Term 2 began in earnest as thirteen Kew High School teams descended upon Monash University and Victoria University in May for the Futsal State Titles. While our results on the pitch were exceptional, we were just as impressed with the way our students conducted themselves off the court. The continual encouragement, support and advice from the sidelines lifted many of our teams and demonstrated the immense pride our students have for the school. The collective buy-in from students has now become the trademark of Kew High School and we couldn’t be prouder of this.
Congratulations to the following teams who were successful in their competitions: Under 14 Boys, Under 16 Boys and Under 16 Girls. We also had three teams finish runners up and congratulate them on their achievements including: Under 14 Girls, Under 15 Boys, Under 16 Girls. We’d also like to thank our student coaches: Ollie, Sam, Kouki, Jess, Isabella, Seb and Leo with each of their teams qualifying for their respective grand finals.
In outdoor soccer, we had ten teams represent Kew High School in our inter-school division competition. Our Year 9 boys took out the title, going through the day undefeated. Ultimately, we were impressed with how all our teams performed with plenty of goals and an attacking brand of soccer on display. Once again, we were blessed with excellent student coaches including Matthew, Vasili, Luci, Ben, Reuben and Kosta and we thank them for their contributions on the day.
The soccer doesn’t stop in Term 3 either, with the Kew Premier League returning as students from Year 9-12 will take to the Govic-Jowett Arena for a chance at the ultimate prize in Kew High domestic soccer.
