Sport Update Term 2 Week 3

Wednesday, 11 May 2022



For anything regarding Barracuda Club sports please email or call Nat Titcume or Martin Kelleher.

If your child has been at a sporting event for school, please collect them at the required time. The staff have had a long day too and also like to get home. I understand that the bus can sometimes be held up, if this is the case, we try to put a text message out to parents, if it is a secondary excursion, we ask the students to contact their parents as they usually have phones or students can ask a staff member if they can use theirs.

Please remember, as much as BDC would like to make sport more cost-efficient, there are a large number of factors that come into the costing of events. Transport, accommodation, uniforms, entry fees and the list goes on and on.

If you nominate your child for team selection to an NCIS sport, please be aware that if selected, you have committed to the payment to attend the sport in Sydney or wherever it is being held. If you withdraw your child, you will be required to pay the $100 non-refundable deposit.

ALL NCIS correspondence is to go through the sports administrators or Please DO NOT contact NCIS direct.

We can’t always project what the costs will be for each event prior to all the information and numbers of students attending. 

Estimates for your decision of whether your child attends:

  • Coffs Harbour events up to approx. $30 
  • Traveling events up to approx. $100
  • Travel and overnight events approx. $100 - $200
  • NCIS/NSWCIS events $5 - $450 depending on the event, travel cost, individual, team

Our philosophy of sport outlines how travel and costs are set, including NCIS/CIS or rep sport.

Travel and Costs

Selected Bishop Druitt College team members will travel together to competitions. It is possible for students participating in events such as NCIS Swimming or NCIS Cross Country to travel with their parents.

With equity in mind, a standard charge will be levied for all students attending NCIS events whether they travel with their parents or on a school bus and share team accommodation.

BDC Cross Country

2022, if it is not COVID getting in the way of sport it is the weather. The weather saw us make alternative plans to run the cross country at Jetty Beach with competitive runners only. This isn’t an ideal situation, and we hope to be able to hold a fun run later in the year for all students to ‘have a go’ and gain some valuable house points.

Congratulation to our house champions - Kngwarreye! who won both the Secondary and Primary shields.

Congratulations also to the age champions and runners up.

NSWCIS Open Boys Football

The open boys made the trip North to play Lindisfarne Anglican School in the 2nd round of the CIS Football Cup.

With the Year 12's on retreat it was left to the younger year groups to attempt to qualify to a 3rd round match against Newington College.

After falling behind early in the match, some calm finishes from Logan Sambrook & Campbell Brear saw us take the lead 2-1.

Lindisfarne came out firing in the second half and quickly pounced to take a commanding lead. A strong end to the second half & a Hugo Alderman goal wasn't enough to come out victorious as the final score saw Lindisfarne win 6-3.

Thanks to Mr Andrews for coaching the team this year.

Bill Turner Football


After two years of the Bill Turner Cup Competition being interrupted by Covid, our U15's team returned to the field against Bellingen.

Some quality link up play led to a commanding lead being established early in the match.

A measured display in the second half resulted in the majority of the game being played in Bellingen's defensive half.

Some clinical finishing saw the match end 10-0 with the Boys now awaiting our next opponent in the next round of the knockout competition.

Gaol scorers: Kai Veneziano (3), Logan Sambrook (2), Will Hodgson (1), Taylor Clark (1), Ryan Giles (1), Xavier Poole (1) & Eli Friel (1).

Thank you to Mr Heywood for training the team and Mr Kelleher for coaching on the day.


On Monday the 9th of May the Bill Turner U15's girls team competed against Woolgoolga High School. Having had very little time to train as a team due to the extreme weather during Term 1 the girls were anxious with how they would perform as a unit. This feeling was quickly forgotten as the girls took the field and began weaving delicate passes and commanding runs around the opposition. The effort by the girls was commendable along with the high level of sportsmanship on display. They now look forward to competing in the 3rd round of the Bill Turner Trophy.

Thank you to Mr Norberry for coaching the team.

MNC Primary Rugby Union 7’s

BDC were well represented at the MNC gala day in both U10’s and U12’s with 2 teams in each age division.

All teams played extremely good rugby and made semi finals. The U10’s blue team progressed into the final, where St Augustine’s had a convincing win over BDC. The U12’s blue team were unlucky to go down in the final to a very strong St Augustine’s team. The 12’s blue have progressed through to the next round to be held later this term.

Thank you to all the BDC coaches who went above and beyond with our players both before and on the day. The time they gave up for our teams is very much appreciated.


Congratulations to Halo Campbell (7), Keira Williams (12), Molly Williams (9) and Bailey Johnson (7) on their selection into NSWCIS teams.

  • Keira for open girls’ basketball
  • Halo for 15&under girls AFL.
  • Bayley Johnson for swimming
  • Molly Williams for hockey

BDC had 4 girls and 6 boys travel to Sydney as part of the NCIS Touch Football teams, all players represented both BDC and North Coast extremely well and should be proud of their efforts.

Five BDC boys are competing this week at the AICES Rugby Union trials as part of the NCIS team. The boys were reporting back that the other players were sooooo big! They all played extremely well with Tom O’Connor (10) being selected into the AICES team. Congratulations Tom.

Two girls and one boy are representing BDC and NCIS at NSWCIS Hockey this term.

The girls played on Tuesday and the boys selections are later this term.

During the recent school holidays, BDC student Molly Williams (9) travelled to Newcastle to contest the U15 Girls National Hockey Championships. Molly was playing with the NSW ‘Lions’ who finished the tournament in 6th position out of 12 teams following their 7 round matches and classification games. Playing predominantly in the mid-field, Molly was a key contributor to her team and even managed to score her first ever goal for NSW. Congratulations to Molly and the NSW ‘Lions’.

Quinn Evans (8) and Kden Carter (8) represented Under 14s Northern Eagles at the NSW Junior Regionals Touch Football Championships this weekend at Tuggerah. They both played amazingly, with great defence and scoring tries. Their team made it through to the semi-finals, going down 3-2 against Sydney Mets.
