Co-curricular Sport and Culture Highlights
Today was our annual House Athletics Carnival at ES Marks Athletics Field. It was a stimulating, busy day and we hope you enjoy the photos above. Information about the Carnival will be published in next week’s Nurrunga (Friday, 26 May edition).
We are away to St Aloysius’ this week for many teams, as well as a number of fixtures at Queens Park against St Augustine’s. It was great to see a large majority of students competing to the best of their ability last weekend, against high-quality opposition in all codes.
Congratulations to the 1st Debating and Volleyball teams who had great wins on the weekend and have continued to perform at a high level over the last couple of weeks.
AFL Indigenous Round – Walawaani Cup – Friday, 19 May, Pioneers Park
A reminder that tonight the 1st AFL team will be playing against Cranbrook in the AFL Indigenous Round. Walawaani in Dhurga language means ‘Safe Journey’ and it is also the name of our First Nations program at Waverley. Moving forward, our Indigenous round will be playing for the ‘Walawaani Cup.’
We encourage as many people as possible from the Waverley College community to come and support this event. The pre-game ceremony will start at 7pm with the game starting at 7:15pm.
On Saturday, we have a big day of rugby at Queens Park. All teams will be playing St Augustine’s at Queens Park with all ‘A’ teams playing on Queens Park 1. It should be a great day of entertaining Rugby, so please come down and support the day.
*All students must be in full Waverley attire, otherwise they will not be permitted to stay.

The NSW government has released the ‘Shoosh for Kids’ campaign which is based around everyone involved in community and school sport respecting our referees. Please click the button below to view the Office of Sport website and its ‘Shoosh for Kids’ resources.
Keep it positive. Keep it fun. Keep kids coming back to junior sport!
Communication Expectations for Parents and Carers
I also want to remind all parents/carers of expectations at training and games in regards to communication with staff and coaches. Parents are asked to please remain at a distance at all training sessions, to allow coaches to do their jobs effectively.
Please avoid approaching and speaking to coaches whilst a fixture is on – recognise the value and importance of our coaches. If there are any issues or concerns, I would request that you only contact the convenor of that activity or myself, after the session or fixture.
Good luck to all teams and co-curricular activities over this coming weekend.
