Week 3 of Winter Activities
Well done to all students, staff and coaches on a full round of winter activities last weekend. It was great to see so many students fully engaged and committed in the wide range of activities we have on offer here at Waverley.
Check That You Understand All Co-curricular Expectations
- It is essential all students allow for enough travel time to ensure they arrive a minimum of 30 minutes prior to the start of their matches.
- All students are required to be wearing full Waverley College sporting attire or full College winter uniform if they are supporting any teams as a spectator.
- Any leave requests need to be made with as much notice as possible, to allow for appropriate adjustments to be made. School co-curricular commitments also take precedence over any club commitments, however, students are entitled to a maximum of two exemptions per calendar year.
- Any student who is sick or injured will require a medical certificate explaining their absence.
- Any absence from training also requires parents/carers to submit a co-curricular absence form or an email to the Convenor of that activity, Mr Wilmot, or myself.
Our Debating Teams performed very well at OLSH last Friday evening, with some excellent arguments presented by all teams. Well done to all teams on a fantastic second round against OLSH! Waverley won 4/6 debates.
Congratulations to Marko Rangan (Year 12) who was selected in the CIS Opens Basketball team. Also, congratulations to our 1st Basketball Coach, Mr Johnston, who is the CIS Under 16 Assistant Coach.
Congratulations to Lincoln Tanner who has been selected as a member of the U17 New South Wales Academy for Water Polo. We wish him all the best at the AIS training camp next week.
CIS Trials Hockey and Rugby League
This week and next week we have a number of boys trialing for CIS Hockey and Rugby League. I want to wish these boys the best of luck. Students are reminded that they need to catch up on any schoolwork missed and assessments are the priority if any clashes.
Congratulations to Kahu Capper who was selected in the CIS Opens Rugby League team.
