Important Information

This year the CCSSA has decided to change the format of the Interschool Carnival. This year 8 schools will be competing at this years carnival. With this increase in schools it means that Aubin Grove will need to take less students this year. On the 24th of October, the jumps and throws day, only the competitor who placed in first postion will be required to attend the carnival. Unlike in previous years where both first and second would attend. If your child placed second in any of the following events: Long Jump, Triple Jump, Shot Put or Turbo Jav then unfortunately they wont be able to attend the carnival. Each school is required only 1 particapant for each event totalling 8 students across all schools. We understand that second place students will be dissapointed but this will the format of the carnival this year.

Sporting Schools Term 4

The Sporting Schools program will be returning to Aubin Grove Primary midway during Term 4. Please keep an eye out for emails for further information regarding this. Emails will be sent out early on in Term 4 so that all parents will have the time to submit an application for their child. The sports being offered this term will be Aussie Rules, Basketball and Volleyball.

Teacher V Faction Captains Soccer Match

On the last day of Term 1, the faction captains and teachers played a much anticipated soccer match, the first ever at Aubin Grove. There was a lot of talk, days prior to the match as the students began to prepare for the game. The faction captains used their lunch times to train in anticipation for a tough encounter with the fearless teachers. The day finally arrived with perfect weather, a sunny 22 degrees with a slight breeze moving across the ground. Kick off was scheduled for 2:00 and as the time arrived for the game to start, hundreds of students had flocked to the oval to see the match take place. The teachers were dealt a blow with the news that Mr Hanna and Miss Woodfin would not be able to play due to the Easter Egg hunt happening with the Pre Primary classes.


The teachers began with the kick off and play was underway. The faction captains had plenty of trouble escaping their own half within the first five minutes. A very unorthodox looking forward line including Mr Holland, Mr Beard and Miss Bent were proving plenty of trouble up front while defenders Mr Crake, Mr Ribeiro and Mrs Jeric-McFayden were proving harder to get past than a salesman in the middle of Garden City. Eventually the teachers broke through the faction captains defence and Mr Beard was able to score their first goal.


The on lookers cheered with delight as Mr Beard celebrated. Immediately after the goal Mr Pansini had made his way down to the oval and took his place in the middle of the park. Play restarted and teachers had earned themselves a corner. At this point little spot fires were breaking out everywhere. Mr Pansini and “another student” called Matthew were involved in a wrestle of the ball, while Mr Holland decided that Jazz needed to have a closer inspection of the grass as they too began wrestling on the floor. Referee Liam, had decided to let this go as the teachers took their corner. The ball fortuitously fell to the boot of Mr Paparone who then volleyed the ball at the goal putting the teachers 2-0 up just before half time.

During the half time break the faction captains were busy talking tactics while the teachers had a slightly different approach. Some teachers were sighted drinking Berocca, some were getting their calves strapped, some were applying deep heat and some were simply lying on the grass getting their breath back . The second half began and Mr Holland, who was getting plenty of shots away, was probably closer to hitting the sun rather than the goals. The teachers had made a breakaway and were able to score their third goal with a chip over the top of their second half goalkeeper, Kiefer. The teachers were in a commanding position and when Mr Beard was able to put away their fourth the match appeared to be over. The teacher’s goalkeeper Mr Alessandrini, was more reliable than a bottle of Rexona until he had an absolute brain fade when he kicked the ball straight to Jasmine. She then quickly reacted and kicked the faction captains first ever goal!! Liam then blew the final whistle and the match came to an end with the teachers victorious with a 4-1 win. The teachers now take a 1-0 lead in the “tri series” with the next game predicted to be on the last day of school in Term 2.
