tried exceptionally hard to show they have just as good footy skills as the boy,” Ms Kerney said.
“Some year 12 student coached the teams as part of their assignment on becoming a coach.
“They did a number of after school training sessions to make sure they were ready for the games.”
