With the news of an extended lockdown, we are faced with many community sporting competitions ending their season early. This is certainly not the ending we had hoped for the CGGS winter sporting season; however, we remain optimistic as we set our sights on Term 4.
In good news, many of our co-curricular sports and activities coaches/teachers have been challenging the girls virtually, by providing skills and drills challenges that have been entertaining to follow and see! We hope to see our CGGS community taking advantage of the warm weather and getting outside to stay active leading into the school holidays.
CGGS Term 4 co-curricular sport and activities sign-up is now available to the Senior School, and we are in the process of opening sign-up for the Junior School. There is a lot of planning behind the scenes for school based competition and fitness, so that we are ready for a return to sport in Term 4.
We look forward to updating you further as we work with various associations and groups to implement a safe return to training and competition activities, in alignment with ACT Government advice.
In closing, as I sit here in Tokyo about to board my flight home to Sydney for 14 days’ quarantine, I would like to thank the entire CGGS community for their support, messages and emails during my competition here at the Paralympics. Tokyo put on a performance of its own. Their people were outstanding, making us feel welcome and safe in their country with continuous smiles, waves and excitement when they saw us. The experience was humbling, and I am proud of my crew and I for finishing fourth in the world given a really difficult lead in, with minimal time together in the challenging environment that we all continue to navigate. I look forward to sharing my experiences and many pictures with the girls on my return.
