Principal's Message

From Principal, Mr Graham Leddie

Principal Graham Leddie

Principal, Mr Graham Leddie

Dear Parents and Carers, 

I hope all boys have had a great start to Term 4 and that our Year 12s are progressing well with their respective HSC examinations.

At today’s leadership assembly we celebrated and acknowledged all our Year 12 Leaders, the new College Captains, House Captains, Prefects, and Cocurricular Captains. I apologise to those that watched online, we did experience some technical difficulties. 

The new College Captain elect, Peter Stamatelatos challenged all students to be grateful for what they have in their lives by using both words and deeds. He also spoke of the Edmund Rice Touchstones assisting us to find the right bearings. 

I asked the assembly to consider the words of American author John Maxwell with respect to their leadership. 

‘The pessimist complains about the wind. 

The optimist expects it to change 

The leader adjusts the sails’

We expect our Year 12s to be the leaders of the College, they have the helm to ensure that we stay on an even keel and ship shape. I asked them how they were going to adjust the Waverley sails on their watch, what crew traditions need renewing, and what customs need to be challenged? I reassured them that their parents, teachers, support staff and the Year 5-11 crew, are all willing to bear a hand and that our wishes are for plain sailing and safe passage. 

On the College communities behalf, I encouraged them to enjoy the voyage and offered them best of luck and Godspeed.

COVID Episode 2

After returning to face-to-face learning, we continued to document life at Waverley for the second and hopefully the final instalment of the coronavirus series: Connection and CollaborationThe video highlights how far we have come over the last two terms by staying connected and working together as a community. It will also capture something similar to a time capsule, some of the happenings at the College during this historic and challenging time. 

This year, we have seen a slow unravelling of the systems that connect us to each other – schools, hospitals, age care facilities, places of worship, border access, and family support systems that we rely on. 

We have had to find new ways to live our lives and stay connected to each other. We need to recognise that it’s normal in a situation of ongoing uncertainty such as a pandemic, that we have ups and downs, we can feel depleted or exhausted and experience periods of burnout. 

To get us through these challenging times, we need to:

  • Accept that life is different now
  • Find activities that fulfil us
  • Embrace our faith
  • Focus on maintaining and strengthening our relationships
  • Build resilience in each other, so that our community can get through this together.

We pray for those countries that are struggling at this time and we hope a vaccine can be found and distributed across the world. We are grateful for what we have

I hope you enjoy the episode.

 


Old Waverley Uniform, We Need You!

Do you have old Waverley uniforms hanging around at home? The College is rehoming and recycling your unwanted items – and we’re on the lookout for as many of them as possible.

Good quality items are being sent to communities like Timor-Leste and Fiji, so they can be used by schools in need. Items that are no longer wearable can also be reused, but we’re handing them over to businesses that will benefit from them instead – like cleaning companies.

How You Can Help

We’d be very grateful if members of our College community could return their old uniforms to the second hand clothing pool by Monday, 2 December.

Instead of binning your Waverley-branded items or leaving them with charity shops, please:

  • Leave items/bags outside the second hand clothing pool (Main Building, Level 3), or outside the main building if closed
  • Separate good quality items for rehoming from poor quality items (eg ripped, stained or well-worn) for recycling
  • Clearly label items/bags to assist our volunteers, who are managing the process
