Special thanks to all those who donated raffle prizes, food, drinks and time towards making this event so good.

Darling Downs Cross Country

25 May 2018

On Tuesday, a team of 30 middle and senior years students competed at the Darling Downs Cross Country Trials. Glennie had a successful day with Abigail Schoorl (Year 12), Charlotte Lindemann (Year 12), Molly Martin (Year 10), Selena Still (Year 10), Alyssa Baker (Year 10) and Zoe Waters (Year 7) being selected in the Darling Downs Team.

Congratulations to all the girls who competed and to those who are now training for the Queensland State Championship.

Congratulations also to all students who competed in the West Zone Team at Darling Downs Cross Country on Tuesday 22 May. The weather conditions made the course difficult.

Rugby Gala Day

25 May 2018

On Wednesday, Ella Kowitz, Jordyn Schriek, Alex McDonald, Skye-Maree Brameld, Taylah Stanley, Bella Byrne, Taleah McGrane, Taylor Stienmuller (inj), Matilda Leicht, Bridie Emmerton, Mykaila Saal, Lucy Stanford, Meg MacGillivray, Josie Larsen, Selena Still, Jessica Burke and Laura Hunt participated in the Karyn Murphy 9s Women’s Rugby League Cup. This is a statewide competition that started in 2017.  It was our inaugural year in the competition, and the girls are now the Darling Downs Champions. What a way to start our Rugby League pathway! They will travel to Ipswich to play against South West, Met. West and South Coast in order to compete for a spot in the Queensland Final.

The day consisted of two pools with nine teams from various Schools in Toowoomba. Our girls were undefeated in their pool and went directly into the final to play against an impressive team from Mount Lofty SHS. The game was drawn one all at half time. As a result of some strong coaching by Miss Shenae Ciesiolka, the girls managed to create another three scoring opportunities to win the game.

While I could list a number of impressive individual players and playing moments, I believe the most impressive aspect of this team is the manner in which they played together. For the majority of girls this was their first game of rugby league. It was Miss Ciesiolka’s guidance and the encouragement from seasoned players that allowed the team to create some wonderful moments of play throughout the day.

A big thank you to Team Manager,  Mr Griffith’s for being the driving force behind the team and for allowing the girls the opportunity to play. Congratulations to Shenae and the girls for representing the School with such pride.

We look forward to hearing about your successes in the next round; Good Luck!

2018 All Schools Touch Football Campaign

25 May 2018

Training is underway for our All Schools Touch Football squads with 52 girls registering, hopeful for a spot in a team. The 13 years team started their training last Monday and the 15s and Opens will train on Sunday.

As in previous years, places are hotly contested and players commit to a 10-week training program and the opportunity to play in two tournaments prior to the Queensland All Schools teams being announced in August.  Specific team training increases in the final six weeks in preparation for the Queensland event held in Brisbane in October.

This year, we are again blessed to have Miss Elizabeth Campbell coaching the Open team, Miss Shenae Ciesiolka coaching the 15 Years and Miss Abbie Prendergast taking the reins of the 13 Years. It is the opportunity of a lifetime to be instructed by Australian level and representative players, and I am sure our girls feel very privileged.

We wish the coaching staff and teams all the very best for their preparations and look forward to hearing about their successes throughout this season.

Five Years in a Row!

25 May 2018

Glennie has been crowned the Grand Champion School and the Champion Secondary school for the fifth year in a row at the Pryde’s Easifeed Darling Downs and South West Interschool Equestrian Championships held from May 11 to 13.

Glennie won all Secondary disciplines except for Dressage where we were runner-up. It was most exciting to win the Secondary Showjumping trophy. This we have not won for a number of years. The secondary team was supported by our lone primary school rider, Ellie Stenzel. Ellie rode in three disciplines and was reserve champion for two and champion for the other. This is an outstanding achievement by a rider in Year 4. Well done, Ellie! Congratulations also go to Sarah Coggan who was the recipient of the ‘Summers Trophy’; an award presented to the Secondary rider who has accumulated the most points across the overall competition.

There were a number of Glennie parents who were crucial to the success of the weekend at a Darling Downs level. These included Ben Muirhead - President of the Darling Downs Organising Committee, Maureen Johnston - Showman convenor, Kirstie Ferguson - Combined Training and Stabling Convenor, Jill Hurst and Paul Reedy. Our Glennie Equestrian Supporters Team President, Paul Reedy, along with past student, Emily Coggan (2015) announced the events over the weekend. Paul also organised the Glennie camp and co-ordinated dinner arrangements for the two nights. Thank you to GEST for spreading the hospitality not only to all Glennie team members and their families, but also to other schools. Lastly, thank you to parents who assisted in constructing arenas and courses, packing them up and towing trailers back to Toowoomba.

We wish all girls well in their preparations for the State Interschool Championships (Dressage, Showman, Show Horse and Showjumping) being held in Caboolture from June 30 to July 3.

Miss Jacky Redman
Equestrian Team Co-ordinator

Fillies

18 May 2018

Monday night saw the much-anticipated clash between our very new Fillies Team and top of the table club, Highfields.

The skyline was as dramatic as the match, with our girls clinching an early lead, managing to hold on until the second half. Highfields equalised early on in the second half, despite our best efforts.

The score remained 1-1 until the final whistle where, in a scramble in the goal mouth, Highfields clinched the winner in a controversial manner.

All credit to both teams for the tenacity, enthusiasm and sportsmanship we have come to expect. Our girls should be very proud of themselves, in terms of their improvement and desire to work hard to better their game. With their work ethic - anything is possible!
