From the Head of Green House, Scott Coleman
2017 Year 12
As we farewell our year 12 Green students, I can’t help but look back at the journey they have travelled in their time as Waverley College students. For some it is a journey that began in 2010 at the junior school, while welcoming many others at the start of year 7 in 2012.
It has been a journey of many triumphs, adversity and success. The men they have become is a testament to the support the students have received from parents, guardians, teachers, friends and multiple other influences in their life. We have been lucky, as a school to be an important part of their story so far, and know they will have success wherever the seek to travel and wish them all the best in their future endeavours.
I must make a special mention to all the Green House Mentors that have supported our year 12 students during their final year. The support the teachers have provided has made the success of each boy possible.
I would also like to mention all the parents for the education you have provided our year 12 boys. By choosing Waverley College, the boys have become learners, social justice advocates, sportsmen, debaters, friends, and transitioned to adulthood.
I want to praise all the efforts that every student has provided to Green House and Waverley College in their time at the school. They have each had a positive impact on the school somewhere in their journey and the school is now a better place for having them come through.
As a house, we wish you all the best with your exams and thank you for your service to Waverley College.
Throughout this article are some photos of our year 12 cohort from their time at Waverley.

Year 9 Camp
Congratulations to our year 9 campers from this term. From all reports it was a successful experience for all involved. A special mention also to our year 9 and 10 students who engaged in the Duke of Edinburgh program for its induction in 2017.
Year 10 Dinner Dance
Our year 10 students engaged in the year 10 dinner dance this term. After a three course meal the boys spent the night dancing with friends and partners. A joyous celebration as they enter into their senior years of schooling.
For all parents, please find a link to the photos from the evening, that parents can purchase if they wish.

End of the Winter Season Success
While the term was busy with lots of events, I must make mention of the special year we had for the winter season. Our firsts football and rugby both achieved successful premierships, but more importantly, Waverley was recognised for the sportsmanship, camaraderie and passion with which they played. Winning a competition means nothing without showing some important signs off the field and by all accounts we managed to do that with great success this year. Congratulations to all students who engaged in the winter program and successfully took part in one of the best CAS seasons we have seen from Waverley in many years.
I wish you all a safe and enjoyable holiday break and look forward to seeing you all next term.
