From Director of Co-Curricular, Mr Steve O’Donnell
It has been great to see the enthusiastic way in which students have embraced the resumption of modified co-curricular training. A big thank you to the staff and coaches who have implemented the necessary hygiene, social distancing, role marking and other required measures. The students have certainly been very keen and are asking many questions about when we will be playing games. For students’ health and wellbeing, it is also vitally important that they attend their compulsory sessions.
We will continue to follow the Government and AIS advice on sport. With restrictions easing after Wednesday, 1 July, we will be publishing training opportunities in the upcoming holidays. For contact sports like rugby that have specific safety protocols in preparation, students will need to complete these components before being allowed to undertake trials and participate in game situations. We will also publish an updated training schedule for Term 3, as well as information regarding trials at the end of the upcoming holidays.
Thank you, also, to our Year 12 staff, who have been offering tutorials to senior students each Saturday. There has been a very pleasing commitment from these students in taking up these extra opportunities.
As you are aware, we were the House Track and Field carnival was scheduled for next Wednesday, 24 June at ES Marks. Unfortunately, due to current restrictions, this carnival will be cancelled for 2020. The day will be a normal school day for all students with face-to-face teaching.
