Welcome Back to Term 2

Welcome back to Term 2 and I hope all members of our community had an enjoyable break and Holy Easter period, as well as memorable ANZAC Day. Waverley College was its usually typical busy place during the holiday period.

A huge thank you to all of the staff and students that were part of the successful Japan Football and Rugby Tour. It was also great to see so many parents/carers over in Japan supporting the College. The students were outstanding and represented the College to a very high standard at all times.

We also had a number of staff and students involved in Year 12 Tutorials, Volleyball camps, AFL training as well as the Junior School Armidale Rugby Tour.

Full Winter Uniform and Use of Opal Cards Essential

A reminder for this Term that all students must be in full winter uniform, including blazers to and from school. Also, a letter was sent on the College app this week, reminding students and parents/carers of the importance of using their Opal Cards to tap on and off all public transport, including school special buses. This is to ensure we have adequate transport before and after school. The bus providers will also be conducting random checks to ensure compliance.

Wednesday, 3 May – Whole Year 12 Photo – Blazers Essential

A reminder to Year 12 students that our whole Year 12 photo in the Gym requires all students to be wearing blazers please.

This photo will be published in the 2023 Year Book so blazers are essential.


This week, we celebrated the appointment of all winter co-curricular Captains and 1sts teams and congratulations to those students presented. All students need to ensure that when they are supporting on the weekend, they must also be in full sports attire or winter uniform.

New Students and Staff

A very special welcome also to those new members of the College community this week. We have a handful of new students and a couple of new staff commencing their journey with us this Term, and I am sure that all members of the College community will embrace and assist these people when needed. Best wishes for Term 2.
