Athletics Carnival

20 July 2018

All students had a great day participating in competitive and standard events, while also enjoying the delicious bacon and egg rolls, kebabs and sno cones prepared by the Sports Supporters, and the Two Moos coffee van.

Not only were the girls competing for the School but they were also competing for selection in the Queensland team to ride at the National Interschool Championships being held at Werribee, Victoria, in October.

Although Glennie secondary students won this award, Ellie Stenzel (Year 4) needs to be acknowledged as our lone Primary School rider who competed in Show Horse, Showman and Dressage and achieved excellent results. Well done Ellie!

Congratulations to Ellie Reedy (Eventing), Shelby Emmerton (Show Horse), Keeleigh Wise (Eventing), Holly Hurst (Combined Training), Becci Roellgen (Combined Training) who have been selected in the Queensland team.

As this is the last major Interschool event for the year, I would like to thank all girls who contributed to some great results this year, along with those students who, due to personal injury or injury to their horse, assisted other students, parents, instructors and other supporters to achieve their goals.

Fillies Back in Action

20 July 2018

The Glennie Fillies team played their first game of the term on Monday while still technically on holidays. Despite not having played football for three weeks, and perhaps even not having participated in physical activity, the girls rose to the challenge of playing an extremely skilled and strong Highfields Team.

There were moments of pure class from both sides of the sporting field, with perfect plays made to give Glennie an advantage. Despite this, the Fillies team lost 3-1, which is a very respectable score against a team who is used to dominating their opponents. Congratulations girls, on a fantastic first game back!

World Class Football

21 June 2018

It’s been an extremely busy week in football, not only internationally, but also here at Glennie.

On Monday, a team of 16 students from Years 7 to 10 travelled to Stanthorpe to play in the regional final of the Bill Turner Cup. It was an extremely chilly and windy day in Stanthorpe. The girls displayed fantastic resilience to bring a display of great football. Unfortunately, the team lost 2-0 to the more experienced Stanthorpe team. Everyone appreciated the post-game hot chocolate generously brought to Stanthorpe by Mrs Smith and the chocolate brownies baked by Mrs Mott!

Backing up on Tuesday, the Glennie Junior Footballers had a World Cup training session. The girls divided into teams from ‘Brazil’, ‘Austragina’ and ‘KorRussTania’. Bribery and an unlawful player meant that there was no clear result from the tournament, however, all students had a great afternoon of playing for their ‘countries’.

On Wednesday, the highly-anticipated annual Glennie/Grammar football match, hosted by the Interact Committee, took place, with the proceeds going to the charity Help Kids Like Nick. At half time, the girls were trailing 3-0, however, they dug deep and fought back equalising the game before full time, sending us into a penalty shootout. The girls showed Grammar who was dominant in the penalty shoot-out, scoring 4 goals, to Grammar’s 1. The Glennie/Grammar trophy, donated by the Willmington family, was presented to Glennie captain, Kiralee Bronkhurst at the conclusion of the game.

Thank you very much to the huge crowd that turned out to support the match. It was fantastic to see so many people enjoying the game and supporting a fantastic cause.
